...ence among the different litter sizes does in the breed. The semen quality was high in different seasons. Dazu black goats might have shorter gestation period (147.9±1.7 days) and have longer kidding interval (237.8±4.6 days). The percentages of singletons, twins, triplets and quadruplets born were 1.98, 47.27, 40.02 and 10.29 %, respectively. The mean litter sizes (2.60±0.72) were the highest among the ...

...productive performances (litter size and weight) were determined and recorded. In addition, values of body temperature and blood glucose were determined after general anesthesia. The results indicated that N. sativa oil supplementation resulted in significant (P < 0.05) increase of RBCs, hematocrit, WBCs and plasma total protein values in addition to significant hypoglycemia compared to control. The quality of oocytes and reproductive performances we...

....05, t-test) between the litter size and total live kits obtained for 10µg and 15µg groups. Kit weight at birth showed no statistical difference (p>0.05, ANOVA) among all the groups. There was no still born in the control and the 5µg group. The gestation period (days) for the control and 5µg group were 32.00±0.00 while the gestation period (days) between the 10µg and 15µg groups was not statistically different (p&g...

A total of 384 small tail han sheep (STH) were sampled to detect single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), and Sequenom Mass ARRAY®SNP assay was applied to genotype SNP loci of the SYNE2 gene. In this study, four SNPs were identified and that SNPs were identified that involved in amino acid changes. Population...

One hundred and sixty blood samples were collected for DNA extraction; 74 from Zaraibi, 41 from Damascus, and 45 from Barki breeds. Two genotypes, TT and TC, in the α-lactalbumin gene were identified using single strand conformation polymorphism. DNA sequencing resulted in one non-synonymous MT163744: g.128T>C SNP (TCG Ser> CCG Pro) at t...

Litter weight at birth and weaning were higher (P<0.05) in rabbits treated with microalgae N. oculata compared to control. In conclusion, supplementation of microalgae N. oculata to rabbit diets has a positive effect on blood constituents and enhance reproductive, productive performance and oxi...

...y. Genes associated with litter size are widely reported and studied due to their economic impact. Estrogen receptor 1 (ESR1) gene has been linked to being one of the major genes affecting litter size in swine. The Philippine swine breed is not commonly used on a commercial scale but in backyard production. The aim of the study was to assess the allelic variation in 30 Philippine native pigs (PNP).

...t-align: justify;">Sheep litter size is the most crucial trait in terms of reproductive, and it is influenced by many factors, including ovulation rates, body scores, uterine capacity, and ewes’ body condition. Productive traits of ewes are known to be affected by lamb sex and body measurement. Thus, this study aimed to investigate the association of lamb’s sex with the ewes’ body measurement in single and twin pregnancies in Awassi ewes. Wit...
