Use of group records of feed intake to select for feed efficiency in rabbit
(Journal of Animal Breeding and Genetics, 2019-04-24) Genètica i Millora Animal
Models for genetic evaluation of feed efficiency (FE) for animals housed in groups when they are either fed ad libitum (F) or on restricted (R) feeding were implemented. Definitions of FE on F included ...
Grape seed Proanthocyanidins target the Enteroendocrine system in cafeteria‐diet‐fed rats
(Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, 2019-04-12) Nutrició Animal
Scope The effects on the enteroendocrine system of three different grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) treatments are analyzed in rats on a cafeteria diet for 17 weeks. Methods and results GSPE ...
Inbreeding depression load for litter size in Entrepelado and Retinto Iberian pig varieties
(Journal of Animal Science, 2019-03-14) Genètica i Millora Animal
Individual-specific hidden inbreeding depression load (IDL) can be accounted for in livestock populations by appropriate best linear unbiased prediction approaches. This genetic effect has a recessive ...
Genetic parameters of sow feed efficiency during lactation and its underlying traits in a Duroc population
(animal, 2019-11-25) Genètica i Millora Animal
As a result of the genetic selection for prolificacy and the improvements in the environment and farms management, litter size has increased in the last few years so that energy requirements of the ...
Detection of homozygous genotypes for a putatively lethal recessive mutation in the porcine argininosuccinate synthase 1 (ASS1) gene
(Animal Genetics, 2019-11-15) Genètica i Millora Animal
The sequencing of the pig genome revealed the existence of homozygous individuals for a nonsense mutation in the argininosuccinate synthase 1 (ASS1) gene (rs81212146, c.944T>A, L315X). Paradoxically, ...
Farm-specific failure costs of production disorders in European organic dairy herds
(Preventive Veterinary Medicine, 2019-04-04) Benestar Animal
On-farm decision support in animal health management requires a tailor-made failure costs (FCs) assessment of production disorders for the individual farm. In our study we defined a generic framework ...
