Liveweight gain and urinary nitrogen excretion of lambs grazing diverse (plantain, Italian ryegrass and red clover) or ryegrass-white clover pasture in autumn
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2020-09)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of grazing a diverse pasture of plantain, Italian ryegrass, and red clover versus a ryegrass-white clover pasture on the liveweight gain (LWG) and urinary nitrogen ...
Grazing and soil fertility effect on naturalized annual clover species in New Zealand high country
(Elsevier on behalf of the Society for Range Management, 2016-11)
With a view to increasing rangeland pasture legume abundance, the herbage biomass and seedling recruitment of four New Zealand naturalized annual clover species (haresfoot clover Trifolium arvense L., suckling clover T. ...
Does sowing an oats catch crop reduce nitrate leaching from urine deposition following simulated winter forage grazing? - a growth chamber experiment
(Springer Verlag for Royal Netherlands Society of Agricultural Science, 2018-10)
Background: Growing winter forages, such as brassicas and fodder beets, is a common feed strategy to build body condition for non-lactating cows, prior to calving, in the temperate regions of New Zealand. However, the large ...
Next generation systems; A framework for prioritising innovation
Primary production industries are constantly changing in response to external factors such as new market opportunities, consumer demands, changing community expectations of the social and environmental outcomes associated ...
Effect of post grazing residual and concentrate feeding on milk production in early lactation
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2013)
Two strategies to increase nutrient supply to early lactation dairy cows were compared and the cumulative effects on pasture quality and milk production were investigated. In a farmlet experiment the effect of feeding ...
Urine volume of non-lactating dairy cows in late gestation fed forage based diets in winter
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2016)
Quantitative information on urine volume of dairy cows fed winter forages is required to accurately evaluate nitrate leaching risks on these diets. Thirty-two Friesian x Jersey non-lactating, pregnant dairy cows were fed ...
