Abstract

The genetic parameters for Brahman cattle under the tropical conditions of Mexico are scarce. Therefore, heritabilities, additive direct and maternal correlations, and genetic correlations for birth weight (BW) and 205 days adjusted weaning weight (WW205) were estimated in four Brahman cattle herds ...

Abstract

Crossbreeding effects were evaluated in three dual purpose bovine sub-populations in the tropics, and 5,040 lactations, 4,429 birth weights and adjusted weights at 205 [3,878], 365 [3,017] and 540 [2,276] days (PN, P205, P365 y P540, respectively) from Zebu cattle (CE) and its crosses with Holstein ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of season of the year and parity number on conception rate of beef cows from three zebu breeds under the tropical conditions of the southeastern of Mexico. Information of 2064 calving to conception intervals (CCI) from 423 cows calving from 2006 to...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to estimate genetic parameters for growth traits in Mexican Nellore cattle. A univariate animal model was used to estimate (co)variance components and genetic parameters. The traits evaluated were birth weight (BW), weaning weight (WW), and yearling weight (YW). Models...

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

The effect of age at first calving (AFC) and breed type (BG) on cow length of productive life in the herd (LPL) and cumulative kilograms of calves weaned per cow (KWC) was studied. Data on 313 Brahman, 183 Nellore, and 269 crossbred cows (undefined crosses of European × Zebu cattle) born from 1986...

Abstract

The cattle production systems in the tropics need a population of cattle resistant to the limiting conditions imposed by the tropical environment, but with capacity to respond in term of production when such limiting conditions are reduced by man, in order to make the system sustainable. In this...
