Inherited stiffness and crippling of joints (Arthrogryposis congenita) in the calf

Inherited stiffness and crippling of joints (Arthrogryposis congenita) in the calf

Deutsche Tierärztliche Wochenschrift 67: 41-44

In North Germany 221 progeny of a Friesian bull in 5 different herds showed 12 cases of deformity in which were seen malformations due to hypoplasia and agenesis of the carpal and tarsal joints giving rise to anchylosis. Literature on the condition is reviewed and the results of a genetical analysis of the calves' antecedents are given and discussed. The antecedents of 11 calves could be traced and all except 2 of these were found to be interrelated and were traced back to one bull.
