The Genetics of Cattle (2nd Ed.)
Auteurs : GARRICK David, RUVINSKY A.
Understanding of cattle genetics and genomics has increased dramatically. This book covers genetic components behind important factors in cattle production such as breeds, disease resistance, growth, development, behaviour, body composition and meat quality. With significant updates throughout, this new edition includes significantly updated material, new contributing authors, and new chapters on genetics of fat production and deposition, nutrition, feed intake and feed efficiency, growth and body composition and genomic selection in beef and dairy cattle.
