Cytogenetic analysis of a family of subfertile Limousin/Jersey cows revealed the presence of an X - autosome translocation. The autosome involved was identified as one of pair 22 on the basis of G - banding and per cent total complement length evaluation (% TCL). Breeding attempts on the translocation carriers with various reputed A.I. bulls resulted in abortions, stillbirths and repeat breeding. These reproductive problems are attributed to embryonic death due to chromosomal imbalance in the female gametes produced
