Abstract

Whey (SL) spoils, and lactic fermentation is a viable preservation alternative. Once fermented, it can be used to feed ruminants. Therefore, the objective of this study was to chemically characterize whey fermented with Lactobacillus casei (SLF) and use it for calf feeding. Whey was obtained from 9 ...

Abstract

Growth of 15 and 17 European (Holstein-Friesian or American Brown Swiss) × zebu potential sires from birth to 5 years of age was studied. Data sets were statistically analysed by using a sigmoid model equal to y=a+b/(1+exp(-(x-c)/d)) where: y=body growth, kg; a=birth weight, kg; b=mature weight,...

Abstract

Data on test day (TD) milk yield of cows from a dual-purpose herd were analysed by a mixed linear model in order to: choose the appropriate phenotypic (co)variance matrix structure, analyse the existence of trends in variances and covariances over time, and obtain lactation curves for Bos taurus × ...
