A comparison of reproductive and growth traits of horned and polled cattle in three synthetic beef linesDownload
One hundred and thirty-seven cow-calf pairs on pasture in southeastern Alberta, were randomly allocated to one of two treatments no supplement (NOS) or a high by-pass protein (70% of CP) creep supplement (HPS) at an intake of 1.5 kg head−1 d−1. Calf weaning weights and pre-weaning ADG were higher...
Phenotypically dehorned (genetically horned) and polled bulls were similar for birth, weaning weight, pre- and post-weaning ADG, carcass weight, grade fat, marbling, rib-eye area, cutability and carcass grade. Polled bulls had higher (P < 0.02) fat over the rib-eye compared with dehorned. The...
Aesthetic Economies of Growth; Energy, Value, and the Work of Culture After Oil offers a cultural history of energy after the industrialization of fossil fuels. My argument is that the political economy of fossil fuels, and the climate change it generates, is anchored to energy’s aesthetic...
Age determination of a long-lived coregonid from the Canadian North: comparison of otoliths, fin rays and scales in inconnu (Stenodus leucichthys)Download
We examined otoliths, pelvic fin rays and scales of inconnu to determine precision of age estimates within and between readers, and to compare relative accuracy of estimates from different structures. Our main objective was to determine if readability and estimates from fin rays and scales,...
Allometric association between in vivo estimation of body composition during growth using deuterium dilution technique and chemical analysis of serial slaughtered pigsDownload
The objective of this study was to develop accurate mathematical-statistical functions to estimate body composition of live pigs between 20 and 140 kg weight from total body water (TBWA) determined by the deuterium dilution technique. Chemical body compositions during the growth period are...
Anterior and Middle Cranial Base Growth and Development Changes as Assessed Through CBCT Imaging in AdolescentsDownload
Introduction: In this study three dimensional Cone beam computed tomography is used to evaluate intra-rater, inter-rater and accuracy of selected 3D landmarks of anterior and middle cranial bases. Growth related dimensional changes of anterior and middle cranial base structures are then assessed ...
Application of a biomechanical finite element spine model to the vicious cycle scoliosis growth theory: evaluation of improved FEA geometry and material assignmentDownload
Scoliosis is defined as the abnormal three dimensional curvature of the spine with 80% of all cases being idiopathic in nature. If left unchecked, this condition can cause cardio-pulmonary complications and occasionally death. Currently, the most common method of treatment of scoliosis is through...
Choline demands during lactation are high; however, detailed knowledge is lacking regarding the optimal dietary intake during this critical period. The present study was designed to determine the effects of varying intakes of choline on maternal immune function during lactation. Primiparous...
Density-dependent constraints on parasite growth, survival or reproduction are thought to be important in preventing the unchecked increase in parasite numbers within individual hosts or host populations. While it is important to know where, and with what severity, density dependence is acting...
