Abstract

The temperature humidity index (THI) has been extensively used in the Australian dairy industry as an indicator of heat load conditions. However, there are limitations to the THI, where it does not account for solar radiation or wind speed. In addition, the THI has not been formulated in...

Abstract

The efficiency of microbial protein synthesis (EMPS) in cattle grazing a range of tropical pasture types was examined using a new method of intra-jugular infusion of chromium-EDTA to estimate urinary excretion of purine derivatives. Seven pasture types were studied in south-eastern Queensland,...

Abstract

Guardian animals have been a common non-lethal method for reducing predator impacts on livestock for centuries in Europe. But elsewhere, livestock producers sometimes doubt whether such methods work or are compatible with modern livestock husbandry practices in extensive grazing systems. In this...

Abstract

The rumen of the dairy cow contains a rich and diverse collection of microbes that during feed digestion produce significant quantities of methane gas and ammonia, both of which contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. Strategies to redirect rumen carbon and nitrogen metabolism away from these...

Abstract

Genetic progress depends on accurate knowledge of the genetic composition of a population or herd including level of inbreeding and parentage. However, in many circumstances, such as at an individual property level, the relationships between animals may be unknown, or at best, only partly known. In ...

Abstract

A grazing experiment in the seasonally dry tropics of north Queensland examined the diet selected and the growth responses of Bos indicus steers to urea supplement over two dry seasons and one wet season, from August 2001 to January 2003. There were two groups of 10 steers (control and...
