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...
Land management practices are known to influence runoff through alteration of the antecedent soil water For accurate estimation of runoff, direct measurement of antecedent soil water would be necessary. This study investigated antecedent soil water and the potential for summer storm runoff under...
Residual feed intake (RFI) is a moderately heritable trait that can be used to measure feed efficiency in beef cattle, and thereby reduce feed related costs. RFI has been primarily evaluated under drylot conditions where diet, feed intake and activity levels are controlled and foraging behaviour...
Recovery of Legumes in Northern Temperate Pastures Following the Application of Broadleaf HerbicidesDownload
Field and greenhouse trials were conducted to assess the breakdown of soil residues of two broadleaf herbicide bioactives, aminopyralid and aminocyclopyrachlor, as well as associated legume reestablishment/recovery and pasture sward production dynamics. Greenhouse trials indicated legume seedling...
