Comparison of Objective External Carcass Measurements and Subjective Conformation Scores for Prediction of Lamb Carcass QualityDownload
Carcass measurements were collected from 1505 lambs over a 2-yr period by a single technician. The lambs (rams, ewes and wethers) were classified as either meat-type or wool-type, with meat-type subdivided by frame size into light, medium or large. Carcass measurements included carcass length...
Fluxgate magnetometers are an essential tool for solar-terrestrial research and monitoring or forecasting space weather. They provide high precision measurements of the Earth’s magnetic fields and can be used to infer the currents that transport energy and momentum through the magnetosphere and...
A technique is described for meausuring increases in bone length during defined periods before slaughter in cattle. It consists of jugular infusions of oxytetracycline at specified time intervals. Oxytetracycline identifies the sites of ossification in growing bones at the time of infusion by...
Background: Health-care organizations need to be ready prior to implement evidence-based interventions. In this study, we sought to achieve consensus on a framework to assess the readiness of health-care organizations to implement evidence-based interventions in the context of chronic care....
SSHRC IG awarded 2018: Consumption (purchases) is considered one of the best metrics of individual and household well-being. Economists typically assume households elect to smooth their consumption, so as to insure against shocks such as disability or unemployment. The current state-of-the-art...
There is a general agreement that a relationship exists between health literacy (HL) and health outcomes. Nonetheless, there are critical gaps in the measurement of HL and in the evidence on the impact of inadequate HL on health outcomes, especially in the diabetes population. These gaps need to...
Technical report TR09-12. Optimal utility-based congestion control is an optimization approach to congestion control problems where the objective is to maximize the aggregate source utility over their transmission rates. It has been used to analyze Internet congestion control schemes. In this...
Introduction: Integration has been advanced as a strategy for the delivery of a number of human services that have traditionally been delivered by autonomous agencies with independent processes and funding sources. However, measurement of the dimensions of integration has been hampered by...
