Effects of breed proportion and components of heterosis for semen traits in a composite cattle breed
The aim of this study was to estimate the non-additive genetic effects of the dominance component of heterosis as well as epistatic loss on semen traits in admixed Swiss Fleckvieh, a composite of Simmental (SI) and Red ...
Nitrogen‐, water‐ and radiation‐use efficiencies affected by sugarcane breeding in Argentina
This study aimed to identify whether and how sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) breeding in Argentina modified nitrogen‐use efficiency (NUE), water‐use efficiency (WUE) and radiation‐use efficiency (RUE). Thirteen varieties were ...
Genomic predictions for crossbred dairy cattle
Genomic evaluations are useful for crossbred as well as purebred populations when selection is applied to commercial herds. Dairy farmers had already spent more than $1 million to genotype over 32,000 crossbred animals ...
Overlapping haplotype blocks indicate shared genomic regions between a composite beef cattle breed and its founder breeds
The Canchim composite breed was developed in Brazil combining the attributes of adaptation to the tropical environment of the Nelore breed with the growth performance of the Charolais breed. We aimed to identify overlapping ...
