    A pesar del avance en los derechos de las mujeres, los derechos a la tierra y a la seguridad de su tenencia no son disfrutados igualitariamente por mujeres y hombres en muchas partes del mundo. Esto vulnera los derechos humanos internacionales, ejerciendo asimismo un impacto negativo sobre los hogares y la economía. Los temas de género referidos a la tierra son complicados. Involucran territorios sociales y culturales sensibles y desafían estructuras de poder profundamente enraizadas.

    To determine the effect of cutting height on forage production of the grass species Brachiaria decumbens, Brachiaria humidicola, Brachiaria dictyoneura, and Brachiaria brizantha this experiment was carried out at Corpoica’s La Libertad Research Center (Villavicencio, Colombia), under typical conditions found in the piedmont region heights were evaluated 0, 5, 10 and 20 cm in pastures B. decumbens, B. humidicola, B. dityoneura cv. Llanero and 0, 10, 20 and 30 cm for B. brizantha cv. Toledo. The evaluations were conducted during the rainy and dry seasons of 2009 and 2010.

    Thirty three male tudanca young bulls were used to evaluate 2 production systems (intensive and semiextensive) and 2 slaughter ages (12 and 14 months). Although there were differences in the average daily gains along the finishing period between groups, no differences were observed in conformation score. In contrast, production system affected fatness score. Semiextensive feed animals slaughtered at 12 months of age presented values of fatness scores lower than other groups (p

    The use of markers-derived metrics has been suggested to infer relative inbreeding from the homozygosity of markers. Automated genotyping systems yield accurate genotypes of multiple SNPs which are useful markers for this goal. In the present study, 322 pigs of the Torbiscal closed strain of Iberian pigs have been genotyped for 192 selected SNPs, using the GoldenGate Genotyping Assay. The animals proceed from 56 litters born from minimum or maximum coancestry matings.

    The present work is part of an experimental program aimed to establish the dietary lysine (Lys) requirements of post-weaned Iberian piglets. For this purpose, we used 66 castrated male Iberian piglets of Silvela strain, with approximately 10 kg bodyweight and 40 days of age. Piglets were fed one of six experimental diets differing in their dietary Lys content. L-Lys was added in increasing concentrations (from 55 to 80 g Lys/kg crude protein) to a basal diet containing corn, barley and soybean meal, at the expense of corn starch.

    The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of the farm geographical location and of the theoretical time distance between the farm and the insemination center on the fertility after cervical AI. Data from 18,528 AI in Rasa Aragonesa ewes belonging to the UPRA selection scheme were recorded. An average fertility of 54.3% was observed, with significant differences among the three provinces studied (Huesca: 58.6%; Zaragoza: 55.6%; Teruel: 44.3%; p

    La importancia de los incendios forestales en la cuenca mediterránea hace de estas perturbaciones un factor determinante en el análisis y la gestión de riesgos ecológicos, así como en los vinculados a la protección civil. La actual demanda de servicios recreativos en el bosque genera una intensificación de estos riesgos, lo que precisa de una adecuada respuesta por todos los agentes implicados en la gestión.

    The Celta pig breed was the most important in Galicia (northwest of Spain) until beginning of the 20th century, suffering from this moment a continuous decrease caused by the introduction of improved breeds and their crosses. For this study 19 Celta pig breed from Santiaguesa genotype and 15 from Carballina genotype were used. Animals were weighted once at month during 12 months. To Santiaguesa genotype not significant differences (P>0.05) were observed until 198 days but it has been detected significant differences (P0.05) in any growth curve between gender.
