Abstract

The terminology concerning defects or abnormalities in cattle can render confusion if there is a not a distinction between the adjectives congenital and hereditable. The word congenital is derived from the Latin words con and genitalis. Con means with or together and genitalis means to beget or reproduction. Thus the word congenital describes those conditions which are present at birth as a result of the developmental process.
