Life cycle assessment of greenhouse gas emissions from beef production in western Canada: A case study
A life cycle assessment (LCA) was conducted to estimate whole-farm greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from beef production in western Canada. The aim was to determine the relative contributions of theExpand

Precipitation Trends on the Canadian Prairies
Abstract The Canadian prairies are a major producer of grain, much of which is produced under rain-fed agriculture. The amount and timing of precipitation are critical to grain production.Expand

Quantifying wind erosion on summer fallow in southern Alberta
ABSTRACT: Wind erosion on summer fallow is a pervasive problem on the semi-arid Canadian prairies. Quantifying soil losses caused by wind erosion in terms of weight of topsoil per unit area has notExpand

A comparison of methods to estimate daily global solar irradiation from other climatic variables on the Canadian prairies
Abstract Historic estimates of daily global solar irradiation are often required for climatic impact studies. Regression equations with daily global solar irradiation, H, as the dependent variableExpand

Methane emissions, feed intake, and total tract digestibility in lambs fed diets differing in fat content and fibre digestibility
Abstract: This study determined enteric methane (CH4) emissions, intake, and apparent total tract digestibility of diets varying in fibre digestibility and fat content. A Latin square design with twoExpand
