it might be interesting at this point to look at breeds that seem to have different immune responses and how that relates to different things.


like say a sire who has no milk and why and why even through several generations, that effect has not been diluted very much.


at this point, the idea of breeds is simply a group of animals that had minimal infusion, usually because of a valley, distance or some other geographic limitation.  that is really all a breed is, along with a certain color pattern and here, its a couple to 5 genes, some really small amount that gives the illusion of a breed, ie polling and black hide.  there really is no such thing as a breed, only isolated populations and a bottleneck of some sort.


breeds are simply a way to have, well, you know......

when i hear desirable phenotype, i don't hear what was lost. and the connections, circumstances that drove the undesirable alleles.

really, the only double muscling allele to mess with is the piedmontese allele.


with a homozygous animal, the tenderness is intermediate to homozygous states, unlike other alleles supposedly due to the mutation being way at the end of the gene and allowing it to have some effect in a hetero state or some other similar explanation.
