Technical note: Nitrogen isotopic fractionation can be used to predict nitrogen-use efficiency in dairy cows fed temperate pasture
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2013-12)
The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between nitrogen isotopic fractionation (δ¹⁵N) and nitrogen-use efficiency (milk nitrogen/nitrogen intake; NUE) in pasture-fed dairy cows supplemented with ...
Nitrogen partitioning and milk production of dairy cows grazing simple and diverse pastures
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Dairy Science Association, 2013-01)
Research was conducted to examine the effects of a diverse pasture mix on dry matter intake, milk yield, and N partitioning of lactating dairy cows. A pasture containing only ryegrass and white clover (RG), or high ...
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, ...
Supplementing grape marc to cows fed a pasture-based diet as a method to alter nitrogen partitioning and excretion
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Dairy Science Association, 2012-02)
The inclusion of the grape marc into livestock rations provides an opportunity not only to use a waste byproduct resourcefully, but also to induce beneficial metabolic changes in animals. Grape marc contains condensed ...
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 ...
Requirements for zero energy balance of nonlactating, pregnant dairy cows fed fresh autumn pasture are greater than currently estimated
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Dairy Science Association, 2013-06)
Fifty-three nonlactating, pregnant Holstein-Friesian and Holstein-Friesian × Jersey cross dairy cows were grouped into 4 cohorts (n = 15, 12, 13, and 13) and offered 1 of 3 allowances of fresh, cut pasture indoors for 38 ...
