Abstract

There is a need to develop simple ways of quantifying and estimating CH4 production in cattle. Our aim was to evaluate the relationship between CH4 production and milk fatty acid (FA) profile in order to use milk FA profiles to predict CH4 production in dairy cattle. Data from 3 experiments with...

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

Rate of barley starch digestion in the rumen is critical issue in high-grain fed beef cattle because it is associated with growth performance and health. The digestion rate of starch varies with variety, grain processing or starch content. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of ...

Abstract

The protocol for the National Inventory of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions in The Netherlands includes a dynamic and mechanistic model of animal digestion and fermentation as an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Tier 3 approach to estimate enteric CH4 emission by dairy cows....

Abstract

Emissions of CH4 methane from beef cattle grazing pastures characteristic of northern Australia are yet to be reliably quantified. Poor quality pastures and low animal productivity are typically associated with high CH4 emissions/unit animal product. Our study reports two independent methodologies...

Abstract

There are limited data in the literature concerning in vivo effects of dietary fat supplementation on enteric CH4 emissions from lactating dairy cows. The purpose of this experiment was to evaluate four dietary treatments designated as control (CON), brewers grains (BG), hominy meal and...

Abstract

Anthropogenic CH4 emissions are widely recognised as a world wide problem due to their global warming potential and because they represent a loss of dietary energy to ruminants. Few recent studies have examined medium or long term effects of methanogen inhibitors on rumen functional parameters and...

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to compare the short term measurement (30 min/day for 3 days) face mask system (FM), with SF6 tracer and respiration chamber (RC) techniques for measuring CH4 emissions from crossbred (Holstein × Gyr) yearling bulls fed at three intake levels. Data were...

Abstract

Direct-fed microbials (DFM) have been employed in ruminant production for over 30 yr. Originally, DFM were used primarily in young ruminants to accelerate establishment of the intestinal microflora involved in feed digestion and to promote gut health. Further advancements led to more sophisticated...
