Abstract

Dung beetles provide different services to agroecosystems. Previous economic assessment of this insect group highlights their importance in temperate zones using linear models or ecosystem services frameworks. This paper proposes a stochastic-dynamic model to simulate dung production and...

Abstract

Livestock production in Latin America is strongly associated with deforestation. Silvopastoral systems are an alternative; however, the relation between animal welfare and tree coverage has been poorly studied. We hypothesized that a connection between these features exist and that its evaluation...

Abstract

The dual-purpose bovine system represents 98.4% of the bovine livestock of Veracruz, the main cattle-producing state of Mexico. This system supplies calves to meat companies, a sector in which Veracruz has been the national leader in the last decade. The objective of the present study was to...

Abstract

Small-scale dairy systems (SSDS) in Mexico represent over 78% of dairy farms and 37% of milk production. In the central highlands, many SSDS base the feeding of herds on irrigated cultivated pastures (mostly cut-and-carry), straws, and large amounts of commercial concentrates that result in high...

Abstract

Inadequate nutrient intake during late gestation can cause cow bodyweight (BW) loss and influence cow reproductive performance and subsequent productivity of steer progeny. Therefore, a 7-year study with a 3×3 arrangement of treatments was conducted at Corona Range and Livestock Research Centre,...

Abstract

In Mexico beef cattle production under double purpose systems is the main economic activity in rural areas. This activity has been developed for decades in the south of México State, without any technical assistance. The productive chain of beef production has a weak links between the different...

Abstract

Overgrazing in the rangelands of Sonora manifests itself in the diminishing desirable forage species and the increase in the undesirable plants, some of them toxic. The present study estimates the economic impact of toxic plants on cattle productivity in Sonora. The study arrives at a conservative...

Abstract

Short- and medium-term constraints in beef and milk production in Mexico were analysed, as well as some biological and economic characteristics and advantages of dual purpose cattle production systems (DPS) in the Mexican tropics. Available resources, such as soil, water, forages, cheap byproduct...

Abstract

This study was created at Carbó, Sonora, México, during 2006 to determine calf production strategies evaluating: (1) Early weaning (EW), (2) Creep feeding (CF) and (3) Control (C), and to analyze benefice-cost and their profitability. Sixty animals were randomly selected from a 5 year old Charbray...

Abstract

The primary goal of this study was to identify the principal factors that define the type, number, and performance of production components found in home gardens in Yaxcabá, a Mayan community in the state of Yucatan, Mexico. Participant observation was used to obtain most of the data reported in...
