In vitro fermentation characteristics of ryegrass-white clover sward containing different proportions of chicory
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2017)
Chicory (Cichorum intybus) is a deep-rooted grazeable forage used to overcome production and nutritive value shortfalls of perennial ryegrass (Loliun perenne) and white clover (Trifolium repens) swards during summer drought ...
Milk yield and urinary-nitrogen excretion of dairy cows grazing forb pasture mixtures designed to reduce nitrogen leaching
The effect of including a mixture of forbs in a standard perennial ryegrass-white clover pasture, with or without Italian ryegrass was investigated in a two-period grazing study comparing urinary nitrogen (N) excretion and ...
Development of a forage evaluation system for perennial ryegrass cultivar and endophyte combinations in New Zealand dairy systems
(New South Wales Department of Primary Industry, 2013-09)
An economic index for perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) cultivars is a relatively new concept, although recently introduced in Ireland (McEvoy et al. 2011). By contrast, in dairy cattle breeding, the concept of an ...
