INTRODUCTION. The sustainable development of animal agriculture, across the many different ecoregions or agroecological zones that are found in the developing countries, poses many fundamental challenges; challenges to the primary users of livestock, to their extension, research and support.

(b) The production response. Global livestock production has increased substantially since the s. Beef production has more than doubled, while over the same time chicken meat production has increased by a factor of nea made up of increases in both number of animals and productivity (figure 1).Carcass weights increased by about 30 per cent for both chicken and beef cattle Cited by: A total of SNP markers were used to conduct an association analysis for the 5 growth traits and SC.

The basic descriptive statistics for all significant SNP marker effect were summarized in Table numbers of significant (p Cited by: ABSTRACT: National beef cattle genetic evaluation programs have evolved in the United States over the last 35 yr to create important tools that are part of sustain-able breeding programs.

Weaning weights from 83 Limousin calves born between and in France and the Trans-Tasman block (Australia/New Zealand) were analysed to compare different strategies for running an international genetic evaluation for the breed.

These records were a subset of the complete data for both countries and comprised a sample of herds that had recorded progeny of sires used Cited by: 6. The international evaluation strategies were a) an animal model on raw performance data with non unity genetic correlations and heterogeneous residual and genetic variances across countries; b) the same animal model applied to pre-corrected (for fixed effects) performance data; and c) a sire model on de-regressed proofs (MACE).Cited by: 6.

The Limousin breed has been developing in several countries for the last four decades, but the genetic evaluation of seed stock is usually performed within country. Increasingly, breeders are seeking to compare domestic and foreign seed stock in order to enlarge the choice of animals that best t their own selection by: 6.

strategies in beef production systems tend to be poorer, especially in com-mercial populations. Sire recording is also generally poor in many beef production systems especially where multi-sire mating is practiced. Lower-margin business model Development of a.

Continental Argentina is 2, km 2, with large areas recognized as naturally suitable for extensive beef cattle are produced in all of continental Argentina (latitudes 21°48′ to 50°01′ S) through very diverse ecological regions with huge differences in climate, soils, and by: National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium (NBCEC) White Paper - Delivering Genomics.

Technology to the Beef Industry. Introduction. Artificial selection of cattle has been practiced for centuries using a variety of methods and tools. Early selection was based on visual observations that eventually lead to the development of breeds.

The better use of information leads to an increase in accuracies compared to a linear analysis. The new accuracy procedure for calving ease will be used for the spring American Simmental genetic evaluation. Impacts (N/A) Publications.

It will conclude with a description of the plan for expanding multiple breed evaluations being proposed by the National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium (NBCEC). MODELING The genesis of models to analyze data from. The paper is initiated to design appropriate conservation strategies and breeding scheme for Fogera cattle breed that will be used as a guide for other Ethiopian indigenous cattle breed.

Two types of data, on-farm and on-station, were used; the on-farm data was collected from three districts, namely, Fogera, Dera, and Bahir Dar Zuria; those are expected as the home of the breed. A total of Cited by: 1.

Productivity is a powerful tool to improve the sustainability of food production, including beef, in the face of a growing population and increasing food demand.

This checkoff-funded fact sheet explains how the global impact of beef production could likely be dramatically reduced if other countries could achieve the same productivity as U.S.

The National Beef Cattle Evaluation Consortium (NBCEC) is an organization of researchers, educators, producers and industry leaders focused on genetic evaluation of beef cattle.

Its mission is to advance U.S. beef genetics, increase the sustainability and competitiveness of the beef industry, and provide consumers with affordable and healthy beef products.production is under threat, with growing threats to genetic diversity and the degradation of land and water resources.

Agriculture improves food security in many ways, most fundamentally by increasing the amount of food but also by providing the means to purchase food.the main South American beef producer/exporter countries: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay.

Genetic evaluations are in place in these countries for the main beef breeds. Given the complexity of climates and production environments a large number of bos taurus and bos indicus breeds and composites are used.
