Candidate gene analysis for loci affecting sperm quality and fertility of boar
Fertility is one of the most important economical traits in swine production. Implementation of artificial insemination (AI) in swine production allowed improving selection on the boars for production traits, but at the ...
Molecular genetic analysis of positional candidate genes for mammary gland characteristics in pigs
Inverted teat reduce the number of functional mammary complexes in affected sows leading for reduction of piglet productivity and litter growth during the lactation period. This detect occures in commercial pig breeds with ...
Detection and characterization of QTL in a porcinen Duroc-Pietrain resource population
In the present thesis, genome scans were performed for QTL detection in a F2 resource population which was reciprocally crossed between Duroc and Pietrain. 1085 F2 progeny within 38 full-sib families were produced from ...
Changes of inner teat morphology caused by the milking process and by incomplete milking during dry-off as assessed by innovative technologies
In dairy farming, the timing of the lactation cycle and the way of milk removal differ considerably from the natural conditions. Ensuring good health and wellbeing of farm animals is of great interest from both an economic ...
