Growth curve estimation in pure goat breeds and crosses of first and second generation in Tunisian oases

Five non-linear statistical models were tested to fit the growth curve parameters of the kids of indigenous, Alpine and Damascus goats and their crosses. Data from 16 years’ periodical weight study was used to adjust the growth curve of 1,687 suckling kids before they attained the age of five months. Among the tested models, the iterative procedure made it possible for the Gompertz model to be identified as the...

Antimicrobial resistance of Escherichia coli O 157:H7/NM isolated from feaces of ruminant animals in Iran

Bacterial resistance to antimicrobial agents is a phenomenon problem, and the understanding of resistance acquisition and transmission can contribute to the development of new strategies to the clinical and socio-economic implication of this phenomenon, especially in ruminant animals. A total of 327 fecal samples of ruminant animals were examined for E. coli O157:H7/NM and the antibiotic susceptibility testing...
