Metabolic control of wool growth in Romney sheep
(Lincoln University, 1994)
Wool strength is a heritable trait and varies widely between individuals even when they are maintained under equivalent conditions nutritionally. Consequently, it is valid to search for genetic markers of wool strength ...
Copper metabolism in small ruminants : with special emphasis on goats
(Lincoln University, 1990)
Twenty-four 1 – 1½year-old castrated Cashmere goats and 24 1½year-old Corriedale wethers were individually penned and offered ryegrass-white clover silage at maintenance level. Mineral content of basal silage was 4.01 mg ...
Hexokinase of the rumen microorganism Quins oval
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1970)
Quin (1943) first noted that the characteristic large gas production observed in sheep fed on high sugar diets of green lucerne, lucerne hay & molasses, was due in the main to the rumen microorganism – Quins Oval – which ...
Studies of vitamin B₁₂ metabolism in sheep
(Lincoln University, 2001)
Vitamin B₁₂ deficiency has been difficult to diagnose, mainly due to the vitamin's lack of biological significance in serum in which it is usually assayed. This research has investigated the marker of vitamin B₁₂/cobalt ...
Comparative aspects of copper metabolism in sheep and deer (Cervus elaphus)
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1986)
Ten yearling red deer stags (Cervus elaphus) and ten yearling Coopwerth wether sheep were offered ryegrass-white clover silage in amounts close to maintenance energy requirement. For six of each species, the diet was ...
Glucose metabolism of fed, starved and toxaemic pregnant sheep
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1980)
Glucose metabolism was studied in fed, starved and toxaemic ewes in the last month of gestation to ascertain causes of hypoglycaemia, and to determine whether the glucose metabolism of sheep susceptible to ovine pregnancy ...
