The Rumen methanogen community and diurnal activity in pasture based dairy cows of the South Island
(Lincoln University, 2012)
The South Island of New Zealand offers a novel medium for studying methanogen community because dairy cows are fed almost exclusively on pasture and yet have unusually high milk production due to high dry matter intakes ...
The effect of winter grazing and a nitrification inhibitor on nitrous oxide emissions and denitrification in a stony soil
(Lincoln University, 2015)
Intensive grazing of forage crops by dairy cows is common practice during the winter months in the Canterbury region of New Zealand. Such intensive grazing on wet soil increases the risk of denitrification and the production ...
Intake and performance of dairy cattle on forages in winter
(Lincoln University, 2013)
The effect of crop type, crop allowance and feeding frequency on DM intake, body condition score (BCS) gain, grazing behaviour and rumen physiology of dairy cattle fed forage crops during winter was examined in three ...
The impact of using Overseer 6.2.2 in reducing nitrogen losses to water on dairy support farms using kale and fodder beet forage systems
(Lincoln University, 2016-11-04)
Recent intensification of farm systems (especially within Canterbury) has resulted in increased nitrogen losses to water. This has created health risks and the eutrophication of waterways. Winter grazing of dairy cows on ...
Urinary nitrogen concentration from dairy heifers grazing kale supplemented with either plantain or perennial ryegrass baleage in winter
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
The effect of feeding two different supplements (perennial ryegrass or plantain baleage) on urinary nitrogen (N) excretion from dairy heifers (8 months old, 180 kg liveweight (LW)) grazing kale was examined in two successive ...
