Purine derivative excretion and ruminal microbial yield in Malaysian cattle and swamp buffalo
The difference in allantoin and total purine excretion rates between KK cattle and swamp buffalo given the same diet and level of feeding is apparently the result of physiological and/or ruminal microbial differences between the species.
Vermicomposting of cattle and goat manures by Eisenia foetida and their growth and reproduction performance.
Cattle manure provided a more nutritious and friendly environment to the earthworms than goat manure, and the hatchability of cocoons was not affected by manure treatments.
Effect of antibiotics on methane arising from anaerobic digestion of pig manure
Abstract Laboratory scale digesters were used to study effects of tetracycline (TC) and sulfamethoxydiazine (SMD) on CH 4 production from anaerobic digestion of pig manure at 25 °C. Tetracycline and
Nutritive Value of Wheat Straw Treated with Pleurotus Fungi
The in situ degradability and in vivo digestibility of DM and OM were significantly increased in treated straws with the highest values observed for treatment P-41, and the intake of DM, OM and digestible organic mater (DOM) were significantly increase in cows fed FTWS.
Effects of Enzyme Treated Palm Kernel Expeller on Metabolizable Energy, Growth Performance, Villus Height and Digesta Viscosity in Broiler Chickens
Results of this study suggest that exogenous enzyme is effective in hydrolyzing the fiber (hemicellulose and cellulose) component and improved the ME values of PKE, however, the above positive effects were not reflected in the growth performance in broiler chickens fed the enzyme treated PKE compared to those received raw PKE.
Molecular Weight, Protein Binding Affinity and Methane Mitigation of Condensed Tannins from Mangosteen-peel (Garcinia mangostana L)
The results show that protein binding affinity of CT from mangosteen-peel is lower than those reported for Leucaena forages, however, the former has stronger negative effect on IVDMD, therefore, the use of mangOSTeen- peel as protein source and CH4 mitigating agent in ruminant feed requires further investigations.
The Potential of Mulberry (Morus alba) as a Fodder Crop: The Effect of Plant Maturity on Yield, Persistence and Nutrient Composition of Plant Fractions
It was concluded that the optimum stage to harvest the whole plant is 5 weeks, which is a compromise between yield, nutrient composition (CP and fibre components), and the annual number of cuts, with good crop persistence to repeated harvests.
An evaluation of beta-hydroxybutyrate in milk and blood for prediction of subclinical ketosis in dairy cows.
The results showed that the best time to assess SCK using the commercial keto-test paper was d 10, 14 and 17 after calving, which showed the milk yield of cattle with SCK decreased but the fat percentage and milk fat: protein ratio increased.
