Abstract

Water is the most important nutrient in animal nutrition; however, water intake is rarely measured. The objective of this study was to determine whether previously published water intake (WI) equations for beef cattle would accurately predict WI from four experiments conducted under tropical...

Abstract

Leishmaniasis is considered a parasitic disease that still causes serious consequences for mankind, because it presents a high mortality rate worldwide. Considered multi-hosts, the parasites of the genus Leishmania are able of infecting a wide variety of animal species. The dog was considered the...

Abstract

There are few studies on the genetic diversity of Anaplasma marginale in Brazilian cattle herds, especially about beef cattle. The objective of this study was to evaluate the genetic diversity of A. marginale, based on the msp1α gene in Bos taurus indicus sampled from the Brazilian Pantanal....

Abstract

The objective was to estimate genetic correlations between body weight (BW), scrotal circumference and visual evaluation scores of body conformation measured at standard ages in Guzerat cattle. All measurements were performed at 205 (weaning age), 365, 450 and 550 days of age; for BW, two...

Abstract

Advances in the molecular area of selection have expanded knowledge of the genetic architecture of complex traits through genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Several GWAS have been performed so far, but confirming these results is not always possible due to several factors, including...

Abstract

Babesia bovis is the etiological agent of bovine babesiosis, a disease transmitted by Rhipicephalus microplus, which affects cattle herds in tropical and subtropical regions of the world, causing significant economic losses due to decreasing meat and milk yield. This study used molecular techniques ...

Abstract

Improving reproductive indexes is of extreme importance in beef cattle production systems, as well as investigating new methodologies and traits in order to increase genetic gains for reproduction. Reproductive efficiency directly affects the profitability and productivity of herds, being an...

Abstract

The trade of buffalo meat is very limited in Brazil, where it is still considered exotic, and ∼90% of it is marketed as cattle meat. The present study compared qualitative characteristics of the longissimus muscle from buffalo and cattle. Eighty uncastrated male bovids (40 Mediterranean × Murrah...

Abstract

In Brazil, recent studies have reported viruses detected in ticks with pathogenic potential in vertebrate hosts. Ticks of the species Rhipicephalus microplus collected from bovines in a savannah area were tested by RT-PCR for the presence of RNA targetting a segment of NS3-like protein gene of ...
