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

The purpose of this study was to examine the genetic variability of the Mexican Simmental. Inbreeding was calculated by year for animals born from 1985 to 2014. Proportion of ancestors known, average equivalent complete generations, generation interval, and effective size, as well as the effective...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the effects of a methodology for the climatic season classification that traditionally had been used as birth season (BS) in statistical assessments. This methodology bases in an aridity index (AI) to classify BS using meteorological historic information....

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 ...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis is a chronic inflammatory disease that causes granuloma formation. Characterization of granulomatous lesions of Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) experimentally infected cattle has helped to better understand the pathogenesis of this disease. However, few studies have described...
