Ivermectin (IVM) is widely used for parasite control in livestock in the tropics. Residual IVM in feces conserves its insecticide activity for weeks and can harm dung beetle (DB) species. Attraction to the feces of IVM-treated cattle was tested using the DB species Onthophagus landolti (Harold) and ...

A total of 245187 records of the first three lactations of 131126 Holstein cows in tropical conditions were used to estimate the genetic (co)variance components between age at calving and its respective milk productions. A multivariate analysis of six traits was performed. Heritability for age at...

Abstract

Recipient cow is the key to success in embryo transfer (ET) programs in cattle. Therefore, it is necessary to know the factors that influence on its reproductive potential. It is considered that multiparous cows have a better response to the ET program than nulliparous cows. The objective of this...

Abstract

Intensive silvopastoral systems (ISS) are a sustainable alternative to monoculture systems (MS). The presence of trees and legumes improves animal welfare due to the increased food quality and quantity and the presence of shade while providing a variety of environmental services. As cattle...

Abstract

The impacts of leucaena (Leucaena leucocephala) feeding systems on cattle production, environmental services and animal welfare in Mexico are discussed. A total of about 12,000 ha of leucaena have been established in the tropical regions of México, where most of the information for the current...

Abstract

Agrosilvopastoral systems that integrate crops, pastures, trees and shrubs are seen as a way forward to meet future needs for food, feed, fuel, and other products, as well as for providing environmental and social benefits. Cattle production systems in the tropical and subtropical areas of Mexico...

Abstract

Dung beetles provide different services to agroecosystems. Previous economic assessment of this insect group highlights their importance in temperate zones using linear models or ecosystem services frameworks. This paper proposes a stochastic-dynamic model to simulate dung production and...

Abstract

Livestock production in Latin America is strongly associated with deforestation. Silvopastoral systems are an alternative; however, the relation between animal welfare and tree coverage has been poorly studied. We hypothesized that a connection between these features exist and that its evaluation...
