(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). ...
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)

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 ...
