Dry Matter, Crude Protein, and Starch Degradability of Five Cereal Grains
Abstract Degradability of starch from corn, milo, wheat, barley, and oats was determined in vitro using a 60-min incubation in a glucoamylase enzyme. Grains were ranked oats, then wheat, barley,Expand
Effects of rumen-undegradable protein on dairy cow performance: a 12-year literature review.
The data strongly suggest that increased RUP per se in dairy cow diets, which often results in a decrease in RDP and a change in absorbed AA profiles, does not consistently improve lactational performance. Expand
Invited review: summary of steam-flaking corn or sorghum grain for lactating dairy cows.
Nineteen lactation trials (43 grain processing comparisons) are summarized, in addition to digestibility and postabsorptive metabolism studies, and based on lactational performance, steam-flaked sorghum grain is of equal value to steam- Flaked corn, and steam-Flaked corn is superior to steam -rolled corn.

Annotated keys to the genera of Nearctic Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera).
This title presents illustrated keys to the 19 families and 706 described genera of Chalcidoidea known to occur in the Nearctic region. There are approximately 330 differences between the generaExpand
Influence of nutrition of mammary development in pre- and postpubertal heifers.
A critical period for total mammary cell number in heifers during which mammary growth is affected adversely by a high plane of nutrition is suggested. Expand
The Australian genera of Mymaridae (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea)
The genera of Mymaridae occurring in Australia are keyed and a diagnosis for each is given. Forty-five nominal genera are recognized, including three new ones: Kompsomymar Lin and Huber, gen. nov.,Expand
Relationship between dietary fat supplementation and milk protein concentration in lactating cows: A review
Abstract Changes in protein concentration in milk of dairy cows resulting from supplementation of diets with fat reported during the last two decades have been compiled, and the existing literatureExpand
A phylogenetic analysis of the megadiverse Chalcidoidea (Hymenoptera)
The first phylogenetic analysis of the superfamily Chalcidoidea based on both morphological and molecular data is presented and several life‐history traits are mapped onto the new phylogeny. Expand
Effects of ground, steam-flaked, and steam-rolled corn grains on performance of lactating cows.
The fat content of milk was higher for cows fed the diets containing coarsely ground corn and steam-rolled corn than for cows feeding the diet containing steam-flaked corn at a medium density and fine grinding resulted in the greatest efficiency of feed utilization. Expand
