Abstract

Cattle have been invaluable for the transition of human society from nomadic hunter-gatherers to sedentary farming communities throughout much of Europe, Asia and Africa since the earliest domestication of cattle more than 10,000 years ago. Although current understanding of relationships among...

Abstract

Cattle pose estimation is a key step analyzing cattle behaviors and evaluating cattle health, hence, greatly significant for intelligent breeding of cattle. Computer vision based on cattle pose automatic estimation techniques were investigated in this paper and three deep cascaded convolutional...

Abstract

Current recommendations for the provision of water points for grazing beef cattle in northern Australia are based on effective grazing distribution rather than cattle water point use. Scientific examination of cattle watering behaviour under varying conditions of climate, pasture and water...

Abstract

Background: Selection of cattle that are less sensitive to environmental variation in unfavorable environments and more adapted to harsh conditions is of primary importance for tropical beef cattle production systems. Understanding the genetic background of sensitivity to environmental variation is ...

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

The multiple-lactation autoregressive test-day (AR) model is the adopted model for the national genetic evaluation of dairy cattle in Portugal. Under this model, animals' permanent environment effects are assumed to follow a first-order autoregressive process over the long (auto-correlations...

Abstract

Service sire has a major effect on reproductive success in dairy cattle. Recent studies have reported accurate predictions for Holstein bull fertility using genomic data. The objective of this study was to assess the feasibility of genomic prediction of sire conception rate (SCR) in US Jersey ...

Abstract

Deforestation in the Amazon with its vast consequences for the ecosystem and climate is largely related to subsequent land use for cattle ranching. In addition to conservation policies, proposals to reduce deforestation include measures to intensify cattle ranching. However, the effects of land-use ...

Abstract

Cattle released for summer grazing in south-boreal forest are free to select among a broad range of habitats. The goal of this study was to identify the factors influencing the microhabitat selection of such free-ranging beef cattle, for grazing and resting. We equipped sixteen female adult cows...

Abstract

Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in feedlot cattle. At feedlot arrival, classification of cattle groups into high- or low-risk based on their expected level of BRD is common, highly variable, and based on many subjective criteria. An accurate...
