Oliveros, M.C.R. - - 2009
Research on barley as an animal feed started some decades ago but its utilization in animal production has been limited to countries that grow the crop extensively. Corn has been the most popular energy feed in cattle rations, but the high price of corn and the decreased supply of the ...

Duck egg white (DEW) hydrolysates were prepared by five enzymes (papain, trypsin, chymotrypsin, alcalase, and flavourzyme) and their antioxidant activities investigated in this study. DEW hydrolyzed with papain (DEWHP) had the highest peptide content among the five enzymatic treatments. Besides, the peptide content of DEWHP increased when the enzyme to ...

The present study was conducted to determine the effects of two types of housing systems and early age feed restriction on stress and fear reactions, and performance in broiler chickens raised in a hot, humid tropical climate. On day 1, chicks were housed either in windowless environmentally controlled chambers (temperature ...

To evaluate the effect of different housing systems on sow behavior, 80 gilts were randomly allocated at puberty to four treatments: i) sow stall in gestation followed by farrowing crate (SC), ii) group housing with individual feeding in gestation followed by farrowing crate (GC), iii) ESF (Electronic Sow Feeding) system ...

Trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) has been reported to inhibit the adipocyte differentiation of preadipocytes in non-ruminant animals (mice, rat, and human). However, the effects of trans-10, cis-12 CLA have not been clear in ruminants. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of trans-10, cis-12 CLA ...

Anaerobic rumen fungi have been regarded as good genetic resources for enzyme production which might be useful for feed supplements, bio-energy production, bio-remediation and other industrial purposes. In this study, an expressed sequence tag (EST) library of the rumen anaerobic fungus Neocallimastix frontalis was constructed and functional genes from the ...

This study was carried out to evaluate the effects of dietary supplementation of different sources of chromium on growth performance, blood profile and carcass trait in growing-finishing pigs. A total of 200 growing pigs (LandracexYorkshire) x Duroc, average initial weight 8.5 kg) were allotted to 5 treatments with 4 replicates ...
Weng, R.C. - - 2009
One hundred and forty-four piglets with an average birth weight of 1,672 [+ or -] 13.4 g were used to evaluate different feeding strategies for piglets reared from birth on a dummy sow. A 3x2 factorial experiment compared three nursing frequencies (1, 3 or 6 h intervals) and two feeding ...
Thacker, P.A. - - 2009
This study compared the nutritional value of canola (B. napa) and mustard (B. hirta) press cakes obtained from the biodiesel industry as ingredients for use in diets fed to broiler chickens. A total of 210, one-day old, male broiler chicks were randomly assigned to one of seven dietary treatments. The ...

A metabolic study was conducted with four ruminally-cannulated lactating goats (Saanen, 29 weeks lactation, 65 [+ or -] 5 kg) in a 4x4 Latin square design with 4 dietary treatments. The goats were fed a basal mixed diet consisting of 80% concentrate and 20% chopped rye grass hay (DM basis, ...
Alamouti, H.R. - - 2009
Forty-six Holstein heifers were used in a completely randomized design and assigned to 1 of 2 treatments to evaluate the effects of 2 diets varying in ruminal fermentable carbohydrate sources, namely ground corn (GC) and rolled wheat (RW), on metabolism and performance of primiparous cows in the periparturient period. The ...
Lee, H.G. - - 2009
A feeding trial was conducted to examine the effect of high-temperature-micro-time (HTMT) processing of diets containing extruded soybean (ESB) in high quantity on milk fat production, metabolic responses, and the formation of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and trans-vaccenic acid (TVA). Twenty-one multiparous Holstein cows in mid-lactation were blocked according to ...
Zheng, Chuan - - 2009
This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of dietary supplementation with BCAA (branched-chain amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine) on improving the growth of rats in a malnutritional IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Retardation) model, which was established by feeding restriction. In the experimental treatment, rats were fed purified diets supplemented ...

The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) plays well-defined roles in eliciting immune responses and combating infectious diseases. The major histocompatibility complex of cattle is referred to as BoLA (Bovine Lymphocyte Antigen). This genetic system is among the most polymorphic. In the present study, polymorphism of the BoLA-DRB3.2 locus in three Bos ...

Female germ cell meiotic divisions are typically asymmetric, giving rise to two daughter cells with different sizes. Spindle movements including spindle migration from the oocyte center to the cortex and spindle rotation from parallel to perpendicular (typically in the mouse) at the cortex are crucial for these asymmetric divisions and ...

Trigger thumb, although rare, is the most common stenosing tenosynovitis seen in children. We report a case of a late presenting bilateral congenital trigger thumb and a review of current management options. Trigger thumb in children is an important condition to identify early, triage, and appropriately treat.

Duodenal trauma cause complications and even death when the diagnosis is delayed (5). Although up to 20% of the population have duodenal diverticula, perforation as a result of blunt trauma is uncommon. Our 84 year old patient suffered duodenal diverticular perforation in a motor vehicle collision. She had early exploration, ...

An immunocompetent patient sustained a needlestick injury to his left third finger and presented with a finger infection. Operative intervention confirmed the preoperative diagnosis of suppurative flexor tenosynovitis. Cultures from the procedure grew Tsukamurella spp and Trichosporon spp. Human infections with Tsukamurella are rare and usually occur in immunocompromised patients. ...

Patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) frequently present with angiographically visible thrombus at the time of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A retrospective analysis was conducted of 59 patients with documented STEMI who underwent rheolytic thrombectomy (RT) during the time of PCI at West Virginia University Hospital. Coronary ...
