The ‘Polled gene marker refinement: refinement of the CSAFG29 microsatellite marker test for polled’ project built on the findings of previous MLA research to improve polled gene marker tests in the hope that these developments will lead to the phasing out of de-horning.

The ‘Plasma anti-mullerian hormone (AMH): determining the value as a phenotypic and genetic marker for reproductive rate’ project modelled the potential value of plasma AMH as a phenotypic and genetic marker for reproductive rate in sheep and beef cattle.

The Ideal markers for tropically adapted cattle – proof of concept: functional mutations for bull fertility project identified functional mutations via a combination of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and sequenced…
