Leptospirosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Leptospira spp. In goats, the productive impact of leptospirosis is not well known and totally unknown in Santa Catarina (SC), Brazil. This study aimed to investigate leptospirosis seroprevalence and its risk factors in goats in the west side of SC. A total of 654 blood samples were analyzed(More)
Distributed software development presents several characteristics that differentiate from co-located software development. Currently, one of the main difficulties imposed by geographically distributed software teams is the requirements engineering process. Traditional approaches to requirements process don’t cover the fundamental difficulties of dispersion,(More)
The objective of the present study was to evaluate the meat quality and fatty acid (FA) profile of the muscle and subcutaneous fat of young bulls fed ground soybean grain (SB) or rumen protected fat (RPF) with (230 mg head(-1) day(-1)) or without monensin. Forty animals with an initial weight of 359 kg were allotted in a 2×2 factorial arrangement of(More)
Requirements specification is an important phase of the requirements engineering area in the software development process. In geographically distributed environments, this phase becomes critical due to the characteristics of the distributed development (physical and temporal distance, cultural differences, trust, communication, etc). The objective of this(More)
Multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency (MADD) is a mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation disorder caused by mutations that affect electron transfer flavoprotein (ETF) or ETF:ubiquinone oxidoreductase (ETF-QO) or even due to unidentified disturbances of riboflavin metabolism. Besides all the available data on the molecular basis of FAO disorders, including(More)
Lice infestations are commonly seen in buffaloes, causing damage directly to the animal, i.e., itching, skin lesions, and anemia. In addition, these insects can also be vectors for infectious diseases. The present study describes an outbreak of lice in buffaloes as well as evidence for Haematopinus tuberculatus acting as a vector of anaplasmosis. Lice and(More)
Resumo. A distribuição das equipes de desenvolvimento tem provocado diversos desafios ao processo de software. Dentre os desafios, a engenharia de requisitos destaca-se, sofrendo impacto de fatores como distância, diferença de cultura e fuso-horário, bem como dos meios de comunicação disponíveis. Nesse contexto, o gerenciamento das informações relacionadas(More)
The effect of organic acids and mannanoligosaccharide addition to the diet was assessed in pigs orally inoculated with Salmonella typhimurium. Forty-six growers were distributed among four treatments: Basal Diet (BD); BD+encapsulated organic acids; BD+free organic acids; BD+mannanoligosaccharide. Seroconversion was monitored, and feces and tissue samples(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate alternative molting protocols assessing hen welfare and performance during and after molt. Hyline W-36 pullets were housed at 15 wk of age, and their egg production was obtained during this first cycle. When birds were 80 wk, the following molting treatments were applied: a conventional molt consisting of 10 d of(More)
Resumo. Existe um interesse crescente em pesquisas que enderecem o desenvolvimento distribuído de software. A engenharia de requisitos, nesse contexto, apresenta diversos desafios causados pela distribuição. A necessidade de um processo de requisitos que aborde essas dificuldades é reconhecida. Nesse sentido, esse artigo visa apresentar um modelo de(More)
