Production, profit and nitrogen flows in irrigated dairy systems representing different industry development pathways: The Pastoral 21 experience in Canterbury
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2020-08-26)
Future development pathways for irrigated dairy farms in Canterbury operating under stricter nitrogen (N) loss limits were compared in two farmlets over four years. One represented the traditional pathway of intensification ...
Herbage dry-matter yield and nitrogen concentration of grass, legume and herb species grown at different nitrogen-fertiliser rates under irrigation
(CSIRO Publishing, 2017)
An important goal in dairy systems is to increase production while achieving environmental targets associated with lower nitrate leaching from soils. One approach is to identify forages that grow more at a given level of ...
Effect of grazing management on herbage protein concentration, milk production and nitrogen excretion of dairy cows in mid-lactation
The objective of this experiment was to use diurnal and temporal changes in herbage composition to create two pasture diets with contrasting ratios of water-soluble carbohydrate (WSC) and crude protein (CP) and compare ...
