Sowing a winter catch crop can reduce nitrate leaching losses from winter-applied urine under simulated forage grazing: A lysimeter study
(Wiley on behalf of the British Society of Soil Science, 2016-09)
Grazing of winter forage crops is a common management option used in the dairy industry of New Zealand, particularly in the South Island, where they are used to feed nonlactating, pregnant dairy cows prior to calving. ...
Can a winter-sown catch crop reduce nitrate leaching losses after winter forage grazing?
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, 2016)
Direct grazing of winter forage crops to feed non-lactating, pregnant dairy cows prior to calving is a common management practice in the New Zealand South Island. However, the high crop yields per hectare grazed, combined ...
Production, profit and nitrogen flows in irrigated dairy systems representing different industry development pathways: The Pastoral 21 experience in Canterbury
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2020-08-26)
Future development pathways for irrigated dairy farms in Canterbury operating under stricter nitrogen (N) loss limits were compared in two farmlets over four years. One represented the traditional pathway of intensification ...
Dry matter intake and body condition score change of dairy cows grazing fodder beet, kale and kale-oat forage systems in winter
Crop dry matter (DM) yield, DM utilisation and body condition score (BCS) of dairy cows were measured over two winters on an irrigated stony, free-draining Balmoral soil for three crop grazing systems: fodder beet (FB); ...
