Development of a forage evaluation system for perennial ryegrass cultivar and endophyte combinations in New Zealand dairy systems
(New South Wales Department of Primary Industry, 2013-09)
An economic index for perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) cultivars is a relatively new concept, although recently introduced in Ireland (McEvoy et al. 2011). By contrast, in dairy cattle breeding, the concept of an ...
Ryegrass staggers and liveweight gain of ewe lambs and hoggets grazing four combinations of perennial ryegrass and strains of endophyte
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2015-06-28)
Ryegrass staggers and live weight gain of Coopworth ewe lambs or hoggets were assessed over four eight week trials (two summer, two autumn) for four combinations of perennial ryegrass and strains of endophyte: Arrow with ...
What perennial ryegrass should you sow?
(South Island Dairy Event (SIDE), 2011-06)

Dietary preference of dairy cows for perennial ryegrass cultivars growing with and without white clover
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2016)
Dietary preference of dairy cows for eight perennial ryegrass cultivars (AberMagic, Alto, Base, Bealey, Commando, Kamo, One50 and Prospect) growing with and without white clover was examined at two vegetative stages (May ...
Effects of N fertilisation, leaf appearance and time of day on N fractionation and chemical composition of Lolium perenne cultivars in spring
(Elsevier B.V., 2012-05-11)
New Zealand dairy systems are based on Lolium perenne pastures with low nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) and high urinary N losses. Modelling attempts to provide solutions to improve NUE are limited due to lack of data on ...
The potential of using alternative pastures, forage crops and gibberellic acid to mitigate nitrous oxide emissions
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016-09)
© 2016, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Purpose: In grazed pastures, nitrous oxide (N₂O), a powerful greenhouse gas and an ozone depletion substance, is mostly emitted from animal excreta, particularly animal urine-N ...
