AbstractFull Text

The aim was to assess differences among Brown Swiss (BS), Holstein (HO), BS × HO and HO × BS cows. Age (AFC) and weight at first calving (WFC) were analyzed with a simple model that included sire within breed group (SIRE) as a random effect, and breed group (BG), calving year (CY) and calving...

Abstract

In arid and semi-arid zones, animal health and production are closely correlated with body conformation traits. These selected traits, in turn, allow livestock to adapt unfavorable soil and environmental conditions. The primary objective of this study was to perform a genome-wide association...

Abstract

Soybean oil is rich in linoleic acid, and - in addition to the contribution of major linolenic acid in fodder - can improve the production of unsaturated fatty acids (AG) in the milk of grazing cows. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of adding soybean oil (0, 3 and 6% BS) in...

Abstract

Background: This work studied the natural infection of Neospora caninum during the first gestation of heifers in a dairy farm in animals consuming a ration contaminated naturally with Zearalenone (ZEA), and to find out effect of mycotoxin in the levels of estrogen (E) and progesterone (P4) and...

Abstract

Background: National genetic evaluations for disease resistance do not exist, precluding the genetic improvement of cattle for these traits. We imputed BovineHD genotypes to whole genome sequence for 2703 Holsteins that were cases or controls for Bovine Respiratory Disease and sampled from either...

AbstractFull Text

The impact of technology adoption among farmers in developing countries has been an issue difficult to measure and interpret. Hence, research to improve production has been centered in technology that possible is not adequate for this region. The present review aims to utilize subjects such as...

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

The objectives were to estimate variance components, and direct (h2) and maternal (m2) heritability in the growth of Tropicarne cattle based on a random regression model using B-Splines for random effects modeling. Information from 12 890 monthly weightings of 1787 calves, from birth to 24 months...

Abstract

The purpose of this work was to estimate the prevalence of the Translocation 1;29 (t rob 1;29) in cattle herds in the Mexican state of Zacatecas. Blood samples were obtained from 661 bovines of eight breeds: Holstein (n=284), American Swiss (n=213), Braunvieh (n=69), Simmental (n=13), Angus (n=5),...
