Abstract

Dairy heifers need to achieve average daily gains (ADG) that allow them to reach liveweight targets. The aim of this experiment was to measure the effects of grazing 6-month-old dairy heifers on alternative feeds, over the summer period. Sixty 6-month-old Friesian-Jersey crossbred heifers were...

Abstract

Forage brassica and chicory crops provide an alternative to perennial grass pastures as a forage supply for grazing dairy cows during summer, but there is little information about their effects on milk production and methane (CH4) emissions. Thirty-two Holstein-Friesian cows were fed for 10 days on ...

AbstractFull Text

The influence of lucerne hay quality on the milk production potential and milk composition of Jersey cows was investigated. Three different grades of lucerne hay (Prime, Grade 1, Grade 2; selected according to the New Lucerne Quality Index) were included in a total mixed ration (TMR) and fed to...

Abstract

This experiment measured milk production responses of grazing cows offered supplements in different ways. Holstein-Friesian cows averaging 89 days in milk, were allocated into six groups of 36 (each group including three rumen-fistulated cows). Two groups were randomly assigned to each of three...

Abstract

The objective of this experiment was to compare the whole-tract digestibility of dry matter (DM) and nitrogen (N) in Holstein-Friesian dairy cows selected for divergent feed conversion efficiency. The experiment used 16 primiparous Holstein-Friesian dairy cows selected based on their residual feed...

Abstract

We compared 2 types of fattening of Holstein bulls. In the milk fattening (during 13 weeks) the first group received ad libitum MKZ 1 (containing 15% sunflower oil - more unsaturated fatty acids) and the second group MKZ 2 (containing 15% beef tallow - less unsaturated fatty acids), lucerne hay in...

Abstract

The aim of the present work was to study, in dairy goats, the effect of replacing 35% of concentrate in the diet with feed blocks including tomato fruits wastes on CH4 emission, milk yield and fatty acid and amino acid profiles. Eight Granadina goats (39.6±1.89 kg BW) in the middle of the third...

Abstract

This research was conducted in order to evaluate usage of milk replacers produced by domestic milk industry, and feeding calves once per day. Twelve calves were assigned in one of two groups. Groups were equalized by body weight and origin. Female-male ratio was 7:5 in each group. Control group was ...
