Quantification of important biochemical (e.g. intramuscular fat content, toughness) properties of beef m. longissimus thorasis (LT) using technologies of optical spectroscopy and digital image analysis was examined in this thesis research. The main objective of this thesis work focused on the...

Background The Canadian Cattle Genome Project is a large-scale international project that aims to develop genomics-based tools to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of beef and dairy production. Obtaining DNA sequence information is an important part of achieving this goal as it...
We developed a marker based infinitesimal model for quantitative trait analysis. In contrast to the classical infinitesimal model, we now have new information about the segregation of every individual locus of the entire genome. Under this new model, we propose that the genetic effect of an...
Approximately 70% of the cost of beef production is impacted by dietary intake. Maximizing production efficiency of beef cattle requires not only genetic selection to maximize feed efficiency (i.e. residual feed intake - RFI), but also adequate nutrition throughout all stages of growth and...
Application of antimicrobials for the elimination of Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes in brine injected beefDownload
The application of antimicrobials to a brine-injected raw beef roast for the elimination/inhibition of heat resistant Escherichia coli and Listeria monocytogenes was investigated. The choice of antimicrobials for use in brine injected beef was based on minimum bactericidal concentration in brine...
Improving feed efficiency has become a top priority in beef cattle production because of the rapidly increasing cost of feed provision. However, because of the expense associated with collecting individual animal feed intake data, only a relatively small number of animals have been tested,...
In a calving ease comparison involving 106 calves born to first calf heifers, calves sired by Red Angus bulls were heavier at birth and required more calving assistance than Corriente-sired calves. However, the easier calving Corriente-sired calves experienced equivalent death loss and were...
Three groups of once-calved (OCH) heifers were slaughtered following the weaning of their calves at 3 (OCH3, n = 32), 5 (OCH5, n = 33) and 7 (OCH7, n = 31) months postcalving. A fourth group of heifers was fed a silage/grain diet and slaughtered at 15 mo of age (C, n = 32). Alternate sides of...
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...
Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) is a bacterial pathogen associated with foodborne diarrheal disease. Infection with STEC presents as a mild, watery diarrhea to hemorrhagic colitis and can progress to the life-threatening complication, hemolytic uremic syndrome. Cattle are recognized...
