AbstractFull Text

In this study we evaluated the effects of gradual transitioning from indoor winter-feeding to outdoor grazing, 8 to 11 h daily, on methane emission and milk yield in an organic Jersey herd in Denmark. A total of 151 mixed-parity lactating Jersey cows with free access to automated milking stations...

AbstractFull Text

The present paper describes how NorFor has been updated with a climate module that integrates GHGE from animals and feed production. Examples are given on how much carbon footprint (CFP) on milk can be reduced from different rations/feedstuffs to lactating cows. In order to investigate what the CFP ...

AbstractFull Text

The main aim of this study was to identify potential relationships between chemical compounds (protein, fat, urea) in milk from dairy cattle, milk yield and distinct plant groups in the diet when grazing on alpine rangelands. Two herds in two different summer farming areas were studied during three ...

AbstractFull Text

In Scandinavia, pasture for dairy herds with automatic milking (AM) is frequently offered purely for exercise and recreation, rather than as a feed-source. In the present study, cows in an AM-system with 12 h nightly outdoor-access from summer solstice until mid-September were offered either fresh...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study is to examine the effects of milled rapeseed on milk fat composition and ruminal methane emissions of dairy cows on grass silage based diets of high digestibility. Whole Finnish Ayrshire herd in milk was fed a control diet for 3 weeks (Period 1) followed by rapeseed lipid-rich ...

AbstractFull Text

The summer of 2018 was the driest for more than 60 years, reducing Norwegian production of grass for feed with around 25% compared to the last 10 years average (SSB, 2019), whereas Norwegian production of cereal grains for feed were almost halved compared to an average year. With this scenario a...

AbstractFull Text

We assessed milk production with 24 mid-lactation Norwegian Red dairy cows on a spring pasture dominated by timothy (Phleum pratense) for a period of 21 days using three pasture allocation techniques (n=8). Cows received weekly allowances at once (7 day-set-paddocking; 7SP), grazed 1/7 of 7SP...
