Abstract

First lactation data on 528 cows sired by 98 sires maintained at National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal over a period of 26 years (1986-2011) were used to estimate heritability and breeding value of the first lactation 305-day or less milk yield and 4 fertility traits like age at first calving...

Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of Streptococcus bovis on the fermentation characteristics and nutritive value of Tanzania grass silage. Tanzania grass was chopped and left untreated (U) or treated with Streptococcus bovis JB1 at 1×106 colony-forming units per gram (cfu/g) of fresh forage...

Abstract

The effect of Synchro-mate-B (SMB, ear implant containing 6 mg norgestomet) was measured on the oestrous response and the establishment of cyclicity using different calf stimuli. Multiparous Zebu cows, were divided in three groups. In the first, 32 animals were treated with SMB leaving the calves...

Abstract

Three experiments were conducted to evaluate the response of supplementing primiparous heifers based on the metabolizable protein (MP) system during pregnancy and lactation. In Exp. 1, 12 pregnant, March-calving heifers (432±10 kg) grazing Sandhills range were randomly allotted to one of two...

Abstract

Metabolizable protein (MP) requirements of spring calving heifers increase over the winter due to advancing gestation. The MP content of grazed winter forage is low, which may result in an MP deficiency. The objective was to compare the response of supplementing pregnant yearling heifers to meet MP ...

Abstract

The reduced per capita availability of pulses to as low as 29.1 g per day during 2003 as against the dietary recommendation of 72 g per capital/day has resulted in problems of protein security, which has become more critical than ensuring calories due to prevalence of high degree of malnutrition ...
