Reproductive traits in cattle breeds adapted to tropical areas



Reproductive traits in cattle breeds adapted to tropical areas



1 Congresso Iberico Reproducao Animal, Estoril, Portugal 3 a 6 de Julho de 1997, Volume 1: comunicacoes principais ponencias: 50-65



A review of work on the development of specific biological mechanisms in tropical cattle that enable them to cope with their adverse environment, based on a long-term comparison of the reproductive performance of Sanga, Bos taurus and zebu cattle in Africa.
