Comparison of methods for partitioning training and validation populations to optimize prediction accuracy and enable across-breed genomic selection in beef cattle
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
for these traits of economic importance. These regions will serve as independent validations in the literature as well as a guidepost for researchers looking for causal mutations within the bovine genome....
Genome scan in commercial angus cattle for quantitative trait loci influencing growth, carcass, and reproductive traits
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
influence all of the economically important growth and carcass traits, even for traits under strong selection. Despite considerable selection pressure by Angus producers on economically important traits over the past 30 years there remains a wide range...
Quantitative trait loci mapping and candidate gene analysis for growth and carcass traits on two bovine chromosomes
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
The first objective of this study was to identify genomic regions on BTA4 and BTA14 which harbor QTL affecting weight and carcass traits in a commercial Angus population. The mapping population consisted of 1,510 purebred ...
Phenotypic and genetic effects of disposition on beef tenderness and quality attributes
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
Cattle temperament (exit velocity; EV) and steak tenderness (Warner-Bratzler shear force) have been shown to be associated in Bos indicus cattle (Behrends et al., 2009). Both traits potentially provide opportunities for ...
