Effects of low crude protein diets with amino acid supplementation on broiler performance in the starter period
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
A series of experiments were conducted to examine the effects of feeding low crude protein (CP) corn and soybean meal diets with crystalline amino acid supplementation to broilers from 0-3 weeks of age. It was hypothesized that these diets would...
Influence of subclinical hypocalcemia on plasma biochemical parameters, liver histologic changes, and common postpartum diseases in dairy cows
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2011)
We hypothesized that cows with subclinical hypocalcemia at calving would have greater elevations in liver associated biochemical parameters and non-esterified fatty acid (NEFA) concentrations compared to normocalcemic cows. ...
Applications of ancestry estimation in cattle population genetics
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
Accounting for ancestry and cryptic population structure is important in population genetic data analysis. The estimation of ancestry can help elucidate the effects of admixture or stratification on allele and genotype ...
