Vernalization response genes are known to contribute indirectly to grain yield by influencing flowering time, number of tillers and spikelets in sensitive wheat genotypes. There has been no report of the effect of vernalization on grain fill duration and grain weight in wheat. The objective of...
The goals of this research were to evaluate the interaction effects between photoperiod management and dietary grain allocation in lactating dairy cows and to determine if any relationships exist between photoperiod management and the persistency of lactation in selected dairy herds in Alberta....
Elucidating the effects of photoperiod during gestation and lactation on mammary gene expression and function in cows and miceDownload
Photoperiod, or day length, generates a highly accurate biological calendar that allows animals to anticipate and adapt to environmental change throughout the year. Photoperiod coordinates both daily and yearly rhythms associated with sleep/wake cycles, behavior, and reproduction, including...
The Effect of Risk for Subacute Ruminal Acidosis, Feeding Frequency, and Photoperiod on the Feeding Behaviour of Lactating Dairy CowsDownload
Cows fed the same high-grain diet have a large variation in rumen pH and can be categorized as higher or lower risk for developing subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA). The objective of this research was to determine if differences in feeding behaviour existed between the two categories and if these...
Understanding the flowering gene complex in bread wheat is important to utilize the maximum production potential in a time-limited growing season. Vernalization (Vrn), photoperiod (Ppd) and earliness per se are the three genetic constituents of the flowering gene complex. A series of experiments...
