Effects of social dominance on milk production and grazing behaviour of lactating dairy cows : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Lincoln University
(Lincoln University, 2019)
In this study, three experiments were conducted to determine factors influencing social dominance in lactating, grazing dairy cows. Additionally, we investigated the effect of separating cows, based on social dominance, ...
Irrigation effects on soil organic carbon under a ryegrass-white clover pasture on a Lismore stony silt loam soil : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Lincoln University
(Lincoln University, 2020)
Long-term summer irrigation of temperate managed pastures has been reported to either increase or decrease soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks when compared with dryland systems. Understanding the short-term effects of ...
Causes of leaf reddening in subterranean clover cultivars
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2020-04-30)
Subterranean clover (Trifolium subterraneum L.) is an important legume in dryland hill pastures in New Zealand. In this environment plants adapt to low temperatures (<10°C) through a series of physiological mechanisms, ...
Animal and forage responses on lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) pastures under contrasting grazing managements in a temperate climate
(Wiley on behalf of the British Grassland Society and the European Grassland Federation, 2020-06)
This study determined the impact of a change in grazing system on beef production from lucerne pastures in Argentina. One system (T500) used the traditional recommendation to commence grazing in spring when lucerne was ...
Identification and quantitation of major structural proteins from enriched cuticle fractions of wools of different breeds
(Taylor and Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2015)
The cuticle plays an important role in determining characteristic traits of wool fibres, but little is known about the identity and abundance of its proteinaceous constituents and whether there are unique differences in ...
Measuring excreta patch distribution in grazed pasture through low-cost image analysis
(Wiley on behalf of the British Grassland Society and the European Grassland Federation, 2013-09)
Nutrient losses from grazed pasture are an important non-point source of water pollution. The distribution of animal urine patches on pasture is an important factor in determining nitrate losses and influencing pasture ...
