Abstract The period after hatch in broilers and around the time of weaning in pigs is critical for development and for adaptation of the small intestine to the nutritional changes. In broilers, the small-intestinal weight relative to body weight and villous height increase rapidly during the...
Abstract A simulation model for predicting the voluntary feed intake (VFI) of a growing pig is presented. Five parameters were used to describe the effects of pig genotype and sex based on the ratio of lipid mass to protein mass at maturity and the scaling of lipid mass to protein mass during...
Abstract Selection was performed for high November weight on ad libitum (AL) and restricted feeding (RF) in mink in two generations. A farm fed line (FF) was maintained as a control. The estimates of heritability for November weight were large (0.62, 0.52, and 0.73 in males and 0.68, 0.51, and...
Abstract The objective of the present simulation was to use the National Chung Hsing University (NCHU) pig growth simulation model to define the relationship between different protein and energy intake levels on the performance and body composition of a growing pig. Fifty diets were used to...
Abstract Controlling the time of harvest to affect grass maturity for silage was evaluated as a methane (CH4) mitigation strategy in a batch culture in vitro with ruminal fluid as inoculum and silage from a mixed timothy (Phleum pretense)-meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis) stand. The stand was...
Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Mentha piperita L. (MP) dried leaves on the in vitro rumen methanogenesis and fermentation. It was found that after 24 hours of incubations, addition of 16.34 and 23.35 mg of MP to the 233.3 mg of substrate significantly decreased...
