Inner pelvic measurements in dairy breeds
Published November 20, 2011
31-35

Dystocia causes great financial losses: due to dystocia milk production is decreased and the probability of calf loss is increased. There are many factors that may cause dystocia. One of the factors –often investigated in beef cattle- is pelvic measurements. There have not been inner pelvic measurement comparisons done on dairy breeds in Hung...ary.
After comparing the imported, primiparous cows, Jerseys turned out to have the smallest absolute inner pelvic measures. According to their age and weight, Brown Swiss cows had the largest pelvic dimensions. Ayrshire, Norwegian and Swedish Red, the three dairy breeds which share similar genetic background did not differ in most measures. Holsteins were closest to the apparent ideal 1:1 horizontal and vertical diameter ratio; however, this breed suffers the most from dystocia. Jerseys, despite having the smallest pelvic area are famous of their calving ease, perhaps not by coincidence. Although this dairy breed is the lightest, when the pelvic area was compared in ratio of body weight Jerseys were not smaller than the 130 and 114 kg heavier Norwegian and Swedish Red cows.

Organoleptical and instrumental examination of broilers’ valuable meat-parts
Published July 31, 2012
37-41

The aim of our study was to compare some meat quality parameters (color,- evenness of colour- and tone of meat) of Ross 308, Cobb 500 and 
Ross parents hibrids. These qualities are of preliminary importance for consumers and are related to several evaluating features influencing the preparation. The colour of the breast and thigh muscle...s was measured by Minolta CR-300 type colour measuring equipment. The evenness of color- and tone of the breast and thigh muscles were measured in the laboratory of Campden BRI Magyarország Nonprofit Kft.
We found that in the females the color of Ross 308 pullets’ breast meat was significantly darker. In the males the darkest breast meat was detectable in the case of the Ross parents hybrids. In neither sexes wast found significant difference – in all but one – in quality parameters of thigh meat.

Macro element contents of different genotype cows’ milk
Published December 1, 2010
27-31

The level of mineral elements is important factor regarding the quality of milk. The aim of our research study was to determine the content of mineral elements in milk of Holstein, Jersey, Brown Swiss, Ayrshire, Norwegian-red, Swedish-red cows in the first stage of lactation. All cows were fed with the same type (composition) of feed and they w...ere kept under the same condition. The concentration of macroelements (K, Na, Ca, P, Mg, S) in digested milk samples was determined by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES).
