A comparison of claw conformation and claw horn structure of two sheep breeds, and their relationship to footrot incidence
This study compared claw conformation (length of dorsal border (DB), diagonal length (DL), dorsal angle (DA), heel height (HH), hardness) and claw horn structure (number of horn tubules, diameter of tubules medullary cavity ...
A chromosome-wide QTL study on BTA29 affecting temperament traits in German Angus beef cattle and mapping of DRD4
(Cambridge University Press (CUP): STM Journals, 2011)
The behaviour of beef cattle is important for the safety and welfare of stockmen and animals. Ten microsatellites spanning BTA29 and, in addition, the candidate gene, dopamine receptor D4 gene, were analysed in 545 German ...
Estimation of genetic and crossbreeding parameters for preweaning traits in German Angus and Simmental beef cattle and the reciprocal crosses
(American Society of Animal Science, 2010)
Data from pure breeds, as well as reciprocal crosses of German Angus (GA) and Simmental (SIM) beef cattle, were used to estimate genetic parameters and to evaluate the suitability for crossbreeding in terms of increasing ...
