Abstract

Breed differences in milk production and milk quality are related to differences in calf preweaning growth, differences in cow maintenance requirements, and differences in efficiency of production. Cows from Brangus dams and sired by 12 Bonsmara, 12 Brangus, 15 Charolais, 18 Gelbvieh, 13 Hereford,...

Abstract

The genetic diversity of a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) at the exon 20 (T945M) of the leptin receptor gene (LEPR) and of three short tandem repeats (STRs BM7225, BMS694, and BMS2145) linked to LEPR was investigated in three beef cattle herds (Brangus Ibagé, Charolais, and Aberdeen Angus). A ...

Abstract

Milk yield from 158 Brangus cows bred to 6 sire breeds (Bonsmara, Brangus, Charolais, Gelbvieh, Hereford, Romosinuano) was measured for 3 yr to estimate relationships of milk yield of cows and postweaning ADG of their calves on 2 postweaning systems (dry lot or wheat pasture). Milk yield was...

Abstract

Disposition or temperament of cattle is a measure of the animal's relative docility, wildness, and handling ability during processing in the pen as well as in the handling facilities. Easily excitable animals compromise both their own safety and the safety of handlers. The Iowa Tri-County Steer...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to identify the best characteristics of Brangus (n=190) and Charolais (n=73) bulls in vivo. The average initial age was 285.1±3.6 days for Brangus and 314.9±8.9 days for Charolais. The bulls were weighed every 28 days. The scrotal circumference (SC) and hip height...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the rejection rates of bulls in the behavioral assessment (libido and mounting capacity) and the importance of this step in the breeding soundness evaluation of 30,700 beef bulls in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Bulls from the following breeds were...
