Abstract

CNV1 and CNV2 of the GBP2 gene in 80 Qinchuan and 30 Jiaxian red cattle were detected by using quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR), respectively, to examine the variation of copy number and genetic effects of the GBP2 gene in Chinese cattle and the correlation of 2 CNV regions of GBP2 gene variation...

Abstract

Background: No comprehensive studies have been carried out on the infectious causes of abortion in Kenyan dairy cattle herds. A survey was carried out to determine the seroprevalence of antibodies against Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Virus (BVDV), Brucella abortus (BA) and Neospora caninum (NC) among...

Abstract

Confined animal feeding operations can facilitate the spread of genes associated with antibiotic resistance. It is not known how cattle removal from beef cattle backgrounding operation affects the persistence of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in the environment. We investigated the effect of...

Abstract

Sugarcane bagasse, a lignocellulosic biomass produced by sugar production, is rarely utilized directly due to economic concerns. However, pretreatment of this biomass could make it suitable as a feedstock for the beef cattle industry. Accordingly, this study investigated the effects of different...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the concentrations of total (T-GSH), oxidized (GSSG) and reduced glutathione (GSH) in blood of clinically healthy calves, to assess the effect of sex and age together with the type of feeding on its concentrations, and to assess the relationships between...

Abstract

Background: Single-step genomic best linear unbiased prediction (SSGBLUP) is a comprehensive method for genomic prediction. Point estimates of marker effects from SSGBLUP are often used for genome-wide association studies (GWAS) without a formal framework of hypothesis testing. Our objective was to ...

Abstract

Sex chromosomes are generally excluded from genomic analyses, although X chromosome is the second largest chromosome and harbors many genes. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of X chromosome by identifying its regions associated with reproductive traits in Nelore cows through a ...

Abstract

Background: Body weight (BW) at different ages are of increasing importance in dairy cattle breeding schemes, because of their strong correlation with energy efficiency traits, and their impact on cow health, longevity and farm economy. In total, 15,921 dairy cattle from 56 large-scale test-herds...

Abstract

Introduction: Cattle kidney is an interesting organ because of its individual morphological structure and the mobility of the left kidney. The effects of heat stress on animal yield have been previously researched. However, no data could be obtained during the literature research about the effects...

Abstract

We hypothesized that inoculating the rumen of beef cattle with rumen contents of bison and supplementing with exogenous fibrolytic enzymes (FE) would improve ruminal feed digestibility by enhancing microbiome activity in the rumen. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effects of...
