Simple hierarchical and general nonlinear growth modeling in sheep
(Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK), 2018-08-09)
Differential equations and advanced statistical models have been used to predict growth phenomena. In the present study, general nonlinear growth functions such as von Bertalanffy, Gompertz, logistic, and Brody, along with ...
Dietary phytochemical diversity to enhance health, welfare and production of grazing ruminants, while reducing environmental impact : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Lincoln University
(Lincoln University, 2020)
The objective of the outlined research was to determine how a fermented seaweed extract (SWO) and seaweed plus terrestrial plants (SWP) extract influenced ruminant health, productivity, environmental impacts (i.e. enteric ...
Effect of conception date and hind nutrition on fetal growth trajectory and gestation length of red deer (Cervus elaphus)
(CSIRO Publishing, 2015)
© CSIRO 2015. This study tested the hypothesis that the negative association between gestation length and conception date in red deer is mediated by nutrition. Twenty-eight pregnant red deer were randomly allocated to four ...
Pre-weaning growth of red deer calves is not determined by ability of hinds to produce milk
(CSIRO Publishing, 2012-04-05)
Three experiments were carried out to determine whether growth of suckling red deer calves is determined by the potential of their mothers to produce milk. In the first experiment red deer hinds (n = 10, calves 6 weeks ...
The Happy Factor treatment threshold, used to determine Targeted Selective Treatment decisions for lambs, is transferable between farms
(Elsevier on behalf of the Animal Consortium, 2021-02-13)
Weight gain-based treatment decision-making has been shown to successfully reduce the number of anthelmintic treatments without compromising production as part of a Targeted Selective Treatment (TST)-based worm control ...
