Abstract

Inbreeding depression is a growing concern in livestock because it can detrimentally affect animal fitness, health, and production levels. Genomic information can be used to more effectively capture variance in Mendelian sampling, thereby enabling more accurate estimation of inbreeding, but further ...

Abstract

Resistance to β-lactam antibiotics, including third-generation cephalosporins, is of major concern for animal and human health. In this study, extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)/plasmid-mediated AmpC (pAmpC) β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli isolates from German livestock farms were...

Exposure of livestock to high heat loads negatively affects animal productivity. In dairy cattle genetic selection to improve tolerance to heat stress (HS) through quantitative approaches has made use of milk production records together with meteorological information for the test date. The main...

Abstract

With focus on the farm animal embryo, a short overview is given about my research activities over the last 35 years. These activities have been described in five circles, covering different key aspects of my work. The first circle included studies on the basic biology related to oocyte maturation...

AbstractFull Text

Livestock production is vital to the world economy. However, intensive animal production is known to require large inputs of raw materials and energy, whilst producing greater amounts and concentration of waste material than do the traditional methods of production. Although the wastes, in the form ...

Abstract

On-farm scoring of behavioural indicators of animal welfare is challenging but the increasing availability of low cost technology now makes automated monitoring of animal behaviour feasible. We discuss some of the issues with using automated methods to measure animal behaviour within the context of ...

Abstract

Performance testing provides the indispensable precondition for breeders to improve economically important traits in livestock. This is true for breeding schemes based on the quantitative genetic model as well as for achieving information on the molecular genetic level for utilizing marker assisted ...
