Abstract

Genetic trends are commonly used to verify genetic improvement; however, there are few reports on beef cattle in Mexico. Data from 1998 to 2013 from four Charolais bull breeding farms were examined to verify the genetic responses to different breeding management and selection criteria. Analysis...

Abstract

Polymorphisms in candidate genes can produce significant and favorable changes in the phenotype, and therefore are useful for the identification of the best combination of favorable variants for marker-assisted selection. In the present study, an assessment to evaluate the effect of 11 single...

Abstract

Genealogical information is an essential tool for carrying out any genetic improvement program. The objective of this study was to determine the accuracy of pedigree information in the Mexican registered Holstein population using genomic data available in Mexico and for the US Holstein population....

Abstract

Copy number variants (CNVs) are an important source of genomic structural variation, recognized to influence phenotypic variation in many species. Many studies have focused on identifying CNVs within and between human and livestock populations alike, but only few have explored population-genetic...

Abstract

For Mexico, the units of agricultural and forestry production is the main land use in the country, covering 57.3% of the country. In this regard, the state of Nuevo Leon, has a surface density which amounts to little more than 5.5 million hectares, representing 86% of the state, with an inventory...

Abstract

The effect of six genotypes (Zebu=Z, European Brown Swiss=EBS, Holstein=H, Z × EBS, Zebu × American Brown Swiss=ABS, Z × ABS, Z × H) on carcass and meat characteristics of young bullocks finished under feedlot conditions was tested. The Z × ABS bullocks had the highest (P=0.001) average daily gain. ...

Abstract

Records of beef cows from a ranch in southern Mexico gave 1967 birth weights (BW), 1587 weaning weights adjusted to 210 days of age (AWW) and 2001 calving intervals (CI) for the comparison of the breed groups: Brahman (BR), Guzerat (GU), Nellore (NE) and crosses born to zebu dams by Brown Swiss...

Abstract

Breeding records, including 649 inseminations during fall and winter at a dairy farm in a subtropical area of Western Mexico (24°N; 24°C, mean annual temperature 24°C) were analyzed to document effects of sex-sorted semen from commercial Gyr bulls, estrus synchronization protocol, inseminator, sire ...

Abstract

Pedigree analysis is an important tool to describe the genetic variability and its evolution through generations. The objective was to estimate genetic distances and to analyze the possible genetic differentiation through Mexican fighting bull herds. The pedigree including 58826 animals from 110...
