Metabolisable energy concentration in perennial ryegrass pastures: Multi-site analysis of effects of cultivar, nitrogen fertiliser and white clover content
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-13)
To include metabolisable energy (ME) as a nutritive value factor for ryegrasses in the Forage Value Index (FVI) requires data for New Zealand cultivars on the effects of environmental and management ...
Influence of the endophyte fungus in ryegrass on grazing preference by sheep
(Lincoln University, 1990)
Animal productivity may be enhanced through greater intake associated with the use of preferred pasture species provided they are of high nutritional value. Grazing preference by ewe hoggets was investigated in three grazing ...
Influence of environmental factors on the abundance of naturalised annual clovers in the South Island hill and high country
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2010)
The abundance of four naturalised annual clovers (striated, cluster, suckling, haresfoot) and two sown clovers (subterranean and white clover) was investigated in relation to topographical, soil fertility and management ...
Pasture production and botanical composition of high sugar and control ryegrasses with or without endophyte under irrigation in Canterbury
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2009)
High sugar grasses and novel endophytes are two new technologies promoted for pastoral farmers. While assessing their value for pastoral farming it is important to consider the interactive effects of these technologies on ...
Effect of post grazing residual and concentrate feeding on milk production in early lactation
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2013)
Two strategies to increase nutrient supply to early lactation dairy cows were compared and the cumulative effects on pasture quality and milk production were investigated. In a farmlet experiment the effect of feeding ...
Milk production and urinary nitrogen excretion of dairy cows grazing perennial ryegrass-white clover and pure plantain pastures
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production (Inc), 2016)
Milk production and urinary nitrogen (N) concentration were measured in late lactation dairy cows grazing a perennial ryegrass-white clover pasture, pure plantain and an area that is comprised of 50% perennial ryegrass-white ...
