The effect of concurrent corticosteroid induced immuno-suppression and infection with the intestinal parasite Trichostrongylus colubriformis on food intake and utilization in both immunologically naïve and competent sheep
(Cambridge University Press, 2005-02)
The nutritional cost of both the acquisition and maintenance of immunity to gastro-intestinal nematodes was investigated using immunologically naïve 5-month-old lambs and immunologically competent 17-month-old ewes. Within ...
Effect of gender, gonadectomy and oestradiol-17β on growth in lambs under grazing conditions
(Cambridge University Press, 2001-11)
To identify separate effects of gender, castration and exogenous oestrogen on growth, castrated lambs of both sexes and entire male lambs (n = 8) were implanted subcutaneously with three sizes of oestradiol-17β implants, ...
Protein supply influences the nutritional penalty associated with the development of immunity in lambs infected with Trichostrongylus colubriformis
(Cambridge University Press, 2008-11)
The influence of dietary protein supply on the nutritional penalty associated with the acquisition phase of the immune response to gastrointestinal nematodes in lambs was investigated. Groups of lambs were offered either ...
