Something like this?

What about goats instead of a cow? You could more easily keep the two genders and goat's milk ice cream is really good. They also might dispose of other refuse. Don't goats eat anything almost?
Don't forget, kid is almost as yummy as lamb! Two for one deal!

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Congratulations.

I just did a search, you are the first person to use the word "homozygosity" on SailNet.com

Now. Let us somehow work polymerase chain reaction into a sailing discussion.

Qualifying diversity in bovine cattle

There is a new open access paper for all those with interest in the genetic history of cows:

Deirdre C. Purfield et al., Runs of homozygosity and population history in cattle. BMC Genetics, 2012. Open access ··> LINK [doi:10.1186/1471-2156-13-70]


The runs of homozygosity (ROH) are used to qualify the nature of the inbreeding (endogamy) process where it exists. When the ROHs are short (for example among Malagassy Zebu), that indicates that the genome has been recombined and fragmented many times, while when the ROH are longer, it can be inferred that inbreeding process is recent, as happened in Jersey and Guernsey, who applied strict cattle regulations since the 19th century



The full names of the breeds are:

•African taurines: Baoule (BAO), Lagoude (LAG), N'Dama (NDA), Oulmès Zaer (OUL), Somba (SOM)
•African hybrids: Kuri (KUR), Sheko (SHK)
•African zebu: Zebu Bororo (ZBO, Zebu Fulani (ZFU), Zebu from Madagascar (ZMA)
•British Isles: Angus (ANG), Guernsey (GNS), Hereford (HFD), Jersey (JER), Red Angus (RGU)
•Northern Europe: Bretonne Pied Noire (BPN), Holstein-Friesian (HOL), Maine-Anjou (MAN) Maraichine from Parthenaise (MAR), Monbeliard (MON), Normande (NOR), Norwegian Red Cattle (NRC), French Pied Rouge Lowland (PRP)
•Central/SW France: Aubrac (AUB), Charolais (CHL), Charolais from UK (CHA), Gascon (GAS), Limousin (LMS), Salers (SAL)
•Alpine: Abondance (ABO), French Brown Swiss (BRU), Brown Swiss (BSW), Piedmontese (PMT), Romagnola (RMG), Tarine (TAR), Vosgienne (VOS)
•Zebus: Beef Master (BMA), Brahman (BRM), Gir (GIR), Nelore (NEL), Santa Gertrudis (SGT)

.
