Breeding For Resistance In California Strawberry To Verticillium Dahliae, Zachary Christman Mar 2018

Breeding For Resistance In California Strawberry To Verticillium Dahliae, Zachary Christman

Department of Agronomy and Horticulture: Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research

Since 1930 the University of California, Davis, has been developing strawberry cultivars that are adapted to the agricultural industry and regional farms. Developing cultivars that require fewer inputs are of significant economic importance in agronomy. Developing a crop resistant to a disease is beneficial for horticulturists since less labor and chemicals are needed for a high yield.6

In commercial strawberry cultivars, complete resistance to V. dahlia is extremely rare. The majority of Californian strawberry cultivars are highly susceptible to it.2 Over the last 18 years of plant breeding for strawberry cultivars with a high degree of resistance and …

Breeding Soundness Examination Of Rams, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Breeding Soundness Examination Of Rams, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

The objective of a breeding soundness examination (BSE) of rams is to evaluate and classify their potential breeding ability. This process should include evaluation of their physical condition as well as an evaluation of the semen itself. A BSE does not include an evaluation of sex drive or breeding behavior because there are no standardized criteria by which to judge these. Their best evaluation at present will come from observation of the rams breeding behavior after introduction into the ewe flock.


Understanding Bull Breeding Soundness Exams, Clell Bagley, Craig Burrell Jul 1997

Understanding Bull Breeding Soundness Exams, Clell Bagley, Craig Burrell

All Current Publications

Controversy still exists about Breeding Soundness Examinations (BSE) and what they can and cannot do. At times they are not used because of a lack of understanding of their value while at other times they are used with unrealistic expectations. First, BSE is performed to identify bulls with reduced fertility not just to find those which are sterile. Very few bulls are sterile but a significant percent have reduced fertility.


Preparing Bulls For The Breeding Season, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Preparing Bulls For The Breeding Season, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

With proper care prior to and during the breeding season, cattlemen can increase the breeding capacity of bulls. Breeding soundness evaluations and trichomoniasis testing are tools which can aid a herd manager as he makes critical decisions for next year’s calf crop.


Breeding Soundness In Rams: How To Do It..., Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Breeding Soundness In Rams: How To Do It..., Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

In order for ram breeding soundness examinations to be of maximum value to producers they must be relatively thorough as well as consistent. There is so much normal variation between rams that we cannot afford to add additional variability by lack of observation or inconsistent techniques.

G96-1287 Design Of A Spring-Loaded Gate Latch For Swine Breeding Facilities, Donald G. Levis, Charlie Gilmore, Gerald R. Bodman Jan 1996

G96-1287 Design Of A Spring-Loaded Gate Latch For Swine Breeding Facilities, Donald G. Levis, Charlie Gilmore, Gerald R. Bodman

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension: Historical Materials

This publication offers plans and discussion of the spring-loaded gate latch used in swine breeding facilities. Swine breeding facilities function more smoothly when gates have latches that can be worked easily and quickly. A gate latch should be designed so the latch can be released (or fastened) and the gate opened (or closed) with a continuous motion using only one hand. The illustrated gate latch design has worked well in a swine breeding facility. The latch design allows a gate in the partition between two breeding pens to swing into either breeding pen.

G96-1278 Use Of Cooled Stallion Semen, Kathleen P. Anderson Jan 1996

G96-1278 Use Of Cooled Stallion Semen, Kathleen P. Anderson

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension: Historical Materials

This NebGuide discusses the benefits of using cooled stallion semen for horse breeding.

Using cooled, transported stallion semen is quickly becoming a viable breeding option for many horse producers. An increasing number of breed associations are recognizing the benefits of cooled semen and making it an option for producers. Mare owner's who are able to use cooled semen experience less expense related to breeding, if the program is properly conducted. Transporting cooled semen from the stud farm to the mare allows owners to reduce mare care and transportation costs. Furthermore, because the mare will remain on-the-farm, there is less chance …

G94-1202 Vaccination Guide For The Small Poultry Flock, Eva Wallner-Pendleton Jan 1994

G94-1202 Vaccination Guide For The Small Poultry Flock, Eva Wallner-Pendleton

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension: Historical Materials

This NebGuide will help the small flock owner decide whether vaccinations might help prevent disease in the flock. Types of vaccines and methods of application are also discussed.

Vaccines are widely used by the livestock industry to prevent diseases. Commercial poultry (farms with greater than 5,000 birds) are almost universally vaccinated against a variety of diseases. Preventative vaccinations have resulted in increased health and improved production efficiency in the poultry industry.
