The dairy sector is a significant contributor to Canada's economy and the Canadian diet; however, the associated carbon footprint comprises a large portion of agricultural emissions. Anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are widely accepted as a key contributor to climate change, which is...
The effects of supplementation of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae fermentation product and reducing dietary starch content after calving on the immune response and nutrient digestibility in transition dairy cowsDownload
The transition period is a challenging time for dairy cows because they experience reduced immune system function, increased risk of sub-acute rumen acidosis, and inflammation. The combination of these can lead to increased susceptibility to disease and reduced productivity. Additionally,...
