Ex-vivo cow rumen fluid fermentation: Changes in microbial populations and fermentation products with different forages
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-07-09)
This study investigated the effects of three forage treatments [herbal plantain (PL), ryegrass-white clover pasture (RW) and root crop fodder beet (FB)] on ex-vivo rumen fluid fermentations. Quantitative real-time Polymerase ...
Effects of FABP4 variation on milk fatty-acid composition for dairy cattle grazed on pasture in late lactation
(Cambridge University Press on behalf of the Hannah Dairy Research Foundation, 2020-01-31)
This research communication describes associations between variation in the fatty acid binding protein 4 gene (FABP4) and milk fat composition in New Zealand Holstein-Friesian × Jersey cross dairy cows. After correcting ...
Variation in the toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) gene affects milk traits in dairy cows
(Cambridge University Press on behalf of the Institute of Food Research and the Hannah Research Institute, 2017-11)
The objective of this Research Communication was to use polymerase chain reaction-single stranded conformational polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) analysis to investigate a region of the bovine TLR4 gene (TLR4) in pasture-fed New ...
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, ...
