Genetic defects
« on: December 20, 2018, 05:24:18 PM »
If I understand it right........there are 10 registered Angus dna tested as dwarf carriers. So there is apparently a test for that. I wondered about Herfords? Would the same test work on Herfords? Or do they do a different gene test or do they even test. I always thought that there would still be some dwarfism genes floating around. And then I always wondered if th or pha might show up in a Herford or Angus or Simmental on down the line because of unscrupulous breeding matings. Any thoughts?

And then I wondered about say the marbling gene or whatever. Would a test that works for the Angus breed.......work on a Shorthorn?

Thanks, A.J.  For which type of dwarfism is it?  Long nose dwarf?

I'm not sure....I'd have to check back. Seems like 8 out of ten animals listed on the AAA website had the same prefix and a lot of them were tested in 2011 maybe...

My understanding is the marbleing tests for the Wagyu breed, do not work with other breeds. I also doubt that marbleing in a one gene trait.
If it was easy, everyone would succeed.

As I understand it the Herford cattle have a few "diluter" gene carriers. When bred to Angus......you can get grey calves. I wonder if this is a bleed over.......from Simmental accidentally being introduced to the Herford breed?

There is apparently a hand full of curly calf carriers in the Simmental breed (probably brought in through the appendix program via Angus). Is the curly calf deal ever tested in say the Shorthorn breed? There has been a hand full of Angus used on Shorthorn cattle.

I guess BR New Design is a dd carrier. I think he was pretty popular.

Accidentally was the best world to explain!
Too many accidents on Herefords, Angus......on Shorthorn too, but are official accidents!
