Effects of feeding 3-nitrooxypropanol to lactating dairy cows on methane emissions, animal performance and rumen fermentationDownload
Methane emissions from ruminants are of great concern as they contribute to greenhouse gasses emitted within the atmosphere. The objective of this research was to evaluate a novel biochemical compound, 3-nitrooxypropanol, on its ability to reduce methane emissions and its impact on animal...
Vitamin D Supplementation and Bone Health in Adults with Diabetic Nephropathy: Preliminary Findings from a Randomized Controlled TrialDownload
Vitamin D (vitD) is a nutrient of concern in Canada particularly for those with diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Participants (18-80y) with diabetes and CKD were randomized to receive either 50mcg/day (n=33) or 1,000mcg/month (n=30) vitD3 for 6-months. Variables studied included:...
Adults with class II/III obesity (BMI ≥35 kg/m2) are at increased health risk, and may also present with lower lean mass in relation to excess adiposity, a condition termed sarcopenic obesity. A variety of body composition indices and cutpoints have been used to define this condition, mostly in...
Phosphatidylcholine (PC), the most abundant phospholipid in eukaryotic cells, is an important component of cellular membranes and lipoprotein particles. The enzyme CTP: phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase (CT) regulates de novo PC synthesis in response to changes in membrane lipid composition in...
Ferulic acid constitutes a major constraint to ruminal fibre digestibility. The overall objective of this study was therefore to determine the effects of a first (non-fibrolytic) - or a third (ferulic acid esterase-producing) - generation inoculant on the fermentation characteristics, aerobic...
Abstract The ability to identify and remove sub-fertile boars from the breeding herd is critical to improving reproductive efficiency of pork production systems. Use of semen from sires exhibiting sub-fertility can result in decreased sow pregnancy and farrowing rates, as well as smaller litter...
Mode of action, interaction and recovery of plant secondary metabolites for potential applications as food preservativesDownload
Plants synthesize antimicrobial secondary metabolites that might have potential applications in food and pharmaceutical industries. Waste from food processing including peels, seeds, bark and cereal bran contain high amounts of these compounds. Their recovery from food by-products would be...
Application of intravaginal lactic acid bacteria to lower uterine infections and improve reproductive performance of postpartum dairy cowsDownload
Transition dairy cows are susceptible to uterine infections due to the compromised immunity around calving and substantial bacterial contamination in the uterus immediately after calving. Cows with uterine infections are at higher odds of developing other periparturient diseases, resulting in...
