Sixteen Holstein cows in midlactation were randomly assigned to treatments in a replicated 4 x 4 Latin square. Two levels of CP (16.1 vs. 18.8%) with or without supplemental methionine (0.07 g/100 g of DM) were tested in a 2 x 2 factorial arrangement of treatments. Dry matter intake, milk production, milk composition, and N excretion were determined. No(More)
The objective of this study was to determine whether adding water to a dry diet would reduce sorting and improve cow performance. Eighteen multiparous lactating Holstein cows were used in a cross-over design with 21-d periods. Treatments had the same dietary composition and differed only by adding water (WET) or not (DRY). Diets consisted of 10% alfalfa(More)
Twenty-four lactating Holstein cows were used in a replicated 6 x 6 Latin square design. Experimental periods were 6 or 7 d. Cows were housed in tie-stalls, and diets were fed ad libitum twice daily at 1100 and 1600 h. Diets contained 60% concentrate and either 40% alfalfa hay or 20% alfalfa hay and 20% alfalfa silage (dry matter basis). The effect of(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate production response and more specifically percentage and yield of fat in milk from dairy cows fed distillers grains with added solubles (DGS). It was hypothesized that the oil present in DGS would decrease milk fat yield. Four dietary treatments consisted of dried DGS replacing soybean meal and soybean hulls. The(More)
Twenty lactating Holstein cows (5 primiparous and 15 multiparous) were used in a 5 x 5 Latin Square design, with 5 treatments and 3 periods of 21 d each. Diets contained 25% corn silage, 25% oat silage, and 50% concentrate (dry matter basis). The 5 treatments tested in the experiment were long oat silage (LOS), medium oat silage (MOS), fine from long oat(More)
The objectives of the present study were to compare feed selection in tie- vs. free-stall barns and also to verify possible correlations between feed selection and milk composition. Forty multiparous and 20 primiparous lactating Holstein cows were utilized in a crossover design with 21-d periods. Cows were randomly divided into 2 groups; group 1 was housed(More)
The objectives of this study were to determine how feeding diets that differed in dietary neutral detergent fiber (NDF) concentration and in vitro NDF digestibility affects dry matter (DM) intake, ruminal fermentation, and milk production in early lactation dairy cows. Twelve rumen-cannulated, multiparous Holstein cows averaging 38 +/- 15 d (+/-standard(More)
Poison cases – in which certain people are accused of deliberately administering a toxic substance in food or drink or by touch – have long posed a problem for the government judicial system in Central Equatoria. Poisoning is potentially provable in court on the basis of a material substance, yet it also transgresses the problematic boundary between occult(More)
Member States shall establish zones and agglomerations throughout their territory to assess and manage air quality in order to comply with European directives. In Italy decree 155/2010, transposing Directive 2008/50/EC on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe, merged into a single act the previous provisions on ambient air quality assessment and(More)
