Twenty male crossbred Texel lambs were used in a 2 × 2 factorial design experiment to assess the effect of dietary addition of nitrate (2.6% of dry matter) and sulfate (2.6% of dry matter) on enteric… Expand
Rates of production of methane in the rumen and large intestine of sheep.
1. An isotope tracer method for estimating methane production in sheep is described. 2. The technique was used to estimate methane produced in both the upper and lower digestive tract and to… Expand
Duckweed - a potential high-protein feed resource for domestic animals and fish
Summary Duckweeds have received research attention because of their great potential to remove mineral contaminants from waste waters emanating from sewage works, intensive animal industries or from… Expand
Nitrogen metabolism in the rumen.
Nitrogen metabolism is reviewed with emphasis on methods for quantitating various nitrogen-transactions in the rumen of animals on a variety of diets. Ammonia kinetics, microbial cell synthesis, the… Expand
Dynamic aspects of ammonia and urea metabolism in sheep.
I. To obtain a quantitative model for nitrogen pathways in sheep, a study of ammonia and urea metabolism was made by using isotope dilution techniques with ['SN]ammonium sulphate and [Wlurea and… Expand

Two experiments were conducted to study effects of dietary nitrate on enteric methane production, blood methemoglobin concentration, and growth rate in cattle. In Exp. 1, 36 Holstein steers (288 ± 25… Expand
Simultaneous measurements of the rates of production of acetic, propionic and butyric acids in the rumen of sheep on different diets and the correlation between production rates and concentrations of…
1. A technique using a constant infusion of [ U- 14 C]acetate, [U- 14 C]propionate and [2–3-T]– hutyrate has been developed to measure simultaneously the production rates of acetic, propionic and… Expand
