Abstract

Visual assessment in the milking parlour is a commonly used method to determine the prevalence and severity of bovine digital dermatitis (BDD). It is generally suggested that cows' feet are washed prior to examination to maximise the sensitivity of the assessment, but concern has been expressed...

Abstract

This study was carried out to determine the occurrence and characteristics of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) and Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) strains in cow's milk, cheese and dairy cattle farm environments, and to estimate distribution of antimicrobial resistance. A collection of ...

Abstract

Genetic evaluation of female fertility in Danish, Finnish, and Swedish dairy cows was updated in 2015 to multiple-trait animal model evaluation, where heifer and cow fertility up to third parity are considered as separate traits. A model for conception rate was also developed, which required...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to estimate genetic parameters for different precocious calving criteria and their relationship with reproductive, growth, carcass and feed efficiency in Nellore cattle using the single-step genomic BLUP. The reproductive traits used were probability of precocious calving...

Abstract

Genotype by environment interaction (G × E) effects for lactating cows' fertility traits may differ with lactation number when accounting for herd production level. Our objective here was to investigate the genetic correlations among three fertility traits in cows and lactation persistency within...

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,...

Abstract

Panting syndrome and respiratory infection have been recorded in complicated cases of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in cattle. However, investigations on the causative agents of respiratory disease in such cases are scarce. In this study, 30 animals (13 buffalo and 17 cattle) suffering from...

Abstract

A portable ion-selective electrode (ISE) meter (LAQUAtwin B-722; Horiba Instruments Inc., Irvine, CA) is available for measuring the sodium ion concentration ([Na]) in biological fluids. The objective of this study was to characterize the analytical performance of the ISE meter in measuring [Na] in ...

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....
