Abstract

Sugarcane bagasse, a lignocellulosic biomass produced by sugar production, is rarely utilized directly due to economic concerns. However, pretreatment of this biomass could make it suitable as a feedstock for the beef cattle industry. Accordingly, this study investigated the effects of different...

Abstract

Objective: Pen and digestibility studies were conducted to analyze the effects of a high-energy programmed feeding protocol on nutrient digestibility, health, and performance of newly received growing cattle. Materials and Methods: In Exp. 1, 354 heifers (initial BW=214±4 kg) consumed diets...

Abstract

We hypothesized that inoculating the rumen of beef cattle with rumen contents of bison and supplementing with exogenous fibrolytic enzymes (FE) would improve ruminal feed digestibility by enhancing microbiome activity in the rumen. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effects of...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of existing models predicting enteric methane (CH4) emissions, using a large database (3183 individual data from 103 in vivo studies on dairy and beef cattle, sheep and goats fed diets from different countries). The impacts of dietary...

Abstract

Objective: The objective of this research was to evaluate the effect of pellet size and the inclusion of binders to increase pellet durability on ruminal fermentation and total-tract digestibility, and pellet utilization when grazing. Materials and Methods: In study 1, 8 ruminally cannulated...

Abstract

Multiple IVDMD methods exist, but information comparing results obtained by different methods is scarce. This study aimed to compare 3 different IVDMD methods [DaisyII (DY), batch culture (BC), and the Ankom Gas Production System (GP)] at 4 incubation times (IT; 12, 24, 36 and 48 h). Additionally,...

Abstract

The experiment investigated the influence of forage drying methods on the dry-matter digestibility of foliage from Cajanus cajan varieties (ICEAP 00557, ICEAP 01514 and CIMMYT100/01). These leaves were harvested at week 20 of growth and either oven- or shade-dried and analysed for chemical...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine whether feeding tannin-containing hays to heifers and mature beef cows influences enteric methane (CH4) emissions and nitrogen (N) excretion relative to feeding traditional legume and grass hays. Fifteen mature beef cows (Exp. 1) and 9 yearling heifers...

Abstract

Objective: Fasting may lead to changes in the microbiota and activity in the rumen. In the present study, the effects of fasting on rumen microbiota and the impact of fasting on in vitro rumen fermentation were evaluated using molecular culture-independent methods. Methods: Three ruminally...

Abstract

Intra-ruminal mixing of separately fed pelleted compound concentrates differing in physical functional properties of pellets was investigated by measuring postprandial starch concentration in rumen medial contents and duodenal starch and protein appearance in dairy cows fed a basal diet low in...
