Influence of bulls on the reproduction indicators of daughters taking into account their productivity

The main objective of the development of dairy cattle breeding is to increase

the breeding productive characteristics, taking into account the preservation of the

reproductive qualities of animals. The research was conducted on the basis of data

from the breeding plant for black-and-white cattle breeding OOO “Zazerkalie” in the

Vologda region. Bulls-improvers were determined by the complex of selected traits,

taking into account the linear affiliation: Meson 3097402441; Retirement 11720463 of

The analysis of the reproductive qualities in dairy cows depending on the Dairy Comp 305 system of electronic registration

the use of information technologies  is an important factor for improving productivity in animal husbandry and the industry on the whole. Electronic programs such as Dairy Comp 305 can help to achieve greater results. The program is installed for the first time in the Vologda region at «PZ Pokrovskoye OOO» (Limited Liability Company). There is no information about the effectiveness of its use. The article presents the characteristics of the company and the main reproduction indicators in 2013-2018.

An efficient mineral and energy supplement in the rations of highly productive cows

The article discusses the results of scientific and economic experiment carried out on black-motley breed cows on the use of mineral and energy supplement, ‘Reactor’, which includes energy components, calcium propionate, betaine and natural sorbent. The complex action of the investigated product had a positive impact on animal productivity. It was established experimentally that using during the transitional period of 250-350 gr. of ‘Reactor’ per head daily allows to increase daily milk yield of cows in the first hundred days of lactation by 9.8 and 14.5% (to 30.3 and 31.6 kg vs.

Effective additive «Tasco» in the diets of Ayrshire cows

Research on studies of feed additive Tasco, consisting of 96% dried seaweeds, influence on the amount and composition of milk in microelements and in iodine specification as well as reproductive characteristics performed by high-yielding cows are carried out. It is established that the studied product inclusion into cows’ rations by 40 and 60 gr a day per head allowed increase day yields from 29,5 kg to 31,7 and 32,8 kg (by 7,5 and 11,2%) in the first lactation period. The tendency of positive Tasco influence on cows’ reproduction is determined as service-period duration is decreased.

Immunogenetic markers of economically useful features in black-and-white cattle

Many researches have revealed the interdependence of erythrocyte antigens with milk productivity and reproductive ability features. However, there are different antigen factors connected with economically useful features in different herds and breeds. The aim of the research is to establish interdependence of economically useful features with blood group antigens. For this purpose, the estimation of immune genetic status in black-and-white cows has been conducted, and antigen-markers of high milk productivity and animal reproductive ability have been identified.
