Determining the added value of coproducts based adaptation diets and the heritability of variation in feed intake in Red Angus cattle (2019-04-25)The main goal of the feedlot industry is to maximize growth in cattle while minimizing costs in all phases of the finishing period. Traditionally, this is done by feeding diets high in grain to maximize energy intake. ...
(2019-04-26)Mature Simmental × Angus cows (n = 147; BW = 590 ± 72 kg) were used to evaluate the effects of early weaning on subsequent calf growth performance and carcass characteristics. Cows were assigned to 1 of 2 treatments based ...
Applying edge-core theory of intraspecific life-history variation to the control of invasive silver carp (hypophthalmichthys molitrix) (2019-04-18)As a species expands its range, individuals along the leading edge of the expansion will face different selective pressures than individuals at the core of the population. The result is that ‘edge’ individuals will display ...
(2019-04-24)Three experiments were conducted to determine the nutritional composition and digestibility of hybrid rye and other cereal grains fed to growing pigs. In Exp. 1, the objective was to determine the standardized ileal ...
Effects of housing beef cow-calf pairs on dry lot vs pasture on cow performance as well calf performance and behavior through feedlot receiving (2019-04-26)The objectives were to analyze the effects of housing cow-calf pairs in dry lots (DL) or pasture (PAST) on cow performance and reproduction and calf performance and behavior through the receiving phase. Simmental × Angus ...
