Housing system, milk production, and zero-grazing effects on lameness and leg injury in dairy cows.
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of grazing (G) vs. zero-grazing (ZG), level of milk production, and quality and type of housing system [free stalls (FS) and straw yards (SY)] on theExpand

Effect of breeding for milk yield, diet and management on enteric methane emissions from dairy cows
Enteric methane production from livestock is an important source of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. The aim of the present study was to (1) assess the effect of long-term breeding forExpand

Methane emissions among individual dairy cows during milking quantified by eructation peaks or ratio with carbon dioxide.
The aims of this study were to compare methods for examining measurements of CH₄ and CO₂ emissions of dairy cows during milking and to assess repeatability and variation of CH₄ emissions amongExpand

EFFECT OF TWINNING ON THE FEED INTAKE, PERFORMANCE AND HEALTH OF DAIRY COWS
Abstract The aim of this study was to assess the effect of bearing twins on the health and performance of dairy cows. Data from twin-bearing Holstein Friesian cows at the Langhill Dairy ResearchExpand

Variation in enteric methane emissions among cows on commercial dairy farms.
Methane (CH4) emissions by dairy cows vary with feed intake and diet composition. Even when fed on the same diet at the same intake, however, variation between cows in CH4 emissions can beExpand

Effects of genetic line and feeding system on methane emissions from dairy systems
Abstract Improving the efficiency of livestock production is a promising way to reduce CH 4 emissions from farming systems. The aims of this study were to: (1) assess effects of lactation number,Expand

Modelling the Effect of Diet Composition on Enteric Methane Emissions across Sheep, Beef Cattle and Dairy Cows
Simple Summary Enteric methane emissions produced by ruminant livestock has gained global interest due to methane being a potent greenhouse gas and ruminants being a significant source of emissions.Expand

Effects of changing cow production and fitness traits on profit and greenhouse gas emissions of UK dairy systems
The aim of the present study was to compare the effect of changing a range of biological traits on farm profit and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent, CO 2 -eq.)Expand

Does the diurnal pattern of enteric methane emissions from dairy cows change over time?
Diet manipulation and genetic selection are two important mitigation strategies for reducing enteric methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock. The aim of this study was to assess whether theExpand
