Abstract

Background: Aurochs (Bos primigenius) were distributed throughout large parts of Eurasia and Northern Africa during the late Pleistocene and the early Holocene, and all modern cattle are derived from the aurochs. Although the mtDNA haplogroups of most modern cattle belong to haplogroups T and I,...

Abstract

Background: Cattle rearing in Cameroon is both economically and culturally important, however parasitic diseases detrimentally impact cattle productivity. In sub-Saharan Africa bovine fasciolosis is generally attributed to F. gigantica, although understanding of Fasciola species present and local...

AbstractFull Text

Estimation of animal weight is critical in cattle production to assist in herd management and to estimate the value chain prices of the animals. There is a lack of tools for small-scale farmers and stakeholders to readily estimate cattle weight in communal livestock farming systems in South Africa. ...

AbstractFull Text

The South African beef cattle population is heterogeneous and consists of a variety of breeds, production systems and breeding goals. Indigenous cattle breeds are uniquely adapted to their native surroundings, necessitating conservation of these breeds as usable genetic resources to sustain...

Abstract

Theileria parva is a tick-transmitted protozoan parasite that causes a disease called East Coast fever (ECF) in cattle. This important tick borne-disease (TBD) causes significant economic losses in cattle in many sub-Saharan countries, including Tanzania. Cattle immunization using Muguga cocktail...

Abstract

Measurement of liveweight of stock is one of the most important production tools available to farmers - playing a role in nutrition, fertility management, health and marketing. Yet most farmers in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to scales on which to weigh cattle. Heart girth measurements...

Abstract

Cost-effective high-density (HD) genotypes of livestock species can be obtained by genotyping a proportion of the population using a HD panel and the remainder using a cheaper low-density panel, and then imputing the missing genotypes that are not directly assayed in the low-density panel. The...

Abstract

Decisions of breeding schemes in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa tend to be either government or project driven, with a focus on upgrading local breeds. However, there is scant information on the individual animal traits that smallholder farmers prefer. The aim of this study was to examine...

Abstract

Foot-and-mouth-disease (FMD) is a highly contagious transboundary animal disease that has negative consequences on regional and international trade. Vaccination is an important approach for FMD control and an essential consideration is the degree of cross-protection conferred by the vaccine against ...
