  Cattle - MSN Encarta
Cattle, common term for the domesticated herbivorous mammals that constitute the genus Bos, of the family Bovidae, and that are of great importance to humans because of the meat, milk, leather, glue, gelatin, and other items of commerce they yield.
The concept and formulation of modern breeds of cattle began in the midregions of England, in northern Europe, and on the Channel Islands during the mid-1800s, and most modern breeds were formed in the latter half of that century.
Cattle with similar characteristics, however, were present in these areas even before the concept of breeds became dominant.

 National Cattlemen's Beef Association
Given that the incidence of tuberculosis in Holstein cross steers and Holstein cross spayed heifers from Mexico is comparable to the incidence of tuberculosis in Holstein steers and Holstein spayed heifers, this action is necessary to protect the health of domestic livestock in the United States.
Holstein steers and spayed heifers are much more likely to be infected with tuberculosis than other breeds of cattle, due to the fact that they almost always originate from or are raised on dairy farms, where animals are kept in close proximity, typically for several years.
Cattle in U.S. herds in 2000 were valued at $67 billion, with 1999 cash receipts of $36.5 billion from the sale of cattle, calves, beef, and veal.

The narrowing of the genetic base is of major concern to many cattle breeders and this is a consequence of a small effective population size and an increase in the inbreeding coefficient in cattle populations.
Studies of pedigrees of cattle populations found in Canada showed that the effective population size and rate of inbreeding over a 12-year period (1983-94) were 123 and 0.412 percent for Canadienne, 975 and 0.054 percent for Brown Swiss, and 2 183 and 0.024 percent for Jersey cattle populations.
In contrast, 41 percent of the Holstein bulls in the four Bull studs were sired by 10 bulls which is slightly lower than the 47 percent of progeny tested US bulls from 1975 to 1979 that were sired by the 10 most popular Holstein bulls (Rutter and Pearson, 1981).

 Atresia coli in Calves: Cause and Surgical Management (Illini DairyNet)
It is likely that atresia coli occurs in all cattle breeds secondary to vascular insufficiency of the developing spiral colon, and that in familial lines of Holstein-Friesian cattle the developing spiral colon grows at a faster rate and to a longer length than in other cattle breeds, predisposing the Holstein-Friesian fetus to atresia coli.
We suspect that familial lines of Holstein-Friesian cattle have a proportionately longer large intestine, resulting in an increased risk of vascular compromise during embryonic and fetal development of the colon.
In summary, Holstein-Friesian cattle appear genetically predisposed to atresia coli and early (before day 42 of gestation) or vigorous palpation per rectum of the amniotic vesicle can increase the probability of developing atresia coli during embryonic and fetal life.
