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 potential of pods from tree legumes as supplement to low quality roughages for ruminants.
The goal of the study was to examine the use of pods from tree legumes as supplements to poor quality roughage-based diets. Trials were carried out to address issues related to the nutrient content of the pods and their ...
Nutritive value and manure quality in supplemented maize stover and grass hay diets for ruminants.
Production of ruminants is highly dependent on utilization of roughages. In tropical regions, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa, the roughages are predominantly of poor quality due to high fibre and low protein content. ...
The fibrolytic potential of domestic and wild herbivores microbial ecosystems on maize stover.
The growing demand for meat worldwide by the increasing human population (6.8 billion) calls for an increase in livestock production as well as attention to environmental sustainability. Production increases are critical ...
