Nitrogen partitioning differs in sheep offered a conventional diploid, a high sugar diploid or a tetraploid perennial ryegrass cultivar at two feed allowances
Grazing sheep on ryegrass based pasture with elevated water soluble carbohydrate (WSC) concentration might improve N use efficiency and reduce N excretion into the environment. Diploid ryegrasses with elevated WSC have ...
Does mowing before grazing increase dry matter intake and milk yield?
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2016)
Mowing pasture before allocation of herbage to dairy cows is one management strategy suggested to improve feed quality, increase herbage dry matter (DM) intake and increase milk solids yield. To test these hypotheses, ...
Milk production and urinary nitrogen excretion of dairy cows grazing perennial ryegrass-white clover and pure plantain pastures
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2016)
Milk production and urinary nitrogen (N) concentration were measured in late lactation dairy cows grazing a perennial ryegrass-white clover pasture, pure plantain and an area that is comprised of 50% perennial ryegrass-white ...
Milk production and urinary nitrogen excretion of dairy cows grazing plantain in early and late lactation
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of The Royal Society of New Zealand, 2017)
The effects of 50% or 100% of a herbage diet of plantain on milk production and urinary nitrogen (N) concentration were measured in two experiments for late (autumn 2015) and early (spring 2015) lactation dairy cows. Three ...
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 ...
