The low availability and quality of forage during the dry season are the main problems faced by livestock keepers in the tropics and subtropics. One way to alleviate the problems is through the utilization of banana wastes (pseudo-stem, leaf and fruit peel) as feed for ruminants. To generate...

Footrot is a highly contagious disease with significant economic and animal welfare impacts on the small ruminant livestock industry. Host genetics, environmental conditions, nutrition, foot shape and structure, and age contribute to small ruminants' susceptibility to footrot. Selection for footrot ...

Production diseases are a huge problem for high-yielding dairy cows, especially during the post-calving period when a negative energy balance is present and the animals are unable to achieve enough feed energy intake to match their high requests. Correct management of production diseases demands an ...

A holistic statistical modelling procedure for the analysis of energy balance (EB) studies is proposed in this review. We show that a switch from EB-based analysis to heat production (HP)-based analysis has some advantages. The use of augmented EB data with a fasting HP estimate is proposed to...

Camel adaptation to its arid and semi-arid environment and its genetic make-up created some differences in its enzyme systems compared with other domestic animals. The camel is similar to ruminants in most of the diagnostic enzymes used to evaluate liver functions. However, some differences from...
