Abstract

Charolais cattle are one of the most important breeds for meat production worldwide; in México, its selection is mainly made by live weight traits. One strategy for mapping important genomic regions that might influence productive traits is the identification of signatures of selection. This type...

AbstractFull Text

In recent years, after the emergence of the concept "race", pressure was generated in the selection process. However, in this desire to improve, it was possible to increase the production but the preservation of the global genetic diversity was affected. These changes caused great economic pressure ...

Abstract

The hereditary autosomal recessive disorders bovine citrullinemia (BC), bovine leukocyte adhesion deficiency (BLAD), factor XI deficiency (FXID), and complex vertebral malformation (CVM) have affected dairy cattle breeding significantly around the world. This study examined the carrier frequency of ...

Abstract

Genetic trends are commonly used to verify genetic improvement; however, there are few reports on beef cattle in Mexico. Data from 1998 to 2013 from four Charolais bull breeding farms were examined to verify the genetic responses to different breeding management and selection criteria. Analysis...

Abstract

Polymorphisms in candidate genes can produce significant and favorable changes in the phenotype, and therefore are useful for the identification of the best combination of favorable variants for marker-assisted selection. In the present study, an assessment to evaluate the effect of 11 single...

Abstract

Background: A concern for breeders is whether an animal ranking based on genetic evaluations is similar to that obtained from show-ring judging. Objective: to determine the association between rankings for Braunvieh (BR) and Brown Swiss (BS) cattle of Mexico based on show-ring judging and their...

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

The purpose of this study was to examine the genetic variability of the Mexican Simmental. Inbreeding was calculated by year for animals born from 1985 to 2014. Proportion of ancestors known, average equivalent complete generations, generation interval, and effective size, as well as the effective...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate genetic diversity of seven Mexican beef cattle populations, using pedigree analyses. The analyses were carried out with the Endog software, using information of the registered animals on national herd-book of each breed. The size of the populations...
