Effects of feed intake and genetics on tissue nitrogen-15 enrichment and feed conversion efficiency in sheep
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2015-12-01)
This study investigated the effects of sheep genetics and feed intake on nitrogen isotopic fractionation (Δ15N) and feed conversion efficiency (FCE; live weight gain/DMI), using a 2 × 2 factorial design, with 2 levels of ...
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 ...
Haplotypic variation in the UCP1 gene is associated with milk traits in dairy cows
(American Dairy Science Association, 2016-10-03)
Uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1) plays a role in the regulation of body temperature, metabolic rate and energy expenditure in animals. While variation in UCP1 and its phenotypic effect has been investigated in humans and sheep, ...
