Effects of dietary cis 9, trans 11-18 : 2, trans 10, cis 12-18 : 2 or vaccenic acid (trans 11-18 : 1) during lactation on body composition, tissue fatty acid profiles, and litter growth in mice
(Cambridge University Press, 2003-12)
Cis 9, trans 11 (c9, t11)-18:2 and trans 10, cis 12 (t10, c12)-18:2 are the major conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) isomers in dietary supplements which reduce milk fat content in nursing women. The present study evaluated ...
Sorption of estrogen to three agricultural soils from Virginia, USA
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2008)
Land-applied manures and grazing livestock are sources of estrogens to the environment. Natural steroid estrogens such as 17 beta-estradiol (E2) in low concentrations (ng L(-1)) can adversely affect the reproductive health ...
Estimation of additive, dominance and epistatic variance components using finite locus models implemented with a single-site Gibbs and a descent graph sampler
(Cambridge University Press, 2000-10)
In a previous contribution, we implemented a finite locus model (FLM) for estimating additive and dominance genetic variances via a Bayesian method and a single-site Gibbs sampler. We observed a dependency of dominance ...
Dietary phosphorus effects on characteristics of mechanically separated dairy manure
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2005)
One approach to reduce nutrient losses from livestock farms is to apply biological waste treatment systems such as biological nitrogen (N) removal or enhanced biological phosphorus (P) removal (EBPR) to reduce the nutrient ...
