AbstractFull Text

Oaxaca is the most biodiverse state in México, represented by its wild species and domestic creole livestock. Two creole cattle populations from two regions of Oaxaca were analyzed (Zimatlan: n=26, Ecatepec: n=34) in order to assess their genetic diversity level and to clarify if they are two...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the genetic diversity of creole cattle in northwestern Mexico using the BoLA-DRB3.2 locus of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC). A total of 56 creole cattle were sampled from five communities; in the state of Chihuahua (Cerocahui, Guadalupe y...

Abstract

Retaining features of the auroch (Bos taurus primigenius), the Lidia bovine is a primitive breed originated ∼250 yr ago in the Iberian Peninsula, where is still distributed, along with France and several American countries. Selected upon a behavior, which enhances their aggressiveness; these...

Abstract

A new device (Chapingo device) to deposit semen at the base of the uterine horns of cattle was developed at Universidad Autonoma Chapingo, Mexico. Nine Holstein heifers were inseminated by transvaginal laparoscopy, using a laparoscope for cattle and the Chapingo device. A dose of sexed semen...

Abstract

Copy number variants (CNVs) are an important source of genomic structural variation, recognized to influence phenotypic variation in many species. Many studies have focused on identifying CNVs within and between human and livestock populations alike, but only few have explored population-genetic...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of season of the year and parity number on conception rate of beef cows from three zebu breeds under the tropical conditions of the southeastern of Mexico. Information of 2064 calving to conception intervals (CCI) from 423 cows calving from 2006 to...

Abstract

In arid and semi-arid zones, animal health and production are closely correlated with body conformation traits. These selected traits, in turn, allow livestock to adapt unfavorable soil and environmental conditions. The primary objective of this study was to perform a genome-wide association...

Abstract

Background: National genetic evaluations for disease resistance do not exist, precluding the genetic improvement of cattle for these traits. We imputed BovineHD genotypes to whole genome sequence for 2703 Holsteins that were cases or controls for Bovine Respiratory Disease and sampled from either...

Abstract

Production and reproduction data of cows with 50 or 75% Holstein genes kept under a dual purpose system in Yucatan, Mexico were analyzed. The work consisted of a retrospective study type using 222 lactations (n=75 cows) located at the center of Yucatán. The traits evaluated were calving interval...
