Abstract

Charolais cattle are one of the most important breeds for meat production worldwide; in México, its selection is mainly made by live weight traits. One strategy for mapping important genomic regions that might influence productive traits is the identification of signatures of selection. This type...

Abstract

Background: The search for gene and marker effects on economically important traits is aimed not only to understanding the genetic architecture of complex traits but also to applying the information to breeding schemes. Objective: To analyze the effect of two temperament-related SNPs (rs109576799...

Abstract

Commercial availability of a generic zilpaterol HCl (ZH) premix preparation for beef cattle in Mexico motivated a non-inferiority trial vs the reference preparation. The trial was conducted on zebu-type cattle (Bos indicus) under humid tropical conditions. Meat production and basic meat quality...

Abstract

Data from 2438 calvings born to 682 cows recorded from 2004 to 2015 in an extensive production system were used, to investigate factors associated with abortion and calf mortality until weaning. Cows belonged to Brahman, Nellore, Guzerat and Brown Swiss × Zebu breed groups. Data were analyzed using ...
