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

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

A major objective in nutritional management of high yielding dairy cows is to reduce degradation of dietary protein by rumen microorganisms. The plant kingdom offers a huge diversity of complex compounds that may modify rumen proteolysis. To screen large sample collections and identify plants...

Abstract

A group of 22 treatments from 6 experiments in which lactating dairy cows were fed diets with different ingredient compositions, and in which the amino acid (AA) profile of their duodenal protein was measured with the same techniques and methodologies, were assembled. Correlative statistics were...

Abstract

The brown midrib (BMR) gene has been reported to reduce the lignin concentration in plants, which contributed to increased fiber digestion in ruminants. Three studies were completed to compare the digestibility of a BMR mutant of sudangrass (sorghum bicolor subsp. Drummondii) versus a non-BMR...
