Subfertility and sterility in Holstein-Friesian cattle with numerical and structural chromosomal aberrations

Ars Veterinaria 3(2): 227-234

Subfertility and sterility in Holstein-Friesian cattle with numerical and structural chromosomal aberrations

Two Holstein-Friesian bulls and one Holstein X Gir cow were suspected of subfertility and sterility and were subjected to chromosome analysis. The cow proved to be a typical sterile freemartin with chimaerism of the sex chromosomes 60,XX/60,YY in the proportion of 96.7% of XX cells and 3.3% of XY.

From 18 Aug. to 18 Oct., rectal temp. and respiratory rate were measured twice daily in heifers of the 3 types (24, 18 and 16 animals resp.). There were no significant differences between the breed groups in rectal temp., but the superscript 3/4 H...
