Effect of days fed, carcass grade traits, and subcutaneous fat removal on postmortem muscle characteristics and beef palatability.
TLDR
Taste panel tenderness, amount of perceived connective tissue, and shear force values peaked at 112 d and were slightly less desirable for cattle fed longer than 112 d (quadratic term, P less than .01); postmortem muscle temperature at 2.5 h was the chilling time most highly correlated with tenderness values among untrimmed sides. Expand
Uteroplacental vascular development and placental function: an update.
TLDR
The challenges will be to find biomarkers of abnormal placental angiogenesis and to develop therapeutic strategies to "rescue" placental vascular development and thus fetal growth in compromised pregnancies and animal models will be essential in meeting these challenges. Expand
On the history of cattle genetic resources
TLDR
An account of the history of cattle is given by integrating archaeological record and pictorial or written sources, scarce until 300 years ago, with the recent contributions of DNA analysis. Expand
Influence of milk production potential on forage dry matter intake by multiparous and primiparous Brangus females.
TLDR
It is suggested that multiand primiparous cows consume similar amounts of low-quality forage DM, expressed per unit of BW, during late gestation and lactation, and selecting beef cows for increased genetic merit for milk production increases forage DMI during early lactation. Expand
Effect of exogenous progesterone on prostaglandin F2 alpha release and the interestrous interval in the bovine.
TLDR
Results indicate that administration of exogenous progesterone stimulates an earlier maturation of endometrial development, causing an advanced release of PGF2 alpha which shortens the interestrous interval of the cow. Expand
Improved soybean protein sources for early-weaned pigs: II. Effects on ileal amino acid digestibility.
TLDR
It is suggested that low digestibility of the first-limiting AA, lysine, may limit performance of pigs fed a SBM diet. Expand
Plasma growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor I, and insulin-like growth factor binding proteins in pigs with divergent genetic merit for postweaning average daily gain.
TLDR
Characteristics of growth hormone, IGF-I, and IGF-binding proteins were studied in gilts sampled from lines of pigs selected for either fast or slow postweaning ADG during a period of feed deprivation and again during refeeding. Expand
Working chute behavior of feedlot cattle can be an indication of cattle temperament and beef carcass composition and quality.
TLDR
The relationship between working chute temperament and beef carcass quality traits were measured on 183 crossbred feedlot steers and IGENITY® docility index had a positive correlation with Warner-Bratzler shear force indicating a higher docility Index was loosely associated with tougher meat. Expand
Milk production of crossbred daughters of high- and low-milk EPD Angus and Hereford bulls.
TLDR
Daughters of high-milk EPD sires produced more milk and weaned heavier calves than those of low- milk E PD sires at the expense of body condition. Expand
