A robertsonian translocation in the female cells of a bull co twin to a freemartin

A robertsonian translocation in the female cells of a bull co twin to a freemartin

Cornell Veterinarian 68(1): 94-98

A case of 1/29 chromosome translocation in a male Brown Swiss calf is reported. Except for aggressive behavior, the subject showed nothing clinically peculiar. A post-mortem examination did not reveal any internal macroscopic malformation. Since many reports indicate that this type of translocation, found in a wide range of breeds of Bos taurus of several countries, seems to be linked with a lowering of fertility, chromosome screening might play an important role in breeding programs in the immediate future.
