AbstractFull Text

This study aimed to simulate data to the weight of boar and pig sows (1 to 154 days old) through the uniform probability distribution on an interval. Five regression models (logistic, hyperbolic tangent, power, gamma and cubic polynomial) were adjusted to account for the possible weight ratio to...

AbstractFull Text

Gastronomy is an important form of cultural distinctiveness of a country. In the age of selective forms of tourism, more attention is paid to emphasizing a country's indigenous gastronomic offer. The island of Pag is since long ago known as an island of sheep breeding. Due to its geographic...

AbstractFull Text

A two-year grazing study compared the effect of supplementary grazing of alfalfa, birdsfoot trefoil (BFT) or feeding concentrated feed on the performance of pasture-fed suckling lambs. Continuously stocked Anatolian merino lambs with their dams on pastures rotationally grazed the adjacent alfalfa...

AbstractFull Text

Subterranean clover pastures (SC) have a higher nutritive value than Portuguese natural pastures (NP). However, this assumption does not include anti-quality factors and intake (determined by stocking rates - SR). Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that advantages of SC over NP are different if we ...

AbstractFull Text

The decision to purchase a specific food, especially in developed countries, is increasingly influenced by its putative 'healthiness'. In the case of meat, this is largely related to its fatty acid (FA) composition. Animal feeding strategies play a major role in determination of meat FA and...

AbstractFull Text

This paper presents data and discusses work being conducted in Australia to improve the feeding value of drought-tolerant shrubs through simple plant selection. The programme targets saline, sandy and infertile soils in low rainfall zones that are marginal for cropping. The shrubs are used to...

AbstractFull Text

In view of the decline in the number of farmers and the ongoing shrub encroachment on mountain pastures the valorisation of products and services provided is gaining importance for the conservation of alpine and subalpine ecosystems. Alnus viridis comprises 70% of the shrublands in Switzerland and...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to evaluate effects of different production models in Swedish lamb production on live weight gain (LWG), carcass quality and meat quality. The experiment included four production models for weaned male lambs: (group 1) indoor feeding; (group 2) grazing on cultivated ...

AbstractFull Text

Dairy farmers in mountainous areas tend to use high amounts of bought concentrate feed, whereas their milk production is low. Furthermore, the recent European milk crisis has shaken up farmers and farm management strategies, particularly for feeding cattle. We surveyed 18 farmers in the mountains...

AbstractFull Text

For estimating quality and intake of pasture herbage by grazing goats, estimation of herbage digestibility is often required. The aim of this work was to predict in vivo organic matter digestibility (OMD) of diets based on temperate pasture forage from faecal composition (CP mainly). A series of...
