AbstractFull Text

Latin America accounts for very significant proportions of the world beef production and exports, being a very relevant beef supplier for the increasing food demands. Data presented here focused in the main South American beef producer/exporter countries: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay....

AbstractFull Text

Sensory evaluation is a useful technique applied in the food production chain to ensure its quality. The goal of this study was to evaluate the beef quality based on the sensory traits of steers from eight genotypes: Angus, Angus × Caracu, Brangus, Hereford × Angus, Hereford, Nelore × Angus, Nelore ...

AbstractFull Text

This research aimed at studying the effects of age of the cow at calving (IVP), age of the animal at yearling (IDS), the direct additive genetic (AD) and maternal (AM) effects and individual heterozygosity (HI) on visual scores of conformation (CS), early finishing (PS) and muscling (MS) at...

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 ...

AbstractFull Text

A combination of multiple trait and repeatability models were used to estimate genetic parameters for birth weight (BW), weaning weight (WW), yearling weight (YW), eighteen month weight (FW) and three measurements of mature weight (MW) using 23 768 records obtained from the South African Brangus ...

AbstractFull Text

Direct- and maternal heritabilities were estimated for weight traits in Brangus cattle using random regression models. After editing, 54 924 records, from birth- (BW) to mature weight (MW) from 21 673 animals were selected for analysis. The data, which covered a period of 8 generations (1985 to...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of the study was to investigate some population parameters, including generation interval, inbreeding and effective population size of Brangus cattle in South Africa (SA) to assist in constructing an effective selection programme for the SA Brangus breed. Pedigree analysis can describe the...

AbstractFull Text

In skeletal muscle the calpain system consists of three calcium-activated-protease isoforms m-calpain, μ-calpain and calpain 3 or p94. The calpastatin is the calpain-specific endogenous inhibitor. This system is involved in the remodeling of muscle protein in the living animal and it is widely...

AbstractFull Text

This study was designed to test the effects of polyclonal antibody preparation (PAP) against several rumen bacteria and/or monensin (MON) on feedlot performance, carcass characteristics, fatty acid profile and blood lipoprotein concentrations in yearling bulls. Seventy-two Brangus yearling bulls...
