P4/E2-based protocol for synchronisation of ovulation of mares during the breeding and non-breeding season
AbstractDispersed ovulation at the breeding (BS) and anestrus at non-breeding season (NBS) are major impediments to embryo transfer and insemination programmes. The present study aimed to evaluate a hormonal P4/E2-based synchronisation protocol in mares during both the BS and the NBS on ovarian/follicle behaviour. Mares underwent a hormone protocol to synchronise their ovulation during the BS (n = 8) and NBS (n = 10), starting (D0) with the insertion of an intravaginal device containing 1 g of P4 and 7 mg Estradiol Benzoate IM. (EB). On D9, the device was removed and injected with 0.25...

Mineral composition of two Stylosanthes species oversown in natural pasture: effect of tillage practice and sowing method
AbstractNatural pastures are the primary sources of feed for ruminant in southwest Nigeria, but they are of poor quality. Oversowing of legumes could augment the nutrients supplied by the poor forages but this is rarely explored. Here, we oversowed two legumes (Stylosanthes guianensis cv. Cook andStylosanthes hamata cv. Verano) into natural pasture using different tillage methods (zero-tillage and minimal tillage) and sowing methods (broadcast or drill), and examined their macro and trace minerals. We found that the two legumes produced similar (p >  0.05) calcium, phosphorus, and potassium in all treatmen...

Current status of research on linear type traits in Indian cattle and future strategies
AbstractLinear type traits are of quite importance to animal breeders because of their significant influence on production performance as well as longevity and thus on overall profitability of the enterprise. To sustain the high milk production of dairy animals for a longer time without facing adverse consequences on animal health, it is important to include type traits in selection criteria. Besides, type traits have been found to have correlations with many economic traits. Dairy advanced countries are using linear type traits of cows in their selection programs, but due emphasis has not been given to type traits in Indi...

Characterization of splenic MRC1 hi MHCII lo and MRC1 lo MHCII hi cells from the monocyte/macrophage lineage of White Leghorn chickens
AbstractMonocytes/macrophages, which are found in a variety of organs, maintain tissue homeostasis at a steady state and act as the first line of defence during pathogen-induced inflammation in the host. Most monocyte/macrophage lineage studies in chickens have been largely performed using cell lines, while few studies using primary cells  have been conducted. In the present study, the phenotypic and functional characteristics of splenic monocyte/macrophage lineage cells during steady state and inflammatory conditions were examined. Splenic monocyte/macrophage lineage cells could be identified as MRC1loMHCIIhi and MRC...

Comparison of Two Multilocus Sequence Typing Schemes for Mycoplasma bovis and Revision of the PubMLST Reference Method [Clinical Veterinary Microbiology]
Mycoplasma bovis causes pneumonia, pharyngitis, otitis, arthritis, mastitis, and reproductive disorders in cattle and bison. Two multilocus sequence typing (MLST) schemes have been developed for M. bovis, with one serving as the PubMLST reference method, but no comparison of the schemes has been undertaken. Although the PubMLST scheme has proven to be highly discriminatory and informative, the recent discovery of isolates missing one of the typing loci, adh-1, raises concern about its suitability for continued use. The goal of our study was to compare the performance of the two MLST schemes and identify a new reference sch...

Development of a Multiplex PCR-Based Assay for Rapid Serotyping of Erysipelothrix Species [Clinical Veterinary Microbiology]
The Gram-positive bacterium Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae is a zoonotic pathogen that causes erysipelas in a wide range of mammalian and avian species. Historically, E. rhusiopathiae has been differentiated from other Erysipelothrix species by serotyping. Among 28 serovars of Erysipelothrix species, specific serovars, namely, 1a, 1b, and 2 of E. rhusiopathiae, are associated mainly with the disease in pigs, poultry, and humans; however, other serovar strains are often simultaneously isolated from diseased and healthy animals, indicating the importance of isolate serotyping for epidemiology. The traditional serotyping protoc...
