AbstractFull Text

Several studies conducted in the Limousine breed since the last 25 years lead to the definition of two selection criteria for beef cattle temperament: a temperament score given by the technician scoring type traits at weaning (COMP) and the number of movements during weighing at weaning (REAC)....

Abstract

Feet and leg conformation scores are important traits in beef cattle because they encompass a wide range of locomotion disorders that can lead to productive and reproductive losses. Thus, the study of feet and legs in beef cattle is essential for evaluating possible responses to selection focusing...
