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 ...
The effects of dietary nitrogen to water-soluble carbohydrate ratio on isotopic fractionation and partitioning of nitrogen in non-lactating sheep
(Cambridge University Press (CUP) on behalf of the Animal Consortium, 2013-08)
The main objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between partitioning and isotopic fractionation of nitrogen (N) in sheep consuming diets with varying ratios of N to water-soluble carbohydrate (WSC). ...
Technical note: Nitrogen isotopic fractionation can be used to predict nitrogen-use efficiency in dairy cows fed temperate pasture
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2013-12)
The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between nitrogen isotopic fractionation (δ¹⁵N) and nitrogen-use efficiency (milk nitrogen/nitrogen intake; NUE) in pasture-fed dairy cows supplemented with ...
Requirements for zero energy balance of nonlactating, pregnant dairy cows fed fresh autumn pasture are greater than currently estimated
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Dairy Science Association, 2013-06)
Fifty-three nonlactating, pregnant Holstein-Friesian and Holstein-Friesian × Jersey cross dairy cows were grouped into 4 cohorts (n = 15, 12, 13, and 13) and offered 1 of 3 allowances of fresh, cut pasture indoors for 38 ...
Nitrogen partitioning and milk production of dairy cows grazing simple and diverse pastures
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Dairy Science Association, 2013-01)
Research was conducted to examine the effects of a diverse pasture mix on dry matter intake, milk yield, and N partitioning of lactating dairy cows. A pasture containing only ryegrass and white clover (RG), or high ...
