The reproductive performance of bulls has a major impact on the beef industry, affecting generation intervals, the rate of genetic change, and the amount of product that can be sent to the market. Scrotal circumference evaluated at yearling (SC) is the most recorded reproductive trait in beef cattle, and is used as a major selection criterion to improve precocity and fertility. The char...
Scrotal circumference (SC) is one of the most important reproductive parameters in bulls, which is related to the quanti-qualitative character of semen and is indicative of fertility and the onset of puberty. Thus, genetic studies of this trait may contribute to the understanding of complex aspects of reproductive physiology, shedding light to old questions in this field. Recently, with...
Brazilian bovine cattle is the largest in commercial terms, constituted meanly by indicine breeds, being the biggest meat exporter in the world in volume. Thus, efforts to promote the genetic improvement and development of biotechnologies that facilitate this activity are justified. Populacional genetic parameters and genetic merit estimation through animal model depends of the correct ...
Crossbreeding is a promising strategy to overcome the global challenge of supplying food to over 9 billion people by 2050. Crossbred animals usually combine favorable traits from their purebred ancestors, and in many cases their performance exceeds the parent average. This phenomenon, known as heterosis or 'hybrid vigor', is a genetic dominance effect, best expressed when the parental a...
