Abstract

This study aimed to determine the trends in milk production, fertility, temperature-humidity index (THI), and herd size in dairy herds from the Laguna region in northern Mexico. Records of 16 dairy herds of Holstein cows from January 2002 to December 2016 were used. Milk production was categorized...

AbstractFull Text

A total of 245187 records of the first three lactations of 131126 Holstein cows in tropical conditions were used to estimate the genetic (co)variance components between age at calving and its respective milk productions. A multivariate analysis of six traits was performed. Heritability for age at...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a disease of cattle that represents a risk to public health and causes severe economic losses to the livestock industry. Recently, genetic studies, like genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have greatly improved the investigation of complex diseases identifying...

Holstein calves (n=767) from a commercial herd were used to determine the effect of birth weight (BW), weaning weight (WW) and preweaning average daily gain (ADG) on subsequent reproductive performance of heifers inseminated with sex-sorted semen in a hot environment (25°N; mean annual temperature...

Abstract

Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) is a complex disease that is associated with infection by bacterial and viral pathogens when cattle fail to adequately respond to stress. The objective of this study was to use gene set enrichment analysis of SNP data (GSEA-SNP) and a network analysis (INGENUITY...

Abstract

In the semi-arid highlands of central Mexico, triticale (× Triticosecale L.) is emerging as an alternative, less water-demanding forage crop than alfalfa for dairy cattle. Studies reported here were aimed at evaluating triticale hay (TH) relative to alfalfa hay (AH) for lactating cow performance,...

The objective was to determine the best nonlinear and linear model to estimate the body weight (BW) of males and females of Holstein (Ho) and Brown Swiss (BS) crossed with Zebu (Z) cattle under two management systems, measuring the thoracic perimeter (TP). 1577 observations of BW and TP...

Abstract

A new device (Chapingo device) to deposit semen at the base of the uterine horns of cattle was developed at Universidad Autonoma Chapingo, Mexico. Nine Holstein heifers were inseminated by transvaginal laparoscopy, using a laparoscope for cattle and the Chapingo device. A dose of sexed semen...

Abstract

Neonate calves are continuously exposed to a wide range of microorganisms in the environment, including diarrhea-causing enteropathogens. Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) was isolated from the oral mucosa of calves, and colostrum and milk from Holstein cows, the strains identified and their resistance to ...

Abstract

In order to estimate the genetic parameters and correlations between total lactation milk yield and growth traits in a multiracial population of dual purpose cattle in tropical environments of Mexico, genetic variances and covariances were estimated between total milk yield during the first (PTL1...
