By far the most common chromosomal abnormality in domestic cattle is a centric fusion of chromosomes, known as Robertsonian translocation (Robertson, 196). Since the first descriptions of the 1/29 translocation in cattle (Gustavsson and Rockborn, 1964; Gustavvson, 1966), at least 10 other centric fusions comprising different autosome pairs, in more than 30 breeds from over 24 countries have been identified.
