Abstract

The European Community's leukosis key (EC key) is a well-known hematologic method for detecting bovine leukemia virus (BLV) infection in dairy cattle. The key identifies infected cattle with persistent lymphocytosis via a combination of lymphocyte count (LC) and age. Using the EC key to identify...

Abstract

Accelerometers have been used to record many cattle postures and behaviours including standing, lying, walking, grazing and ruminating but not cattle drinking behaviour. This study explores whether neck-mounted triaxial accelerometers can identify drinking and whether head-neck position and...

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...

Abstract

Background: Aurochs (Bos primigenius) were distributed throughout large parts of Eurasia and Northern Africa during the late Pleistocene and the early Holocene, and all modern cattle are derived from the aurochs. Although the mtDNA haplogroups of most modern cattle belong to haplogroups T and I,...

Abstract

Adipocyte differentiation-associated long noncoding RNA (ADNCR) is a newly discovered lncRNA. It plays function by targeting miR-204 to significantly regulates the expression of the target SIRT1 gene in preadipocytes both at the level of mRNA and protein, thereby inhibiting adipogenesis. The...

Abstract

Charolais cattle are one of the most important breeds for meat production worldwide; in México, its selection is mainly made by live weight traits. One strategy for mapping important genomic regions that might influence productive traits is the identification of signatures of selection. This type...

Abstract

Displacement of abomasum (DA) is one of the most common and important disorders in dairy cattle. The objective of the present study was to detect the quantitative trait loci (QTL) for DA in Chinese Holstein using single-step genomic BLUP methodology. A total of 60,556 producer-recorded DA event...

Abstract

Background: Urine concentration (UC) provides clinically useful information concerning hydration status and renal function of animals. Objectives: To characterize the clinical performance of urine specific gravity measured by optical refractometry (USG-R) or Multistix-SG urine reagent dipstick (U...

Abstract

Defensins especially β-defensins participate in innate immunity to prevent microbial infection of female reproductive system, one of the most important problems in mammal species. So, the purpose of this study was to investigate the presence of polymorphism in β-defensin gene (C/T: position 2239)...

Abstract

Recent studies have demonstrated that Linear mixed model (LMM) successfully correct for population structure and genetic relatedness in genome-wide association studies (GWAS). However, currently available LMM methods usually suffer from computational inefficiency. Here, we propose a novel method,...
