Identification and characterization of presumptive bovine mammary stem cells
An understanding of the characteristics and regulation of mammary stem cells (MaSCs) is needed to gain insight into normal gland development and carcinogenesis. Previous profiling of MaSCs relied upon immunophenotypic ...
ROLE OF MATERNAL AND CYTOPLASMIC EFFECTS IN EARLY CALF GROWTH IN A CLOSED BREEDING NUCLEUS ANGUS HERD
Maternal and cytoplasmic inheritance was investigated in a closed Angus herd. Observed traits were birth weight, weaning weight, adjusted body weight, average daily gain, hock length and scrotal circumference. Each animal ...
Denovo synthesized fatty acids as regulators of milk fat synthesis
The objectives of the dissertation research were to determine the role of <italic>denovo</italic> synthesized fatty acids (DNFA) in the regulation of milk fat synthesis. Milk fat responses to increasing amounts of short- ...
On-Farm Dry Matter Analysis to Improve Feed Delivery Precision on Dairy Farms
Uncertainty in dairy ration content impacts feed efficiency, milk production, expenses, and environmental losses. When measuring silage by weight, unknown changes in dry matter (DM) may change the total mixed ration. The ...
