Abstract

The measurement of the respiration rate (RR) in cattle is a valuable tool for monitoring health status. Thus, an RR sensor can be essential for stress detection, especially heat stress. Heat stress leads to a deviation of the normal RR and results in a decrease of milk production and fertility....

Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of three methods of oral selenium-enriched yeast (Se-yeast) supplementation on the blood characteristics and growth of Holstein dairy calves. The three methods were: (1) maternal (dams supplemented with 0.3 mg Se per kg of dietary DM during...

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

Ceruloplasmin (Cp) plays an important role in copper transport and iron metabolism, as well as Cp is also an indicator for the health status of dairy cows. The present study reports the validation of an automated assay to assess the plasma Cp in dairy cows. Plasma Cp levels were determined in 40...

Abstract

Mycoplasma mastitis is a dairy herd health problem with growing concern in Japan. To complement the lack of epidemiological knowledge of the disease, we conducted estimation of herd-level prevalence and risk factor analysis for Mycoplasma bovis (M. bovis) mastitis using data collected from Tokachi...

Abstract

Background: Availability of whole-genome sequence data for a large number of cattle and efficient imputation methodologies open a new opportunity to include rare and low-frequency variants (RLFV) in genomic prediction in dairy cattle. The objective of this study was to examine the impact of...

Abstract

Inbreeding depression is a growing concern in livestock because it can detrimentally affect animal fitness, health, and production levels. Genomic information can be used to more effectively capture variance in Mendelian sampling, thereby enabling more accurate estimation of inbreeding, but further ...
