AbstractFull Text

Total protein conversion efficiency of ruminant production systems is low (between 0.05 for meat and 0.25 for milk), but this calculation usually does not differentiate human-edible from human non-edible feedstuffs (e.g. grass, by-products of food and biofuels industries). To evaluate the net...

Abstract

Ruminants, because of their unique ability to convert forages and byproducts into high quality and nutrient dense foods for human consumption, are expected to fill increasingly significant and sustainable roles in meeting increasing world food demands. In ruminants, a high amount of metabolizable...

AbstractFull Text

Monitoring grazing behaviour is increasingly important for understanding the relationships between production and welfare of ruminants and their nutrition and management, particularly in extensive livestock systems. Methods of assessing behavioural activity have changed in recent years, favouring...

Abstract

The sperm sexing is a biotechnology that consists of the separation of spermatozoa bearing the X or Y chromosome. This technique has been outstanding in animal production, since it has aroused a great commercial interest, due to the possibility of increasing the profitability of the enterprises....

AbstractFull Text

The precision approach to agriculture was first applied in arable farming and involved using GNSS (global navigation satellite system) receivers to map crop growth and/or yield and then apply fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides only where needed (Whelan & McBratney, 2000). The same principle ...

A recent revision of the state of knowledge, principles and examples of breeding programs described as community based (CBBP) indicates that such programs typically relate to low-input systems with farmers having a common interest to improve and share their genetic resources. CBBP are more frequent ...

AbstractFull Text

The global livestock sector significantly contribute to the total anthropogenic GHG emissions, but at the other hand, it can also deliver a significant share of the necessary mitigation effort. Since the ruminants are the main contributor to the livestock sector emission, the aims of this study...
