Abstract

Universally applicable empirical equations specific for high- and low-forage diets were developed to improve the prediction of enteric methane production (eCH4) from beef cattle. A database built using treatment means from published beef studies conducted in numerous countries was divided into two...

Abstract

Fecal nutrients and apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD) were predicted using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) of feces collected from the pen floor or the rectum of feedlot cattle in 2 studies, and pen floor samples were assessed for their ability to predict NEg, ADG, and G:F. In study 1,...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to conduct a life-cycle assessment (LCA) of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from a typical nongrazing dairy production system in Eastern Canada. Additionally, as dairying generates both milk and meat, this study assessed several methods of allocating emissions between ...

Abstract

Emissions of CH4 methane from beef cattle grazing pastures characteristic of northern Australia are yet to be reliably quantified. Poor quality pastures and low animal productivity are typically associated with high CH4 emissions/unit animal product. Our study reports two independent methodologies...

Abstract

It was hypothesized that differences in starch degradability account for observed differences in rumen vaccenic acid (t11-18:1) and milk rumenic acid (RA) concentrations. To test this hypothesis, starch degradability was varied through grain source and by processing. Eight Holstein cows in...
