Wu Bin Chang Hong Geng Shcmin(Department of Animal Husbandry)
The genetic monitoring was carried out on eight herds(n = 125) from three systems of Pingli Yellow Cattle with blood protein polymorphism loci, coat color loci and exterior features as genetic markers by the stratified random cluster sampling in the central area of the breed distribution. The results showed that Pingli Yellow Cat'tle has some distinctive features of other Chinese Yellow Cattle breeds affected by Bos Indicus (Zcbu)during their origin and evolution. Pingli breed is a transitional 1'pcal Chinese Yellow cattle breed distributed from the North to the South in China.
