Performance of Hereford and Holstein heifers on kikuyu pasture (Pennisetum clandestinum), using n-alkanes for determination of digestibility and dry matter intake.
Kikuyu pasture (Pennisetum clandestinum) is potentially the most important source of roughage used to feed dairy heifers in summer in KwaZulu-Natal. It is commonly believed that on kikuyu pasture beef breed females ...
The effect of form of nitrogen on the efficiency of protein synthesis by rumen bacteria in continuous culture.
The aim of this study was to examine the effect of the form of nitrogen available to mixed rumen bacteria on the efficiency of microbial protein synthesis. A novel, solid substrate, continuous culture fermentor which ...
Theoretical and applied aspects of voluntary feed intake by ruminants, with special reference to the kinetics of rumen digestion.
The aim of these studies was to examine the factors which determine voluntary feed intake and feed quality in ruminants. In the first experiments, the concepts of ruminal digestion kinetics were conceptualised and measured ...
The use of the N-alkane technique for measuring herbage dry matter intake in horses.
The use of n-alkanes as indigestible markers for the estimation of herbage dry matter intake in grazing ruminants, is reported to have significant advantages over other markers used for this purpose (Dove and Mayes, ...
The effect of different methods of controlling urolithiasis on ovine mineral metabolism.
The widespread use of high-energy, low roughage diets among feedlot sheep has lead to the development of several production diseases (Bide et al., 1973). One of the least easily identifiable is urolithiasis, yet it is ...
