Quantifying the influence of sward height, concentrate level and initial milk yield on the milk production and grazing behaviour of continuously stocked dairy cows
Two factorial design experiments were carried out in the spring of 1994 and 1995, each of 6 weeks, to quantify the effects of sward height (SH), concentrate level (CL) and initial milk yield (IMY) onExpand
Continuous and rotational grazing of dairy cows--the interactions of grazing system with level of milk yield, sward height and concentrate level
An experiment was conducted to test the hypothesis that for cows with high levels of milk yield, rotational grazing produces higher milk yields than continuous grazing. The comparison of grazingExpand
The effect of pasture allowance and concentrate supplementation type on milk production performance and dry matter intake of autumn-calving dairy cows in early lactation
Abstract This study was undertaken to evaluate the influence of daily pasture allowance and concentrate type on milk production performance, dry matter intake, grazing behavior and blood and urinaryExpand
Effect of timing of pasture allocation on production, behavior, rumen function, and metabolism of early lactating dairy cows during autumn
Abstract The objective of the present study was to evaluate the effect of timing of pasture allocation on performance, feeding behavior, rumen function and plasma and urine metabolites ofExpand
Productive and metabolic response to two levels of corn silage supplementation in grazing dairy cows in early lactation during autumn
Corn (Zea mays L.) silage (CS) is a nutritious food that can be used as a supplement in dairy cows. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of supplementation with two amounts of CS on milkExpand
Effect of increasing pasture allowance and grass silage on animal performance, grazing behaviour and rumen fermentation parameters of dairy cows in early lactation during autumn
The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of daily pasture allowance and grass silage supplementation on milk production performance, grazing behaviour, rumen function, and blood andExpand
Milk production, grazing behavior and nutritional status of dairy cows grazing two herbage allowances during winter
Winter grazing provides a useful means for increasing the proportion of grazed herbage in the annual diet of dairy cows. This season is characterized by low herbage growth rate, low herbageExpand
Evaluation of blood metabolites in dairy cows grazing under two pasture allowances and supplemented with corn silage under restricted grazing conditions
This study was conducted to evaluate the influence of management tools - daily pasture allowance and corn silage supplementation - during periods of forage shortage on the metabolism of dairy cowsExpand
Preliminary behavioural study of Caballo Fino Chilote stallions with restricted access to space and water during summer
The Caballo Fino Chilote (CFCh) is the only Chilean pony breed and a unique genetic resource. A group of seven CFCh stallions were observed for 60 hours, dur...
Rumen degradation characteristics of the herbage mass samples and the simulated grazing samples for dairy cows
An experiment was carried out in order to describe the ruminal degradation characteristics of forages, in herbage mass samples (FD) and in simulated grazing samples (FS), obtained at two swardExpand
