In vitro fermentation characteristics of ryegrass-white clover sward containing different proportions of chicory
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2017)
Chicory (Cichorum intybus) is a deep-rooted grazeable forage used to overcome production and nutritive value shortfalls of perennial ryegrass (Loliun perenne) and white clover (Trifolium repens) swards during summer drought ...

(CAB International, 2020-06-09)
Infrequent supplementation (IS; i.e., feeding supplement to animals at frequency less than daily) as opposed to frequent (i.e., daily) could be used as a management tool to improve economic returns of extensive beef ...
Short-term grazing and urination behaviour of dairy cows differing in their genetic merit
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2018-10-21)
Breeding cows for improved production and production efficiency may have led to indirect selection for behavioural traits including grazing and urination behavioural patterns. This study investigated the relationship between ...
Effect of time of maize silage supplementation on herbage intake, milk production, and nitrogen excretion of grazing dairy cows
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Dairy Science Association, 2016-09)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of feeding maize silage at different times before a short grazing bout on dry matter (DM) intake, milk production, and N excretion of dairy cows. Thirty-six Friesian ...
