The urine patch of the grazing cow has been identified as the key source of N loss from pasture-based dairy systems. Although critical to N modelling, quantitative data on the annual area coverage of urine patches in pastures ...
Potential pasture nitrogen concentrations and uptake from autumn or spring applied cow urine and DCD under field conditions
Nitrogen (N) cycling and losses in grazed grassland are strongly driven by urine N deposition by grazing ruminants. The objective of this study was to quantify pasture N concentrations, yield and N uptake following autumn ...
Premature mammary development in ewe lambs exposed to an oestrogenic lucerne pasture
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
A report of mammary development in 6-month-old ewe lambs grazing lucerne on a commercial farm in North Otago provided an opportunity to investigate the possibility to use this as a tool to detect oestrogenic lucerne pastures. ...
Evaluation of a dairy agri-environmental programme for restoring woody green infrastructure
(Taylor & Francis (Informa UK Limited), 2017)
Pastoral landscape woody vegetation provides ecosystem services, but potentially competes for space, light and nutrients that could provide additional farm production. A questionnaire determined the values and behaviours ...
Plantain silage quality under variable management practices
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-17)
Two studies investigated the effect of regrowth and additives on preservation and quality of plantain ensiled in spring using a micro-silage technique. Study 1 compared the effect of regrowth at four (4L), five (5L) or six ...
