Abstract

The procedure used for the genetic evaluation of dairy cattle in Japan has developed from a lactation sire-MGS model to a multiple-lactation random regression test-day animal model. Genetic evaluation of Holstein bulls in Japan began in 1989 with the use of field-style progeny testing; dairy herd...

Abstract

In livestock farming, a stark or barren environment compromises animal welfare. Environmental enrichment has been used to address the issue. For this study, after fattening cattle were provided with a grooming device (a brush), its effect on animal self-grooming and welfare were investigated. For...

AbstractFull Text

The transition period is a critical period in the production cycle of the dairy cow. This study aimed to describe the clinical and biochemical changes, particularly lecithin: cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) and apolipoprotein B-100 (ApoB-100), during the transition period in dairy cattle. It was ...

Abstract

We investigated the prevalence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli in cattle and swine at a slaughterhouse in Tottori Prefecture, Japan. ESBL-producing E. coli strains were isolated from the cecal contents in 1 of 93 cattle (1.1%) and 27 of 98 swine (27.6%). The...

Abstract

The infection of neonatal calves with Cryptosporidium parvum can have a huge economic impact because diarrhea caused by the parasite sometimes results in death. A serodiagnostic system will be helpful in the diagnosis of C. parvum infection. CpP23 is commonly used as an antigen for enzyme-linked...

Abstract

Background: An unfavorable genetic correlation between milk production and fertility makes simultaneous improvement of milk production and fertility difficult in cattle breeding. Rapid genetic improvement in milk production traits in dairy cattle has been accompanied by decline in cow fertility....
