Studies of ruminant digestion, ecology, and evolution
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
the reticulorumen. We inferred that once a particle escapes from the dorsal sac for the final time, it must escape from ventral regions soon after entry. We also developed a mechanistic model of ruminant gastrointestinal tract function (based on chemical reactor...
Ruminal degradation of protein and carbohydrate in the domestic and wild ruminant
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
To optimize growth and health ruminant animals in a confined setting, diets need to be formulated to provide balanced levels of rumen degradable energy and nitrogen (RDN) to maximize microbial growth while also providing ...
Evaluating pig performance, carcass merit and processed pork quality when chestnuts and acorns are fed to Duroc-influenced pig genetics during late finishing
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
The objective of this study was to determine effects of feeding chestnuts and acorns on growth performance, carcass quality and further processed products of Duroc/Duroc crossbred finishing barrows. Barrows (n = 30) were ...
