Potential anthelmintic properties of nitrogenous fertilisers
(Lincoln University, 2016)
This dissertation describes a series of experiments designed to understand the potential anthelmintic properties of nitrogenous fertilisers for control of gastrointestinal parasites. Anthelmintic administration is no longer ...
Dry matter production of Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) under rotational grazing at Ashley Dene
(Lincoln University, 2012)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) is a key legume for dryland farming systems in New Zealand. This experiment compared dry matter production of seven lucerne cultivars across six paddocks in a rotationally grazed system. ...
Evaluation of perennial ryegrass cultivars for dairy production under different pasture management
(Lincoln University, 2017)
The main objective of this thesis was to evaluate perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) cultivars for dairy production under different pasture management. Five experiments were conducted in Canterbury, New Zealand to ...
Potential anthelmintic properties of urea
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2017)
Current gastrointestinal parasite treatment options rely heavily on chemical anthelmintic intervention which targets the nematode residing in the host. However, targeting these organisms during parts of their lifecycle ...
Use of a urine meter to detect variation in urination behaviour of dairy cows on winter crops
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2015-06-30)
Nitrate leaching loss from urine patches is predicted using a number of variables including urine N concentration, number of urine patches produced, and urine patch size however, there is a lack of quantitative data on the ...
Effects of time of maize silage supplementation on herbage intake, milksolids production, nitrogen partitioning and rumen function of lactating dairy cows
(Lincoln University, 2014)
The effect of the time of maize silage supplementation relative to a short (4-5 hours) herbage meal on herbage dry matter (DM) intake, milksolids (MS) production, nitrogen (N) partitioning and rumen function of lactating ...
