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

This study presents the optimized hydrothermal gasification (HTG) and hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of Cattle Manure (CM) and Cattle Feed (Canola Stalks) for hydrogen-rich gas, bio-oil and porous carbonaceous catalyst support production as a potential procedure to handle cattle wastes and...

AbstractFull Text

Estimation of animal weight is critical in cattle production to assist in herd management and to estimate the value chain prices of the animals. There is a lack of tools for small-scale farmers and stakeholders to readily estimate cattle weight in communal livestock farming systems in South Africa. ...

Abstract

Five different techniques of estimating the live cattle body weight were evaluated with the objective to identify the most reliable technique for use in the field. Weighbridge was used as the reference for other techniques. The measurement techniques evaluated were Weighbridge, Weigh tape, Rondo...

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

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...

Abstract

Inheritance of fertility traits in cattle is complex since they are controlled by multiple loci. Genome-wide association studies are an efficient tool to detect genomic regions that explain the phenotypic variation for a trait of interest. The aim of this study was to identify genomic regions that...

Abstract

Leptospirosis is a zoonotic bacterial disease reported worldwide. In Uganda, seropositivity has been reported in both humans and domesticated animals, including cattle. However, it remains unknown whether cattle are shedding leptospires and thus acting as potential source for human leptospirosis....

Abstract

There are various methods to perform castration of cattle, but surgical castration is the most common. Although it is well documented that surgical procedures inflict pain, analgesic use is usually omitted for surgical castration of production animals in Australia. This study compares the...
