Prediction of residual feed intake for first lactation dairy cows using orthogonal polynomial random regressionDownload
Residual Feed Intake (RFI) is a measure of energy efficiency. Developing an appropriate model to predict expected energy intake while accounting for multifunctional energy requirements of metabolic body weight (MBW), empty body weight (EBW), milk production energy requirements (MPER), and their...
Genetic parameters for production and feeding behaviour traits in crossbred steers fed a finishing diet at different agesDownload
Because cattle can be raised postweaning under several feeding regimes, this study examined the consistency of phenotypic and genetic parameters of some production and feeding behaviour traits between two feeding periods that beef cattle received a finisher diet. Crossbred steers (n=851) were...
Study of Carcass, organ, muscle, fat tissue weight and concentration in rats fed CLA or its precursors by Principal Component AnalysisDownload
Carcass, organ and muscle weight, and fat tissue data were obtained from 30 weaned male Wistar rats fed one of three diets, (10 rats/diet) over a period of 60 d. The diets were base with synthetic conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), sunflower oil or beef enriched CLA. The CLA diet contained the base...
The objective was to determine if end-of-test residual metabolizable energy intake (RMEI) is correlated with RMEI values calculated earlier in the test on steers fed two forage (silage) or four forage-grain diets. As the days on test increased the variation in RMEI decreased in all diets. In all...
Four Alpine does were used in a 4 × 4 Latin square design to determine the effects of feeding canola oil at four levels: 0, 2, 4 and 6% on milk fatty acid profile. The sum of C12:0 + C14:0 + C16:0(hypercholesterolemic fatty acids) decreased linearly and C18:0 + C18:1: C16:0 (indicator of...
