    • Comparative aspects of copper metabolism in sheep and deer (Cervus elaphus) 

      Freudenberger, David O. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1986)
      Ten yearling red deer stags (Cervus elaphus) and ten yearling Coopwerth wether sheep were offered ryegrass-white clover silage in amounts close to maintenance energy requirement. For six of each species, the diet was ...
    • Copper metabolism in small ruminants : with special emphasis on goats 

      Mahuyemba, Alphonse Shija (Lincoln University, 1990)
      Twenty-four 1 – 1½year-old castrated Cashmere goats and 24 1½year-old Corriedale wethers were individually penned and offered ryegrass-white clover silage at maintenance level. Mineral content of basal silage was 4.01 mg ...
    • Effect on wool growth of dietary supplements of normal and treated casein 

      Bryden, J. McG. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1969)
      The rate of production of keratinized fibres from skin follicles in sheep can be profoundly influences by nutrition. Some of the earliest controlled experiments demonstrating this fact appear to be those reported by Weber ...
    • Flux balance analysis to model microbial metabolism for electricity generation 

      Mao, Longfei (Lincoln University, 2013)
      Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are bioelectrochemcial devices that possess a similar design to a fuel cell, with an anode and a cathode connected through an electrical circuit. Unlike fuel cells, MFCs use microorganisms as ...
    • Glucose metabolism of fed, starved and toxaemic pregnant sheep 

      Wastney, Meryl Evelyn (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1980)
      Glucose metabolism was studied in fed, starved and toxaemic ewes in the last month of gestation to ascertain causes of hypoglycaemia, and to determine whether the glucose metabolism of sheep susceptible to ovine pregnancy ...
    • Hexokinase of the rumen microorganism Quins oval 

      Hutchins, N. T. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1970)
      Quin (1943) first noted that the characteristic large gas production observed in sheep fed on high sugar diets of green lucerne, lucerne hay & molasses, was due in the main to the rumen microorganism – Quins Oval – which ...
    • Insulin status and carcass composition of lambs : effects of weaning age and treatment with exogenous insulin 

      Willis, Janine Anne (Lincoln University, 1990)
      Groups of lambs with different insulin profiles were created, either nutritionally or by treatment with exogenous insulin. Lambs were either weaned at 5 weeks of age or remained suckling with access to grass. A subset of ...
    • Metabolic control of wool growth in Romney sheep 

      Dijkstra, Lucretia Henriette (Lincoln University, 1994)
      Wool strength is a heritable trait and varies widely between individuals even when they are maintained under equivalent conditions nutritionally. Consequently, it is valid to search for genetic markers of wool strength ...
    • O-acetylation of cell wall polysaccharides and other factors affecting the digestibility of fescue tussock 

      MacKenzie, R. A. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1978)
      A great deal of research has been done aimed at improving the efficiency of farming ruminant animals in New Zealand and throughout the world. Considerable results have been achieved in the field of animal breeding and also ...
    • Studies of vitamin B₁₂ metabolism in sheep 

      Gruner, Tini Maria (Lincoln University, 2001)
      Vitamin B₁₂ deficiency has been difficult to diagnose, mainly due to the vitamin's lack of biological significance in serum in which it is usually assayed. This research has investigated the marker of vitamin B₁₂/cobalt ...
