Can genomics cope with a 30% reduction of methane emission from livestock in 10 years?
Livestock will face an important challenge within the next decade to cope with the objective of cut by 30% methane emissions, as agreed in the COP26. This study summarises the latest genetic parameter estimates between ...
Correlation Between Milk and Blood Urea Nitrogen in High and Low Yielding Dairy Cows
A study was carried out in two dairy farms (Olocuilta and Los Conacastes) in the central region of El Salvador. Sixty Holstein cows were grouped according to milk yield and days in milk: high yielding (HY, 30–90 d in ...
Effect of alternative synchronisation treatments on the vaginal microbiota of ewes and their impact on pregnancy rate
The low pregnancy rate by artificial insemination in sheep represents a fundamental challenge for breeding programmes. In this species, estrous synchronization is done by manipulating hormonal regimens through the insertion ...
Predicting complex traits using microbiome information: A comparison of metagenome distance matrices
The aim of this study was to compare ordination methods for microbiota distance matrices, in order to estimate variance components for complex traits prediction including the microbiome in its estimation. Seven ordination ...
Dry matter intake, methane emissions and microbiome profiles as new traits for feed efficiency
This study estimated the genetic parameters for feed efficiency, dry matter intake, methane production, and ruminal microbiome profile in order to incorporate feed efficiency into the breeding goal. Data consisted of 11,042 ...
