AbstractFull Text

Brazilian beef cattle industry was built mainly through two imported components: zebu cattle from the Indian subcontinent and tropical grasses from Africa. They interacted positively and with the local climate, soils and management. The last 50 years has shown an unprecedented growth in the cattle...

AbstractFull Text

A bio-economic model was built to derive economic values for heifer pregnancy, stayability, mature weight and 450-day weight as selection traits in Nellore beef cattle. Differences in the basic genetic levels of the herd in the considered traits were simulated, as well as differences in the female...

AbstractFull Text

Generic equations were derived using probability and transition matrices to track the flow of genes originating from a purebred or crossbred mating. Cumulative discounted expressions (CDE) were calculated for annual, replacement heifer, cull cow, birth, yearling, and slaughter traits using input...

Abstract

This paper presents the development of low-cost feed mixture to supplement the diet of dairy cattle during the dry season in Brazil. Results of trials indicate that the feed based on sugarcane and urea promotes weight gain and increase in milk production. The feeding system requires neither a great ...
