The effects of feeding maize silage at different times prior to an herbage meal on dry matter intake, milksolids production and nitrogen excretion in late-lactation dairy cows
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2015-06)
The objective of this study was to determine the effect of feeding maize silage at different times before the herbage meal on dry matter (DM) intake, milksolids (MS) production and nitrogen (N) excretion of late lactation ...
Effects of feed intake and genetics on tissue nitrogen-15 enrichment and feed conversion efficiency in sheep
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2015-12-01)
This study investigated the effects of sheep genetics and feed intake on nitrogen isotopic fractionation (Δ15N) and feed conversion efficiency (FCE; live weight gain/DMI), using a 2 × 2 factorial design, with 2 levels of ...
Variation in the bovine FABP₄ gene affects milk yield and milk protein content in dairy cows
(Scientific Reports, 2015-06-12)
Fatty acid binding proteins (FABPs) bind long-chain fatty acids and are involved in their intracellular transport. Of the known bovine FABP genes, FABP₄ has been mapped to a region on chromosome 14 that contains quantitative ...
