The effect of feed withdrawal on the meat quality of sheep
(Lincoln University, 2000)
Forty female Perendale lambs (live weight 27.24 Kg ±1.68, approx. 8 months old) were transported for 4h to the Lincoln University farm two days prior to the start of feed withdrawal. On arrival they were weighed, tagged ...
Farm resilience for sustainable food production: a conceptual framework
(Lincoln University, 2008-09)
So far resilience work has mostly focused on regional‐scale, extensively managed ecosystems. Weargue that, as over 40% of the earth’s surface is used for agriculture, it would be fruitful to apply resiliencethinking to ...
A model of magnesium metabolism in young sheep: transactions between plasma, cerebrospinal fluid and bone
(Cambridge University Press, 2004-01)
An extension of the previously proposed model of Mg metabolism (Robson et al. 1997) has been developed to consider the transactions of Mg that are associated with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and bone. The representation of ...

Behavioral responses of European blackbirds and Australasian silvereyes to varying acid and sugar levels in artificial grapes
(American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV), 2009-03)
Diminishing acid concentrations have long been thought to be one of the effects of ripening grapes that leads to increased bird pressure approaching harvest. Blackbirds (Turdus merula) and silvereyes (Zosterops lateralis) ...
Grape phylloxera resource for Central Otago grape growers

The insect is variously called by the scientific names Phylloxera vitifoliae and Daktulosphaira vitifoliae. American and Australian authorities prefer the latter but British authorities the former. Similarly, it is known ...
Leptin concentrations and the immune-mediated reduction of feed intake in sheep infected with the nematode Trichostrongylus colubriformis
(Cambridge University Press, 2009)
The hypothesis that increases in the concentration of the anorectic peptide leptin may be responsible for the immune-mediated reduction in feed intake (FI) during gastrointestinal parasitism in sheep was investigated. In ...
