AbstractFull Text

The ileal digestibility of amino acids and fatty acids in young chickens fed control diet or experimental diets supplemented with freeze-dried pasture herbage at 20 or 40 g/kg was studied. Control diet contained wheat, maize, and soybean meal. Predominant species in the pasture herbage harvested in ...

AbstractFull Text

The objective of this research was to evaluate the chemical composition, selectivity, partial intake, milk production and concentration of urea nitrogen in blood and milk in F1 (Gyr × Holstein) dairy cows on silvopastoral systems with different densities of Leucaena leucocephala trees. The study...

AbstractFull Text

Researchers believe that greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from livestock are an emerging problem. Beef cattle is one of the most emission-intensive sectors, which is responsible for 54% of total GHGs from livestock. This study has two purposes. First, we quantify the environmental loading of U.S....

AbstractFull Text

The relationship between animal behaviour and pasture characteristics needs to be explored to facilitate pasture management. Using Global Positioning System (GPS) data, this paper aims to study the influence of pasture characteristics and time of day on (1) cow distribution in the paddock and (2)...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of the four most typical production systems for Swedish lamb on sensory attributes of meat, including appearance, texture, taste and flavour using an analytical panel. The experiment included four production treatments for weaned intact male lambs:...

AbstractFull Text

Since the nineties, there has been a renewed interest in grasslands for their multifunctionality in the agricultural sector and in society, especially in suburban areas. The objective of this study was to examine whether this new interest has impacted on the way dairy farmers think about forage...

AbstractFull Text

The microbial quality of bovine milk, produced on a pasture-based system on 67 dairy farms, and its influence on milk powder quality were evaluated. The diet of the cows consisted mainly of perennial ryegrass with an additional 2.0 kg DM cow-1 day-1 of concentrates. Milk was sampled from farm bulk...

AbstractFull Text

Sub-optimal mobility in dairy cows has significant economic and environmental consequences which have yet to be extensively researched or quantified for pasture-based systems. While traditionally lameness was defined by a requirement to treat individual cows, sub-optimal mobility is now being used...

AbstractFull Text

In suckler bull beef systems in temperate climates, increasing the proportion of grazed pasture in the animals diet decreases feed costs. This increases slaughter age which may influence beef quality. The effect of extended grazing on compositional and sensory qualities of bull beef was determined. ...
