Data of 698 Murrah cows sired by 43 bulls maintained at the Central Cattle Breeding Farm, Alamadhi were analysed to study the performance of Murrah buffaloes at the coastal region of Tamil Nadu, India. Least-squares means and genetic parameters were estimated for different first lactation traits. The averages for 305-day and total lactation milk yields were 1616.3 ...

Mecheri sheep is one among the eight recognized sheep breeds of Tamil Nadu reared mainly for meat and the primary by-product is skin. Since blood biochemical parameters like blood glucose, protein. cholesterol and other biochemical constituents changes according to the type of feeding, age and sex of the animal. the study on blood biochemical profile of Mecheri shee...

Sheep chromosome 3 (Oar3) has the largest number of QTLs reported to be significantly associated with resistance to gastro-intestinal nematodes. This study aimed to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within candidate genes located in sheep chromosome 3 as well as genes involved in major immune pathways. A total of 41 SNPs were identified across 38 c...

Effect of fenugreek seed supplementation on milk yield and its composition were studied using twelve crossbred dairy cattle. While six cows were supplemented with soaked fenugreek seed, the rest were treated as control. The study period comprises of 30 days of pre-supplementation, 60 days of supplementation and 30 days of post-supplementation periods. The mean ...

Data on birth weight of 2365 Mecheri lambs born between 1978 and 2005 recorded at Mecheri Sheep Research Station. Pottaneri, Tami Nadu were analysed to identify the factors affecting birth weight of Mecheri lambs. The lambing occurred throughout the year. however majority ofthe Mecheri sheep (7642 per cent) lambed between September and February months. The overa...

The present study aimed at the genetic characterization of five major goat populations of Sri Lankaincluding four indigenous populations (Jaffna Local – JFL, Kottukachchiya – KOT, Southern – SLS andNorth Central – SNC) and one stabilized crossbred (German Boer x indigenous goats, also known as “SriLankan Boer” – SLB). Genetic diversity was evaluated using 15 micros...

Genetic diversity of south Indian meat type breeds was investigated by means of 15 ovine microsatellite markers. All used microsatellites amplified well and exhibited polymorphisms. A wide range of genetic variability was observed as allele varied from 4 to 10 in Madras Red; 4 to 10 in Mecheri; 4 to 12 in Pattanam; and 3 to 12 in Nellore sheep breeds. The mean n...
