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

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

Use of antibiotics as growth promoters in animal feeds has been banned in the European Union due to increasing concerns about the appearance of residues in meat and milk and antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. Some essential oils (EO) modify rumen microbial activity and appear to be a...

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

Two experiments were conducted to evaluate Se accumulation and health of non-pregnant, non-breeding beef cattle grazing on forages with a high Se content due to irrigation with saline drainage water. Heifers grazed experimental pastures of "Jose" tall wheatgrass (TWG; Thinopyrum ponticum var....

Abstract

The objective was to measure effects of cooling technique (shade vs. water sprinklers) on performance, behavior, physiology, and the environmental effect of 40 Holstein heifers housed in drylot corrals during the hot summer months. The experiment was a replicated crossover design with four 21-d...

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...
