Evaluation of performance and carcass traits for a five-cohort All Heifer, No Cow beef production system demonstration herd
The All Heifer, No Cow (AHNC) beef production system is an alternative to con ventional cow/calf production that involves in semination of nulliparous heifers with sexed semen to produce female calves that are early ...
Effects of calcium-magnesium carbonate and calciummagnesium hydroxide as supplemental sources of magnesium on ruminal microbiome
Our objective was to evaluate the inclusion of calcium-magnesium carbonate [CaMg(CO3 ) 2 ] and calcium-magnesium hydroxide [CaMg(OH)4 ] in corn silage-based diets and their impact on ruminal microbiome. Our previous ...
Effects of neutral detergent fiber digestibility estimation method on calculated energy concentration of canola meals from 12 Canadian processing plants
Our aim was to determine whether the method used to estimate truly digestible neutral detergent fiber (tdNDF) affects calculated concentrations of total digestible nutrients (TDN1x) and net energy of lactation (NEL3x) of ...
Effects of commercial and farm-made inoculants on the chemical composition and fermentation of kikuyu grass silages
Ensiling allows for more efficient pasture utilization in kikuyu (Cenchrus clandestinus Hochst. ex Chiov.)-based forage systems. However, the chemical composition of kikuyu challenges this process. Additives can improve ...
Shrink, weighing accuracy, and weighing precision of mineral supplement in five commercial dairies in the Western United States
Shrink, accuracy, and precision of ingredient weighing are critical factors of effi ciency in TMR-fed dairy systems. Those factors have been evaluated for major feeds; however, we are not aware of any reports for ...
Effects of unprotected choline chloride on microbial fermentation in a dual-flow continuous culture depend on dietary neutral detergent fiber concentration
Choline is usually supplemented as ruminally protected choline chloride to prevent its degradation in the rumen, but the effects of unprotected choline on ruminal fermentation are unclear. Some research indicates a ...
Effects of partially replacing dietary corn with molasses, condensed whey permeate, or treated condensed whey permeate on ruminal microbial fermentation
Corn is a feedstuff commonly fed to dairy cows as a source of energy. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether partially replacing dietary corn with molasses or condensed whey permeate, in lactating dairy ...
Efecto del picado sobre las características nutricionales y fermentativas de ensilajes de pastos kikuyo, ryegrass perenne y alpiste forrajero
Effect of chopping on the nutritional and fermentative characteristics of kikuyu, perennial ryegrass and reed canary grass based silages
Se evaluó el efecto del picado sobre las características nutricionales y fermentativas de ensilajes elaborados con 3 pastos (kikuyo, ryegrass perenne y alpiste forrajero). Se elaboraron 2 microsilos de cada pasto en bolsas ...
Effects of lactic acid-producing bacteria as direct-fed microbials on the ruminal microbiome
The objective of this study was to evaluate ruminal microbiome changes associated with feeding Lactobacillus plantarum GB-LP1 as direct-fed microbials (DFM) in high-producing dairy cow diets. A dual-flow continuous culture ...
