Effect of post grazing residual and concentrate feeding on milk production in early lactation
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2013)
Two strategies to increase nutrient supply to early lactation dairy cows were compared and the cumulative effects on pasture quality and milk production were investigated. In a farmlet experiment the effect of feeding ...
Dry matter and sheep production of four dryland tall fescue-clover pastures 4-6 years after establishment
(New Zealand Grassland Association Inc., 2015)
Effects of tall fescue cultivar (‘Advance’ and ‘Flecha’) and clover species (white and subterranean (sub) clovers) combinations on pasture dry matter (DM) and sheep production were assessed in years four (2011/12), five ...
Urine volume of non-lactating dairy cows in late gestation fed forage based diets in winter
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2016)
Quantitative information on urine volume of dairy cows fed winter forages is required to accurately evaluate nitrate leaching risks on these diets. Thirty-two Friesian x Jersey non-lactating, pregnant dairy cows were fed ...
Functional traits, morphology, and herbage production of vernalised and non-vernalised chicory cv. Choice (Cichorium intybus l.) in response to defoliation frequency and height
Chicory (Cichorium intybus L.) used in pastoral systems has the attributes required of a forage species to reduce animal urinary nitrogen loading to soil, increase milk production, and enhance milk fatty acid profile to ...
Animal performance changes over 11 years after implementing a lucerne grazing system on Bog Roy Station
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2019-11-04)
In 2008, Bog Roy was run as a typical high-country station with merino ewes and lambs set stocked for long periods of the year, with 60 ha of lucerne grown for hay. Over the next 7 years, the lucerne and ryecorn areas ...
Liveweight gain and urinary nitrogen excretion of lambs grazing diverse (plantain, Italian ryegrass and red clover) or ryegrass-white clover pasture in autumn
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2020-09)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of grazing a diverse pasture of plantain, Italian ryegrass, and red clover versus a ryegrass-white clover pasture on the liveweight gain (LWG) and urinary nitrogen ...
