    The beef seedstock business is large, and commercial beef producers have many opportunities to purchase bulls that meet the criteria established in their breeding plans. Breed selection and type vary considerably, and this diversity helps keep a strong genetic base in the beef business. Current bull buyer selection tools include visual traits evaluated by the buyer, as well as performance and. The welfare of cow along with profitability in production are important issues in sustainable animal breeding programmes. Along with an intense/intensive selection for increased milk yield, reproductive performance has declined in many countries, in part due to an unfavourable genetic by:

    Beef cattle are raised specifically fro meat that is called beef. The goal of beef cattle production is to select a beef animal that produces a large amount of meat. This goal also must include a quality product, which is a result of a high standard of health care and nutritional program. Dairy cattle are raised specifically for milk.   Multiple synergistic factors affect the development and composition of mammalian gut microbiota, but effects of host genetics remain unclear. To illuminate the role of host genetics on gut Cited by: 2.

    The milk yield varies from species to species. The quantity of milk Holstein Friesian cows produces is greatly more than the quantity of milk White Fulani cows produces. 2. Breeds This is one of the most important factors that affect milk yield. Animals belonging to dairy breeds produce more milk compared to dual purpose breed.   Managing Genetic Defects In Beef Cattle Herds. Drovers. Octo AM These defects can be caused by genetics, environment, or a combination of these two factors. In some cases, the cause of defects can be unknown. These hereditary defects occur in all breeds of cattle, and some are strongly associated with certain breeds.

Milk yield records (one or two in number) were averaged for each cow to obtain average milk yield pex cow. Average milk yield and the cow growth traits were subjected to analyses of variance and covariance to obtain components for estimating heritability and the genetic, phenotypic and environmental correlation coefficients by the half-sib method.

The current database of cattle candidate genes and genetic markers for mammary gland development, milk production traits and resistance or susceptibility to mastitis consists of unique loci.

The project is ongoing and we plan to update the database periodically with further publications. by:   The aims of the study described in the Research Communication were to determine the level of influence of some environmental factors on milk yield and quality traits, including lactose, and lactation length in ewes belonging to three different Italian breeds and to estimate the heritability Cited by: 6.

ISSN Cited by: Reproductive failure is often postulated to be a consequence of the greater negative energy balance associated with the genetic selection for increased milk production.

Factors affecting milk composition In cattle, fat is the most variable component while minerals and lactose are the least variable Milk protein to milk fat ratio ranges from to depending on breed type and other factors Factors contributing to variations in milk.

Milk production declines when environmental temperature exceeds 27 °C. The reduction in milk yield is largely due to drop in feed intake. High temperature affect high producing cows more than low producers and it is particularly harmful during the peak of lactation.

Disease The main disease that affect milk yield of dairy cows is mastitis. Genetic factors affecting milk composition in dairy cows Importance of milk constituents Many studies have been carried out to determine the composition of milk, its nutritional value and many have proved that, despite the negative perception milk receives, there is a wide range of health benefits that are associatedFile Size: KB.

Genetic Selection. Genetic selection relies on identifying traits associated with ERTs and also expected progeny differences (EPDs) that improve animal value, for both breeding potential and production. Selecting sires for a dairy herd, for example, might concentrate on daughter value traits such as milk production.

Excellent reproductive performance in both males and females is fundamental to profitable dairy and beef production systems. In this review we undertook a meta-analysis of genetic parameters for female reproductive performance across 55 dairy studies or populations and 12 beef studies or populations as well as across 28 different studies or populations for male reproductive by: The Angus breed is home to the industry’s largest beef cattle performance database, fueling genetic progress through each generation.

Breeders rely on the comprehensive set of data to continue growing the nation’s quality beef supply. Factors that affect genetic improvement also have influence on the efficiency and profitability of dairy operations. The objective of this study was to characterize factors associated with genetic improvement of dairy cattle for milk production at farm level.

Accumulated day milk yield and pedigree information from 1, first. Beef cattle. Cows: Cows are evaluated on the weight of the weaned calf, in the same manner that dairy cattle are evaluated on milk yield.

In the cow index system used by the Meat and Livestock Commission in UK, the superiority in terms of the calf weight over that of its contemporaries is calculated for each calf of a cow. Factors associated with growth in beef cattle RESULTS 1. The relation of weight at 21 months to weaning weight and post­ weaning liveweight gain Data for this analysis were derived from two sources.

The liveweight measurements made on young bulls bred and reared in the seven pedigree. In developing countries, however, milk yield hovers between and 1, kg annually.

6 In many countries native breeds serve as the base of the dairy herd, and genetic limitations are apparent in those animals. But, more important to explanation of low yields are management and feeding deficiencies that hamper the ability of even those animals with lower genetic potential to express greater Author: Geoffrey E.

Dahl. Abstract. Globally there are approximately 1 billion beef cattle which are raised in both intensive and extensive production systems. Even in intensive production systems, forage usually accounts for more than 80% of the feed, with calves only receiving high grain diets during a 3–4 month finishing period.
