The effect of stocking rate and calving date on grass production, utilization and nutritive value of the sward during the grazing season
A 2-year whole-farm system study compared the accumulation, utilization and nutritive value of grass in spring-calving grass-based systems differing in stocking rate (SR) and calving date (CD). SixExpand

A comparison of two enzymatic in vitro methods to predict in vivo organic matter digestibility of perennial ryegrass
Abstract Accurate grass organic matter digestibility (OMD) values are required for intake prediction, for calculating metabolisable protein and ultimately to accurately formulate diets. The threeExpand

Generalised tetanus in an unvaccinated adult
A 76-year-old previously well farmer presented having caught his left index finger in a gate. He gave no history of prior tetanus vaccination. The patient was treated in the emergency department; theExpand

Primary mesorectal carcinoid tumour, a case report and review of literature
Carcinoid tumours of unknown origin (CUO) are rare and account for only 10% of carcinoid tumours (1). Utilisation of 68-gallium Dotatate positron emission computerised tomography (PET-CT) offersExpand
The Variation in Morphological Fractions of Perennial Ryegrass Cultivars throughout the Grazing Season and Subsequent Impacts on Organic Matter Digestibility
The grass plant is comprised of leaf blades, leaf sheath (pseudostem), true stem and dead material each differing in digestibility and their relative proportions can impact significantly on swardExpand
AB079. Mesenteric resection is safe and feasible for patients undergoing ileocolic resection for Crohn’s disease
Background: Recently we demonstrated that mesenteric resection is associated with reduced reoperation rates in patients who undergo ileocolic resection for Crohn’s disease, when compared withExpand
AB137. Predictive value of C-reactive protein/albumin ratio in major abdominal surgery
Background: Surgical site infection (SSI) is a major cause of morbidity, resulting in significant healthcare and economic implications. The ability to predict patients at high risk of SSI may enableExpand
AB074. Why ‘Skinny-Fat’ is bad for colorectal cancer: an analysis of body composition, the perioperative human metabolome and five-year colon cancer outcomes
Background: High visceral adiposity (VA) and low skeletal muscle area (SMA) are poor prognostic factors in many cancers. In this study we aimed to characterise the perioperative human metabolomeExpand
AB075. Perioperative cell free DNA trends predict recurrence of non-metastatic colorectal cancer significantly earlier than cea trends over the first two years post-operatively
Background: Changing trends (delta) in carcinoembryonic antigen levels (delta CEA) is accepted as a sensitive marker of disease recurrence following curative resection for colorectal cancer. OurExpand
