AbstractFull Text

The objective was to calculate the methane emission intensity due to enteric fermentation in four groups of small-scale dairy farms in the highlands of central Mexico with different feeding strategies, from equations of Tier 2 recommended by IPCC. Twenty-four farms were evaluated during one year by ...

AbstractFull Text

The objective was to assess the effect of different access times to pasture of grazing dairy cows on milk yield and fatty acid (FA) profile. Six multiparous Holstein cows were used in a repeated 3x3 Latin Square design. Treatments were (1) Eight hours of grazing (8h), (2) Eight hours of grazing...

Abstract

Agrosilvopastoral systems that integrate crops, pastures, trees and shrubs are seen as a way forward to meet future needs for food, feed, fuel, and other products, as well as for providing environmental and social benefits. Cattle production systems in the tropical and subtropical areas of Mexico...

Abstract

The study evaluated small-scale dairy systems with continuous grazing of pastures based on three temperate grasses festulolium (FL), tall fescue (TF), and perennial ryegrass (RG), compared with subtropical kikuyu grass (KG). All pastures were associated with white clover (Trifolium repens L.)....

Abstract

Small-scale dairy systems (SSDS) in Mexico represent over 78% of dairy farms and 37% of milk production. In the central highlands, many SSDS base the feeding of herds on irrigated cultivated pastures (mostly cut-and-carry), straws, and large amounts of commercial concentrates that result in high...

Abstract

Present study was undertaken to evaluate forage options for dairy cows in small-scale dairy systems under lower availability of water for irrigation, using maize silage as sole forage or grazed cultivated pasture plus maize silage. Two groups of 5 Holstein cows balanced in live-weight, parity and...

AbstractFull Text

Small-scale dairy systems (SSDS) are a viable option to ameliorate rural poverty, and in Mexico represent over 78% of dairy farms and provide over 35% of the national milk supply. The economic scale limits the sustainability of SSDS in the highlands of central Mexico, due mainly to high feeding...

Abstract

The use and management of native grassland for dairy production during the rainy season was studied on two small-scale dairy farms in the highlands of central Mexico. Two stocking rates (2 and 4 cows/ha) and two levels of supplementation with commercial concentrate (4 and 6 kg/cow/day) under...

Abstract

Soybean oil is rich in linoleic acid, and - in addition to the contribution of major linolenic acid in fodder - can improve the production of unsaturated fatty acids (AG) in the milk of grazing cows. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of adding soybean oil (0, 3 and 6% BS) in...
