Chlorella pyrenoidosa supplementation increased the concentration of unsaturated fatty acids in the rumen fluid of cattle fed a low-quality tropical forage
(Sociedade Brasileira de Zootecnia (SBZ): Brazilian Society of Animal Science, 2020)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of algae and cottonseed meal (CSM) supplementation on the fatty acid (FA) profile in the rumen fluid (RF) of steers fed a low-quality forage. Five Bos indicus crossbred ...
The Happy Factor treatment threshold, used to determine Targeted Selective Treatment decisions for lambs, is transferable between farms
(Elsevier on behalf of the Animal Consortium, 2021-02-13)
Weight gain-based treatment decision-making has been shown to successfully reduce the number of anthelmintic treatments without compromising production as part of a Targeted Selective Treatment (TST)-based worm control ...
Variation in the stearoyl-CoA desaturase gene (SCD) and its influence on milk fatty acid composition in late-lactation dairy cattle grazed on pasture
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN), 2020-11-03)
Gene markers have become useful tools for improving animal genetics and breeding since they improve the accuracy of selection for superior breeding stock. In this study, the stearoyl-CoA desaturase (Δ-9-desaturase) gene ...
Identification of novel nucleotide sequence variations in an extended region of the bovine leptin gene (LEP) across a variety of cattle breeds from New Zealand and Nigeria
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology (FBN), 2020-07-22)
Leptin is mainly secreted by white adipose tissue in animals. Leptin acts by stimulating or inhibiting the release of a neurotransmitter, which eventually results in a decrease in food/feed intake and an increase in energy ...
