Genetic improvement of resistance to infectious diseases in livestock

Genetic improvement of resistance to infectious diseases in livestock

Journal of Dairy Science 84(Elect. Supplement): E39-E46

Despite traditional disease control measures, losses attributable to infectious diseases continue to impede the livestock industries. The emergence of previously undescribed pathogens has been a feature of the end of this century. Increased global travel and semen exchange has contributed to the dissemination of pathogens previously confined to specific regions. In addition, it is now clear that bacterial pathogens cause diseases previously thought not to be infectious.
