Abstract: Dissipation of excess pore pressures during piezocone testing in firm to stiff overconsolidated fine-grained soils provides data curves that cannot be interpreted using published theoretical solutions. Available solutions are based on either cavity-expansion or strain-path methods,...
In Western Canada, over 70% of the barley grain grown for malt is sold as livestock feed. The main objective of this thesis was to investigate the relationship between ruminal dry matter digestibility (DMD) and seed hardness (SH) and malting characteristics (MC) of barley grain by measuring in...
Ruminants have the capacity to utilize fibrous plant materials as substrates to provide energy for maintenance and growth. However, digestion of poor quality forage is incomplete in ruminants and varies among individual animals. Consequently, two studies were conducted in an attempt to elucidate...
