Abstract

Enteric CH4 emissions from ruminant livestock represent a loss of dietary energy and contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, actually, that is depending on feeding level and diet composition. We calculated emission factors of methane depending to enteric fermentation of Holstein cattle in Andean...

Abstract

Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) is an important source of protein and energy for dairy cattle. To improve the protein/energy ratio of this forage, focus is now on improving its cell wall digestibility. The in vitro assessment of the digestible fraction of the neutral detergent fibre (NDFD) is a ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the seasonal effects on quantity and quality of fodder resources and associated utilization practices among smallholder dairy farmers in Western Usambara Highlands (WUHs) in Tanzania. The WUHs are among the major milk producing areas under smallholder dairy...

Abstract

Daily methane (CH4) emissions (g) and CH4 yield (g/kg dry matter intake) were measured from 10 dairy heifers (<1 year old) and nine rumen-fistulated cows (>6 years old) fed ryegrass (Lolium perenne) chaffage indoors. The CH4 emissions were estimated using the sulfur hexafluoride tracer technique in four ∼5-day periods beginning in June 2008...

Abstract

Strategies to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from dairy cattle are unlikely to be adopted if production or profitability is reduced. The primary objective of this study was to examine the effects of high maize silage (MS) versus high grass silage (GS) diets, without or with added neutral...

Abstract

The composition of tropical grasses as fodder for dairy cattle produces low quality silages without the use of additives. Maize bran additive have been used by smallholder dairy farmers to improve the quality of silages. However, the effect of different levels of maize bran on various grass silages ...

Abstract

The experimental objective was to validate an in vitro model to predict total-tract neutral detergent fiber (NDF) digestibility in dairy cattle. Twenty-one diets from 7 studies conducted at University of Wisconsin-Madison were analyzed for in vitro fiber digestibility. Forages varied among diets...

Abstract

Purpose: Life cycle assessment (LCA) studies of carbon footprint (CF) of milk from grass-based farms are usually limited to small numbers of farms (<30) and rarely certified to international standards, e.g. British Standards Institute publicly available specification 2050 (PAS 2050). The goals...

Abstract

Maize and grass silages are commonly used as major feed materials for dairy cows in Europe and are becoming common parts of dairy cow rations in other parts of the world. The nutritive value of maize and grass silages varies greatly due to variation in chemical composition. A combination of...
