Short summary
An extensive genetic evaluation of cattle fattening performance was performed in this study. Fifteen SNPs in the LEP, FABP4, DGAT1, TG, IGF1, IGF1R, MYF5, LGB, CAPN1, CAST, GHR, and OLR1 genes were evaluated in 296 purebred Holstein–Friesian bulls using PCR-RFLP. This study clearly demonstrated that individual or combined effects of the genotypes at the selected genes may be effective on performance traits at different periods of animal growth and fattening.
