Use of Turnip (Brassica rapa var. rapifera) and Rutabaga (B. napus var. napobrassica) for the Improvement of Clubroot Resistance in Spring B. napus CanolaDownload
Clubroot disease, caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae, is one of the most serious threats to spring Brassica napus canola production in Canada. Growing of clubroot-resistant cultivars is the key to control this disease. The genetic base of the Canadian spring B. napus canola for clubroot...
Inadequate nutrition is prevalent among patients with cancer and has a detrimental impact on prognosis. However, development of taste appealing foods targeting specific nutritional requirements of this population has been overlooked and few commercially available products can be found for that...
Use of Rutabaga (Brassica napus var. napobrassica) for the Improvement of Canadian Spring Canola (Brassica napus)Download
Spring-type oilseed Brassica napus L., commonly known as canola, has become the cornerstone of agricultural production in Western Canada, with the total acreage seeded increasing in each production year over the past two decades. However, the narrow genetic base of spring B. napus canola coupled...
High health status in nucleus and multiplication farms at the top of swine breeding pyramid is a barrier to genetic selection of disease resilient pigs. This resulted in a gap between the performance measured in the breeding company and the performance observed at the commercial level. At this...
The use of fatty acid feedstock to produce renewable fuel and value-added chemicals has recently gained a lot of attention. Pyrolysis has been used in fatty acids conversion to yield products with fuel characteristics like fossil fuel equivalent. However, the conventional heating at commercial...
Ruminal acidosis is a persisting digestive disorder in modern ruminant production; however, the susceptibility of cows to ruminal acidosis differs among cows fed a common diet. The overall objective of this research was to evaluate factors affecting the susceptibility of cows to ruminal acidosis....
Understanding the role of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on postpartum reproductive function and embryo development in dairy cowsDownload
The objectives of this work were to investigate the influence of diets enriched in long chain fatty acids on feed intake, calf birth weight, maternal and neonatal fatty acid profiles, milk production, postpartum reproductive function, early embryonic development and its transcriptome profile in...
Understanding the role of dietary phytochemicals and vitamin B12 in host-microbe interactions to support host gut integrity and healthDownload
Diet is a strong modifier of gut host-microbe interactions that alter host physiology and immunity against pathogenic bacteria. Some dietary components are required to support host defences that maintain gut homeostasis and symbiosis, whereas others can be detrimental, leading to changes in...
One hundred and seventy-nine (179) carcasses were surveyed for Longissimus thoracis (LT; rib eye) muscle pH from a commercial abattoir and results demonstrated that specific pH categories existed within the Canada B4 grade carcass population. About 72% of grade B4 carcasses had a muscle pH range...
