Abstract

Recipient cow is the key to success in embryo transfer (ET) programs in cattle. Therefore, it is necessary to know the factors that influence on its reproductive potential. It is considered that multiparous cows have a better response to the ET program than nulliparous cows. The objective of this...

AbstractFull Text

Oaxaca is the most biodiverse state in México, represented by its wild species and domestic creole livestock. Two creole cattle populations from two regions of Oaxaca were analyzed (Zimatlan: n=26, Ecatepec: n=34) in order to assess their genetic diversity level and to clarify if they are two...

Abstract

Intensive silvopastoral systems (ISS) are a sustainable alternative to monoculture systems (MS). The presence of trees and legumes improves animal welfare due to the increased food quality and quantity and the presence of shade while providing a variety of environmental services. As cattle...

Abstract

The cattle fever tick, Rhipicephalus microplus (Canestrini) (Acari: Ixodidae), is a one-host tick that infests primarily cattle in tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world. This species transmits deadly cattle pathogens, especially Babesia spp., for which a recombinant vaccine is not...

Abstract

In the semi-arid highlands of central Mexico, triticale (× Triticosecale L.) is emerging as an alternative, less water-demanding forage crop than alfalfa for dairy cattle. Studies reported here were aimed at evaluating triticale hay (TH) relative to alfalfa hay (AH) for lactating cow performance,...
