Antimethanogenic activity of macroalga Asparagopsis taxiformis determined

Date
18 June 2019
Abstract

In the last decades, strategies have been evaluated to reduce rumen methane (CH4) production by supplementing tropical forages rich in secondary compounds; however, most of these beneficial effects need to be validated in terms of their persistence over time. The aim of this study was to assess CH4 ...

Abstract

Background: Urea pretreatment is an efficient strategy to improve fiber digestibility of low quality roughages for ruminants. Nitrate and oil are usually used to inhibit enteric methane (CH4) emissions from ruminants. The objective of this study was to examine the combined effects of urea plus...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe energy partitioning in dairy crossbreed bulls fed tropical forage-based diets supplemented with different additives. Twenty F1 crossbred bulls (Holstein x Gyr) with initial and final live weight (LW) averages of 190±17 and 275±20 kg were fed sorghum (Sorghum...

Abstract

The purpose of this experiment was to study the effects of bamboo leaf extract on rumen in vitro fermentation parameters and gas production of dairy cows. The healthy and similar body condition Holstein cows were used as experimental animals for the collection of rumen fluid, and the total mixed...

Abstract

A screening study was conducted to investigate the nutrient composition, anti-nutritional factors, in vitro gas (GP) and methane (CH4) production of leaves and whole pods in tropical multipurpose trees (MPTs). The results indicated that the highest CP (296 g/kg DM) was found in Moringa stenopetala...

Abstract

BACKGROUND: In Experiment 1 we studied the effect of malic acid addition at 0, 1, 2 and 3 mg g-1 dry matter (DM) feed on in vitro ruminal fermentation. In Experiment 2, the effect of supplementing malic acid on feed intake, digestion and milk production and composition of lactating cows was...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of essential oils (EO) from Lippia turbinata (LT) and Tagetes minuta (TM) as well as the rotation of both EO on fermentation parameters in vitro. Daily addition of LT, TM, or a 3-day rotation between them (TM/LT), as well as a control (without ...

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of adding gallic acid (GA) to ruminant diets on long- and short-term in vitro rumen fermentation and methane (CH4) production, and to test possible interactions between GA and ethanol on fermentation. The first experiment was conducted using ...
