NFRF-Exploration grant awarded 2020: Sustainability of the beef industry and sustainability of temperate grasslands are equally challenging currently. Beef cattle don’t typically graze on tidy fields of managed pasture, but instead graze complex landscapes with highly diverse vegetation and plant...
Comparative transcriptomic analysis of rectal tissue from beef steers revealed reduced host immunity in Escherichia coli O157:H7 super-sheddersDownload
Super-shedder cattle are a major disseminator of E. coli O157:H7 into the environment, and the terminal rectum has been proposed as the primary E. coli O157:H7 colonization site. This study aimed to identify host factors that are associated with the super-shedding process by comparing...
Coordinated international action to accelerate genome-to-phenome with FAANG, the Functional Annotation of Animal Genomes projectDownload
Tosser-Klopp, G., Zhou, H., Palti, Y., Nanduri, B., Tixier-Boichard, M., Silverstein, J., Plastow, G. S., Sarropoulou, E., Brauning, R., Zhao, S., Rohrer, G. A., Elsik, C. G., Cheng, H.

We describe the organization of a nascent international effort, the Functional Annotation of Animal Genomes (FAANG) project, whose aim is to produce comprehensive maps of functional elements in the genomes of domesticated animal species.
Counting the number of permanent anterior (incisor plus canine) teeth is a well-established method for estimating physiological age in cattle. In this study, 1295 observations were made on cows and heifers representing five breed types and ranging in age from 475 to 2035 days. None of the breed...
Diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) activity in relation to muscle fat content and DGAT1 genotype in two different breeds of Bos taurusDownload
To circumvent the obvious waste of resources when producing good marbled beef, research is needed to clarify mechanisms which are involved in intramuscular fat storage in cattle. The possible association between the activity of diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) and muscle fat content was...
Intake, rumen digesta pool sizes, ruminal digestion rates, passage rates of liquid and particle pools and faecal particle-size distrubutions of grass, browse and lucerne diets were compared in ruminally fistulated moose, wapiti and cattle. For each diet, ruminal digestion rates (nylon bag...
Dominant Red Coat Color in Holstein Cattle Is Associated with a Missense Mutation in the Coatomer Protein Complex, Subunit Alpha (COPA) GeneDownload
Coat color in Holstein dairy cattle is primarily controlled by the melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) gene, a central determinant of black (eumelanin) vs. red/brown pheomelanin synthesis across animal species. The major MC1R alleles in Holsteins are Dominant Black (MC1RD) and Recessive Red (MC1Re). A...
The relative growth and distribution of bone from 256 bovine carcasses were compared among three breed-types (British, up to 30% Charolais and 30-50% Charolais) and three \"sexes\" (heifers, steers and bulls) over a wide range in carcass weight.
