Effects of feed intake and genetics on tissue nitrogen-15 enrichment and feed conversion efficiency in sheep
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2015-12-01)
This study investigated the effects of sheep genetics and feed intake on nitrogen isotopic fractionation (Δ15N) and feed conversion efficiency (FCE; live weight gain/DMI), using a 2 × 2 factorial design, with 2 levels of ...
Variation in the bovine FABP₄ gene affects milk yield and milk protein content in dairy cows
(Scientific Reports, 2015-06-12)
Fatty acid binding proteins (FABPs) bind long-chain fatty acids and are involved in their intracellular transport. Of the known bovine FABP genes, FABP₄ has been mapped to a region on chromosome 14 that contains quantitative ...
Ex-vivo cow rumen fluid fermentation: Changes in microbial populations and fermentation products with different forages
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-07-09)
This study investigated the effects of three forage treatments [herbal plantain (PL), ryegrass-white clover pasture (RW) and root crop fodder beet (FB)] on ex-vivo rumen fluid fermentations. Quantitative real-time Polymerase ...
