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 ...
The effects of dietary nitrogen to water-soluble carbohydrate ratio on isotopic fractionation and partitioning of nitrogen in non-lactating sheep
(Cambridge University Press (CUP) on behalf of the Animal Consortium, 2013-08)
The main objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between partitioning and isotopic fractionation of nitrogen (N) in sheep consuming diets with varying ratios of N to water-soluble carbohydrate (WSC). ...
