Application of genomics-based tools leading to the identification of markers on bovine chromosome 14 influencing milk production and carcass quality traitsDownload
Genetic improvements in beef and dairy cattle can bring significant advances in satisfying the global food demand, which is expected to double by 2050. Several DNA markers have been identified on bovine chromosome 14 (BTA14), but low mapping resolution prevents their refinement for identification...
Since the early decades of the 20th century, the alignment of germ theory, pasteurisation technologies, nutrition, administrative and regulatory systems, and illness has normalised unpasteurised milk as dangerous while positioning pasteurised milk as safer and equally nutritious. This alignment...
Impact of Genotype Imputation on the Performance of GBLUP and Bayesian Methods for Genomic PredictionDownload
The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of genotype imputation on the performance of the GBLUP and Bayesian methods for genomic prediction. A total of 10,309 Holstein bulls were genotyped on the BovineSNP50 BeadChip (50 k). Five low density single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) panels,...
Four Alpine does were used in a 4 × 4 Latin square design to determine the effects of feeding canola oil at four levels: 0, 2, 4 and 6% on milk fatty acid profile. The sum of C12:0 + C14:0 + C16:0(hypercholesterolemic fatty acids) decreased linearly and C18:0 + C18:1: C16:0 (indicator of...
Kinetics studies of chemical reactions and quality changes in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) enriched milk treated with high-pressure sterilizationDownload
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a bioactive lipid naturally found in milk, is thermally degraded through oxidation during thermal processing. Finding alternatives to enhance the retention of CLA is challenging. In this thesis, high-pressure sterilization (HPS) was used to enhance CLA retention in...
