Abstract

Using the Piemontese breed as a case study, we characterised beef production systems within the EU classification, and investigated their effects on carcass and meat quality traits. The research involved 1,327 young bulls fattened on 115 farms. The production systems identified by hierarchical...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between age (Age; 24.2±8.7 days) and BW (61.0±8.2 kg) of Brown Swiss male calves (n=6826) sold at auction between 2003 and 2007. Animals were progeny of 330 sires mated to 6826 heifers. Preliminary least-squares analysis showed that herd of...

Abstract

Performance testing is the main method of selection used for Marchigiana, Chianina and Romagnola breed since 1985. The young bulls are tested in a common central station for 6 months period, starting from the age of about 6 months. The bull selection is carried out accounting for genetic indexes of ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the performance of Bayesian models commonly used for genomic selection to predict "difficult-to-predict" dairy traits, such as milk fatty acid (FA) expressed as percentage of total fatty acids, and technological properties, such as fresh cheese yield and protein...

Abstract

We examined the latent structure of 26 cheese related phenotypes in dairy cattle. Traits related to milk yield and quality (8 traits), milk protein fractions (8 traits), coagulation and curd firmness indicators (CF, 5 traits) and cheese-making phenotypes (cheese yields (%CY) and nutrient recoveries ...

Abstract

Ruminants (and milk production) contribute to global climate change through enteric methane emissions (EME), and any attempt to reduce them is complicated by the fact that they are difficult and expensive to measure directly. In the case of dairy cows, a promising indirect method of estimating EME...

Abstract

Mitigating the dairy chain's contribution to climate change requires cheap, rapid methods of predicting enteric CH4 emissions (EME) of dairy cows in the field. Such methods may also be useful for genetically improving cows to reduce EME. Our objective was to evaluate different procedures for...

Abstract

Three sample preparation procedures for producing a solution of fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) from the liver, subcutaneous fat and muscle of 9 bulls were compared. Fat was extracted from fresh samples using solvents under ambient (Folch) or high temperature and pressure (ASE) conditions. As an...

Abstract

Garlic and garlic components have recently been proposed as ruminal activity modulators to reduce the enteric methane emissions of ruminants, but little is known of their influence on milk coagulation properties, nutrient recovery, cheese yield, and sensorial and rheological characteristics of milk ...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to compare milk coagulation properties measured through a traditional mechanical device, the Formagraph (FRM; Foss Electric A/S, Hillerød, Denmark), and a near-infrared optical device, the Optigraph (OPT; Ysebaert SA, Frépillon, France). Individual milk samples of...
