The effect of feeding maize silage 1 h or 9 h before the herbage meal on dry matter intake, milk production, nitrogen partitioning and rumen function of lactating dairy cows
(CSIRO Publishing, 2016)
The study was conducted to evaluate the effect of the timing of feeding maize silage before a short herbage meal on dry matter (DM) intake, milk production, nitrogen (N) partitioning and rumen function of lactating dairy ...
Infrequent dietary supplementation feeding in beef cattle: Animal responses and factors affecting its success
(CAB International, 2020-06-09)
Infrequent supplementation (IS; i.e., feeding supplement to animals at frequency less than daily) as opposed to frequent (i.e., daily) could be used as a management tool to improve economic returns of extensive beef ...
Short-term grazing and urination behaviour of dairy cows differing in their genetic merit
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2018-10-21)
Breeding cows for improved production and production efficiency may have led to indirect selection for behavioural traits including grazing and urination behavioural patterns. This study investigated the relationship between ...
How does stage of lactation and breeding worth affect milk solids production and production efficiency of grazing dairy cows?
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-03-18)
The study investigated the effect of stage of lactation and Breeding Worth (BW) index on estimated dry matter intake (DMI), milk solids (MS) production, energy use efficiency (EUE) and feed conversion efficiency (FCE) of ...
Effect of time of maize silage supplementation on herbage intake, milk production, and nitrogen excretion of grazing dairy cows
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Dairy Science Association, 2016-09)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of feeding maize silage at different times before a short grazing bout on dry matter (DM) intake, milk production, and N excretion of dairy cows. Thirty-six Friesian ...
Brief communication: Urinary nitrogen excretion and water balance of dairy heifers fed cut plantain or perennial-ryegrass pastures
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2019)
The objective of our study was to quantify the effect of feeding plantain (PL) or perennial ryegrass (RG) to dairy heifers on urinary nitrogen (N) excretion and water balance. In an indoor cut-and-carry system, four Jersey ...
