Abstract

The article presents the technology of beef cattle breeding in the United States. It is characterized by two main stages of production: the first is the production of calves, the second-fattening. There are three possible stages in the sale of young animals not intended for breeding: the first...

Abstract

Our goal was to define a breeding objective for Brangus beef cattle in Brazil. Bioeconomic models were produced and used to estimate economic values (EVs). The scenarios simulated were typical full-cycle beef production systems that are used in tropical and subtropical regions. The breeding...

AbstractFull Text

The objectives of the assay were to evaluate the influence of the feeding system (natural grassland vs cultivated pasture) and the approximate age (estimated by number of permanent teeths) on the production of two types of steers (Braford and Brangus), through variables evaluated in vivo previous...

Abstract

The objective of this work was to estimate the genetic parameters and genetic trends for growth traits and scrotal circumference of Brangus cattle. Data on 6,340 animals, raised in five farms in the South, Southern, and Midwestern regions of Brazil, were used for the evaluation of: yearling scrotal ...

In the tropical environments the use of Bos indicus × Bos taurus cattle is an efficient tool to improve the production index in farms. Among different factors, weather affects production efficiency. Corrientes Province has a subtropical climate that restricts the development of cattle production....

Abstract

The objective of this work was to estimate genetic parameters, and genetic and phenotypic trends of a Brangus breed population. Weight, scrotal circumference, and visual scores of conformation, precocity, musculature, and navel, adjusted to 550 days of age, were evaluated from records of 6,789...

Abstract

This chapter presents data regarding the performance of beef cattle breeds using BREEDPLAN, a genetic evaluation system for beef cattle breeders, instead of the National Beef Recording and Improvement Scheme in South Africa. The description and performance traits (herds and females in society,...

Abstract

This study aimed to analyze the reproductive performance of Brangus beef cattle raised for reproduction by using calving interval, calving to conception interval and pregnancy rate data from primiparous and pluriparous animals for the months of August, September and October of the breeding seasons...

Abstract

This piece of work aimed at assessing the use of a progesterone intravaginal device (DP4) which contained 0.558 g in comparison with the use of another progesterone intravaginal device that contained 1.9 g and which had been previously used along 9 days. It studied how it affected pregnancy rates...

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,...
