  • Invited review: Resource inputs and land, water and carbon footprints from
           the production of edible protein of animal origin

    • Abstract: Invited review: Resource inputs and land, water and carbon footprints from the production of edible protein of animal origin
      Gerhard Flachowsky, Ulrich Meyer, and Karl-Heinz Südekum
      Arch. Anim. Breed., 61, 17-36, https://doi.org/10.5194/aab-61-17-2018, 2018
      The objective of this review is to analyze crucial factors in the output fromthe production of proteins in food of animal origin, such as milk, meat andeggs. We then consider inputs such as land, water, fuel, minerals and feed,as well as characterize emissions. Finally, we estimate footprints forland (land footprint, LF), water (water footprint, WF) and greenhouse gasemissions (i.e., carbon footprint, CF) during the production process. Thewide range of different land and water inputs per unit feed between variousstudies largely influences the results. Further influencing factors are species and categories of animals that produceedible protein, their yields and thefeeding of animals. Coproducts with no or low humanly edible fractions andgrassland as feed contribute to a lower need for arable land and lower LF, WFand CF. The most efficient land use or the lowest LF per kilogram of edibleprotein was estimated for higher milk and egg yields; the highest LF valueswere calculated for beef, followed by pork. The lowest WF and CF werecalculated for edible protein of chicken meat and eggs. Edible protein fromruminants is mostly characterized by a higher CF because of the high greenhousegas potential of methane produced in the rumen. A key prerequisite forfurther progress in this field is the harmonization of datacollection and calculation methods. Alternatives to partial or complete replacementof protein of terrestrial animals, such as marine animals, insects, cellcultures, single-cell proteins or simulated animal products from plants,as well as changing eating patterns and reducing food losses arementioned as further potential ways for more efficient feed production. Forall those dealing with plant or animal breeding and cultivation and all thosewho are working along the whole food production chain, it is a major challenge to enhancethe production of more food for more people with, at the same time, less,limited resources and lower emissions.

  • Effects of different floor housing systems on the welfare of fast-growing
           broilers with an extended fattening period

    • Abstract: Effects of different floor housing systems on the welfare of fast-growing broilers with an extended fattening period
      Enver Çavuşoğlu, Metin Petek, İbrahima Mahamane Abdourhamane, Ahmet Akkoc, and Ersin Topal
      Arch. Anim. Breed., 61, 9-16, https://doi.org/10.5194/aab-61-9-2018, 2018
      This research was conducted to establish whether flooring systems, i.e., plastic, could be good alternatives to deep litter. What we have found is that in terms of some animal welfare parameters, such as footpad dermatitis and hock joint dermatitis, slatted floor housing can be a good alternative. However, as the birds get heavier, some other welfare problems occur, such as lesions on the breast and shoulder.

    • Abstract: The effects of Saccharomyces cerevisiae on the morphological and biomechanical characteristics of the tibiotarsus in broiler chickens
      Bayram Suzer, Ilker Arican, Derya Yesilbag, and Huseyin Yildiz
      Arch. Anim. Breed., 60, 439-446, https://doi.org/10.5194/aab-60-439-2017, 2017
      This study focused on examining the effects of different levels of Saccharomyces cerevisiae on broiler tibiotarsus traits and the reduction of leg problems by identifying the pathological changes in the leg skeletal system. Yeast supplementation led to an improvement in the bone traits of broiler chickens. Therefore, the use of yeast as a feed supplement in broilers is considered an economic and convenient way of providing animal welfare and preventing commercial losses due to leg problems.

  • Breast meat quality of chickens with divergent growth rates and its
           relation to growth curve parameters

    • Abstract: Breast meat quality of chickens with divergent growth rates and its relation to growth curve parameters
      Philipp C. Muth and Anne Valle Zárate
      Arch. Anim. Breed., 60, 427-437, https://doi.org/10.5194/aab-60-427-2017, 2017
      It has been stressed that increasing the growth velocity and muscle mass in chickens possibly resulted in trade-offs regarding product quality. Therefore, this research aimed at comparing the breast meat quality of chickens with divergent growth rates. The results suggest that selection on high growth rates could be associated with increased pH when the body weight of fast-growing birds reaches about 40 to 60 % of their growth potential and, possibly, also with increased cooking loss.

    • Abstract: Production traits, blood metabolic profile and fatty acids of meat and tallow in response to the partial replacement of soybean meal with peas in organic lambs' feed
      Zvonko Antunović, Željka Klir, Marcela Šperanda, Suzana Ćavar, Boro Mioč, and Josip Novoselec
      Arch. Anim. Breed., 60, 409-417, https://doi.org/10.5194/aab-60-409-2017, 2017
      As an alternative to soybean meal, which is a major source of proteins in animals' diets, and recently excluded from diets of animals in organic farming due to dubious quality and origin, we used pea grain (Pisum sativum subsp. sativum) in lambs' diets. With the addition of this valuable protein source, in the present research, production traits, fatty acid profile of meat, and blood parameters did not change.

    • Abstract: Goat kid slaughter value and muscle quality after dietary supplementation with an alfalfa protein–xanthophyll concentrate
      Anna Szymanowska, Anna Miduch, Tomasz Maria Gruszecki, Monika Greguła-Kania, and Eugeniusz Ryszard Grela
      Arch. Anim. Breed., 60, 419-425, https://doi.org/10.5194/aab-60-419-2017, 2017
      The objective of this study was to determine the effect on goat kids of supplementation with protein–xanthophyll concentrate (PX) obtained from alfalfa (Medicago sativa). Beneficial effects of feeding with PX concentrate were found in a higher loin percentage and improved tissue composition resulting from lower fat tissue content. The PX dietary supplement improved the chemical composition of the muscle tissue by increasing the content of protein and unsaturated fatty acids.

      The present study aimed at characterizing genetic diversity and relationship of 3 Niger cattle breeds (Zebu Arabe, Zebu Bororo and Kuri). High levels of allelic and gene diversity were observed while genetic differentiation was low. High genetic diversity and poor genetic structure might be due to historic zebu–taurine admixture and ongoing breeding practices in the region. The result of this study will help formulate effective strategies for conservation and improvement of Niger cattle breeds.

      Arch. Anim. Breed., 60, 391-397, https://doi.org/10.5194/aab-60-391-2017, 2017
      In mammals, the Y chromosome plays a pivotal role in male sexdetermination and is essential for normal sperm production. A number ofstudies were conducted on Y chromosome genes of various species andidentified single-copy and multi-copy genes. However, limited studiesabout donkey Y chromosome genes have been done. In this study, 263 malesamples from 13 Chinese donkey breeds were collected to analyze the copynumber variations (CNVs) of five Y chromosome genes using the quantitative PCR(qPCR) method. These five genes (cullin 4 B Y (CUL4BY),equus testis-specific transcript y1 (ETSTY1),equus testis-specific transcript y4 (ETSTY4), equus testis-specific transcript Y 5(ETSTY5), and sex-determining region Y (SRY) were identified asmulti-copy, whose median copy numbers (MCNs) were 5, 45, 2, and 2, and13 with CNV ranges of 1–57, 1–227, 1–37, 1–86 and 1–152, respectively. TheCNVs of these five genes were shared in different breeds. Compared toprevious studies, the copy numbers of five genes showed some distinctconsequences in this study. In particular, the well-known single-copy SRY geneshowed CNVs in donkeys. Our results provided genetic variations of donkey Ychromosome genes.

      Bovine cumulus–oocyte complexes were cultured in a three-step system imitating estradiol-17β (E2) and progesterone (P4) concentrations in preovulatory follicular fluid for in vitro maturation (IVM). The blastocyst formation rate after E2- and P4-imitated IVM was significantly higher than that after the other IVM (control, E2-imitated, P4-imitated), suggesting that the three-step IVM system with the preovulatory levels of E2 and P4 improves the developmental potential of embryos in vitro.

      Arch. Anim. Breed., 60, 373-383, https://doi.org/10.5194/aab-60-373-2017, 2017
      Intramammary infections in dairy cows lead to considerable economic losses for farmers. A new somatic cell count index (SCCI) was proposed for the accurate prediction of milk yield losses caused by elevated somatic cell count (SCC). Depending on the time of SCC elevation, parity, milk production level, and level of average SCC, the estimated milk yield loss from the phenotypic potential of milk yield was at least 0.8–0.9 kg day−1 for primiparous cows and 1.3–4.3 kg day−1 for multiparous cows.

      The long-horned Fulani zebu, spread all over the Sahel area, is one of the main cattle groups in Africa. Despite their importance, characterisation of these cattle is poorly developed. The current research illustrated a lack of differentiation among local populations of this cattle group at the body measurements level. Conservation or selection initiatives could be implemented at a cross-boundary level.

      We investigated the expression profile and polymorphism of bovine PPARD as well as their association with growth traits in Chinese cattle. Association analysis suggested that individuals with the GAAGTT combined genotype of three SNPs detected showed optimal values in all the growth traits analyzed. These results revealed that the GAAGTT combined genotype of three SNPs detected in the bovine PPARD gene was a significant potential genetic marker for marker-assisted selection in Chinese cattle.

      Quantitative or complex traitsare controlled by many genes and environmental factors. Most traits inlivestock breeding are quantitative traits. Mapping genes and causativemutations generating the genetic variance of these traits is still a veryactive area of research in livestock genetics. Since genome-wide and denseSNP panels are available for most livestock species, genome-wide associationstudies (GWASs) have become the method of choice in mapping experiments.Different statistical models are used for GWASs. We will review thefrequently used single-marker models and additionally describe Bayesianmulti-marker models. The importance of nonadditive genetic andgenotype-by-environment effects along with GWAS methods to detect them willbe briefly discussed. Different mapping populations are used and will also bereviewed. Whenever possible, our own real-data examples are included toillustrate the reviewed methods and designs. Future research directionsincluding post-GWAS strategies are outlined.

      The perilipin gene (PLIN) plays a crucial role in lipidmetabolism and fat deposition. In order to reveal the geneticeffects of PLIN polymorphisms on body weight (BW) traits inchickens, PLIN gene polymorphisms in 322 Jinmao Huachickens were detected by PCR-SSCP and DNA sequencing methods. ForPLIN primer pair 1, five genotypes (AA, AB, BB, JJ and JL)were detected in the Jinmao Hua chicken population and threemutations (g.1889C > T, g.1904T > C and g.1922C > T) were revealed by genesequencing. For PLIN primer pair 2, three genotypes (CC, CDand DD) were detected in the same population and two mutations(g.2014A > G and g.2020C > T)were revealed by gene sequencing. Least squares analysis showed thatindividuals with the JJ and CD genotypes performed better than theother Jinmao Hua chicken genotypes. Based on the five SNPs, thefrequency distributions of the eight haplotypes were estimated withPHASE2.1 software. C-T-C-G-T was the major haplotype witha frequency of 58.6957 %, while the frequency of C-C-C-A-C wasless than 1 %. Fourteen diplotypes were obtained from the eighthaplotypes. H1H1 was the dominant diplotype with a frequency of47.205 %. Least squares analysis indicated that BW with the H3H3diplotype was the lowest, while the H2H2 diplotype was the highest,suggesting that selecting for the H3H3 diplotype improved the BWtraits of Jinmao Hua chickens. The findings of this study should beuseful to expand the theoretical basis of the role the PLINin poultry molecular breeding of poultry.

      Ascites is a metabolic disorder in chickens. Hypoxemia and oxidative stress are specific characteristics in birds that develop ascites. We hypothesized that purslane, as one natural source of antioxidant and antihypoxic compounds, would attenuate the incidence and/or severity of T3-induced ascites in broilers. Supplementation of purslane powder to diet improved antioxidant status and attenuated the symptoms of ascites. However, it could not prevent the decrease in growth performance.

      This work identified SNPs in the growth- and development-related ATBF1 gene in cattle. Five novel SNPs were found in 644 cattle. The results found that SNP1, SNP2, and SNP3 and the combined genotypes SNP1–SNP3, SNP1–SNP4 and SNP2–SNP5 were significantly associated with growth traits in Qinchuan and Jinnan cattle. These findings indicate that the bovine ATBF1 gene has marked effects on growth traits, and the growth-trait-related loci can be used as DNA markers for MAS breeding programs in cattle.
