Abstract

There is limited knowledge on the effect of barley silage (BS) with different ruminal in vitro neutral detergent fiber digestibility (ivNDFD) on dairy cow performance and chewing activity. The objective of this study was to assess the effects of BS varieties selected for varying rates of ivNDFD on...

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

Fecal nutrients and apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD) were predicted using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) of feces collected from the pen floor or the rectum of feedlot cattle in 2 studies, and pen floor samples were assessed for their ability to predict NEg, ADG, and G:F. In study 1,...

Abstract

In situ and in vitro experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of forage conservation method on the chemical composition, ruminal degradation, and intestinal digestion of purple prairie clover (PPC), which was conserved as freeze-dried forage (FD), silage (SIL), or hay (Hay). In situ dry...

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

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...
