Effect of in-vitro ruminal fermentation and HCL/pepsin digestion on loline
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2019)
Loline, an alkaloid produced by Neotyphodium endophytes in pastoral grass species with potential antimicrobial properties, has several known derivatives; N-formyl loline (NFL), N-acetyl loline (NAL), N-acetyl norloline ...
Sheep performance on perennial lupins at Sawdon Station, Lake Tekapo
A three-year trial compared the performance of Merino ewes grazing on a perennial lupin pasture with a control flock run predominantly on lucerne pastures at Sawdon Station, Lake Tekapo.
Relationships between sheep liveweight production and dry matter yield for lucerne-based pastures in spring
(New Zealand Grassland Association (NZGA), 2019)
A five-year dryland grazing experiment explored the relationship between sheep liveweight (LWt) production and dry matter (DM) yield of lucerne-based pastures in spring. In 2011, a randomised complete block experiment with ...
Milk production and urination behaviour of dairy cows grazing diverse and simple pastures
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2015-07)
Milk production and urination patterns were measured for mid-lactation dairy cows grazing a simple perennial ryegrass-white clover pasture (n = 15) and a more diverse pasture (n = 15) containing herb (chicory and plantain) ...
Supplementation of ewes on pasture to provide an epidemiological benefit for gastrointestinal parasitism
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2018)
The potential epidemiological benefit of reducing the peri-parturient relaxation in immunity to gastro-intestinal nematode parasites through supplementing twin-bearing ewes during the first four weeks of lactation was ...
Supplementation of spring pasture with harvested fodder beet bulb alters rumen fermentation and increases risk of subacute ruminal acidosis during early lactation
In a cross-over design, eight rumen cannulated dairy cows were used to explore the industry-recommended method for dietary transition to fodder beet (FB: Beta vulgaris L.) on changes to rumen fermentation and pH, milk ...
