Abstract

The objective of this study was to estimate genetic parameters for dry matter intake (DMI) in prepartum nonlactating and in lactating Holstein cows. Measurements were recorded on cows from Iowa State University (ISU) and the University of Florida (UF) dairy herds. Individual feed intake data were...

AbstractFull Text

Three field trials at three separate locations in Florida were designed to test the hypothesis that soil-applied microbial products can mitigate the effects of huanglongbing (HLB) on citrus tree health and yield. There were six soil amendment treatments: BioFlourish, EcoFriendly, Serenade, Quantum, ...

Abstract

This study was initiated to evaluate performance and patterns of cow traits and blood metabolites of 3 breeds of cows grazing bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flügge) pastures in central Florida. Purebred cows (n=411) of either Angus (Bos taurus), Brahman (Bos indicus), or Romosinuano (Bos taurus)...

Abstract

To assess both the behaviors and social variables related to antimicrobial therapy for clinical mastitis, we sent a survey to 1,700 dairy farms in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Florida in January and February 2013. The survey included questions related to 7 major areas: sociodemographic and farm...
