Abstract

The loss of productive capacity of pastures has a direct impact on livestock productivity and there is an inefficient use of natural resources. In this scenario, a production strategy that can reverse this degradation is the use of silvopastoral systems. This study aimed to evaluate the animal...

Abstract

Brazil is an agricultural country, with 190 Mha of pastures sustaining 209 million cattle. Fewer than 10% of the cattle are fattened in feedlots, whereas cattle reared on pastures have a competitive advantage for export, eliminating the risks presented by the mad cow disease (bovine spongiform...

Abstract

Several species of Brachiaria (Poaceae) currently cover extensive grazing areas in Brazil, providing valuable source of feed for a large cattle population. However, numerous cases of toxicity outbreaks in livestock have raised concerns on safety of using these plants, especially B. decumbens. In...

Abstract

Corn cropping for silage, due to the plant material exportation, intercropping with forage provides greater ground cover and straw formation for the Direct Planting System (DPS) continuity. The objective of this study was to evaluate corn production for silage in DPS intercropped with four forages...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the preference of forage intake on pastures subjected to doses of N. The experimental design was a randomized blocks, with split plots in 5×3, five N rates (0, 25, 50, 75 and 100 kg ha-1 cycle-1) and three instant of grazing (mass initial estimates) and...

Abstract

Brachiaria brizantha cv. Marandu is the most studied grass for cattle production in pasture. Thus was evaluated the effect of nitrogen levels (0, 20 and 40 mg dm-3 week-1 of N) on agronomic characteristics (dry matter-DM and morphological compounds), morphogenesis (leaf appearance rate [TApF], leaf ...

Abstract

In the beef production chain, pastures are the main food for cattle. However, the productivity of forage presents great variability because of the seasons of Brazil. The use of irrigation on four forage species (Pennisetum purpureum, Cynodon, Panicum maximum and Urochloa brizantha) was evaluated...
