TitleGenomic Selection for resistance to cattle tick ( Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus) in Hereford and Braford Breeds
Study TypeOther
Abstract Genetic resistance in cattle has been suggested as a suitable way to maintain tick burden under control and its consequent losses for livestock production. Exploring animals previously exposed to ticks segregated into tick-resistant (R) and tick-susceptible (S) hosts, we investigated the genetic mec .. [more]
