Abstract

Subclinical ketosis (SCK) and periparturient diseases considerably account for economic and welfare losses in dairy cows. The majority of scientific reports investigating the prevalence of SCK and production diseases are based on empirical studies conducted in Western Europe and North America. The...

Abstract

Success of the cattle industry in Latin America is impeded by the common vampire bat, Desmodus rotundus, through decreases in milk production and mass gain and increased risk of secondary infection and rabies. We used ecological niche modeling to predict the current potential distribution of D....

Abstract

We analyzed the phylogenetic and time-space relationships (phylodynamics) of 181 isolates of vesicular stomatitis New Jersey virus (VSNJV) causing disease in Mexico and the United States (US) from 2005 through 2012. We detail the emergence of a genetic lineage in southern Mexico causing outbreaks...

Abstract

Dual purpose systems represent 78% of the bovine inventory in tropical Latin America and contribute ∼42% of the fresh milk production. However, these systems are characterized by low animal productivity due mainly to the use of low quality, poorly managed forages, and to low genetic potential of...

Abstract

The potential economic impact of the adoption of new Brachiaria hybrids on livestock production systems was evaluated using the economic model MODEXC. Two regions were considered in Colombia: the Northern Coast and the Eastern Plains. In Mexico, the tropical region was considered; and in Central...
