Relative contribution of electrical stimulation to beef tenderness compared to other production factors [Article]
(Agricultural Institute of Canada, 2016)
Aging explained >45% of the variability in beef tend erness, whereas electrical stimulation explained >12%. The effect of electrical stimulation was significant for calf-fed steers up to 27 d of aging. However, this ...
Analysis of polymorphisms in candidate’s genes for meat quality in Lidia cattle [Article]
(Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (INIA), 2016)
The aim of this paper was to analyze the segregation of some polymorphisms in three genes ( CAPN1 , CAST and DGAT1 ) re- lated to meat quality in the Lidia cattle breed and some of its main lineages. To that ...
Association analysis of g.68G → A SNP in CAPN1 gene with carcass and meat quality traits in goose raised in organic dehesa [Article]
(Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology, 2016)
Meat quality is an important concern for the poultry industry. Domestic geese products obtained from free-range systems usually have rather tough meat, and it is necessary to select them to improve meat tenderness. The ...
Irrigation distribution networks' vulnerability to climate change [Article]
Climate change will lead to changed demands on ex isting irrigation systems. This paper presents a methodology for investigating the performance of irrigation networks under climate change, and applies this to an ...
Peso al nacimiento y al destete y crecimiento de corderos Merinos y cruzados con Merino Precoz y Ile de France: Análisis de algunos factores de variación [Article]
(Universidad de Córdoba, 2017)
El objetivo de este experimento fue estudiar el efecto del tipo genético, sexo, tipo de naci - miento y estación y año de nacimiento sobre el peso al nacimiento y al destete y crecimiento de corderos durante la lactación. ...
Efecto del Locus CSN3 sobre la composición de la leche de cabra de raza murciano-granadina [Article]

Characterization of Pumps for Irrigation in Central California: Potential Energy Savings [Article]
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2011)
The annual agricultural electric pumping usage in California is around 10 million MWh and most of it occurs in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys, wher e the majority of agriculture is located (Burt et al., ...
Individual increase in inbreeding allows estimating effective sizes from pedigrees [Article]
(INRA, EDP Sciences, 2008)
We present here a simple approach to obtain reliable estimates of the effective population size in real world populations via the computation of the increase in inbreeding for each individual (delta F(i)) in a given ...
Pedigree analysis in the Andalusian horse: population structure, genetic variability and influence of the Carthusian strain [Article]
The studbook of the Andalusian horse comprising a total of 75,389 individuals (6318 of them classified as Carthusians) was analysed in order to ascertain the genetic history of the breed and, specially, to evaluate its ...
Comparison of positional accuracy between RTK and RTX GNSS gased on the autonomous agricultural vehicles under field conditions [Article]
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2014)
Currently, many systems (machine vision, high resolution remote sensing, global positioning systems, and odometry techniques) have been integrated into agricultural e quipment to increase the efficiency, ...
