  1. 1. Alkaline Protein Extraction of Oat Bran and Oat Endosperm Flour - the Effect of pH during Extraction and Precipitation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Bella Nielsen; Alva Rodhe; [2021]
    Keywords : Oats; Protein; Alkaline extraction; Protein extraction; Plant-based proteins; Oat protein; Oat bran; Oat endosperm; Iso-electric precipitation; Food engineering; Technology and Engineering; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : An increased understanding of the negative impacts of animal-based proteins, on both environment and health, has led to a rise in the demand for plant-based proteins. To meet the demands, conventional crops must be efficiently utilized. READ MORE

  2. 2. Using Sentinel-2 Satellite Images to Estimate Traits of Forage Grasslands

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Agricultural Research for Northern Sweden

    Author : Niklas Zeiner; [2021]
    Keywords : Remote sensing; Forage grasslands; Sentinel-2; Dry matter yield; Canopy average height; Total leaf chlorophyll content; Partial least squares; Support vector machines;

    Abstract : In this project, regression models based on data from field measurements and spectral information extracted from satellite imagery were used to estimate traits of forage grasslands; dry matter yield, canopy average height and total leaf chlorophyll. Four fields at SLUs Röbäcksdalen field station were sampled on 22 occasions and a total of 198 samples, including measurement of the highest plant, canopy height, leaf chlorophyll content, canopy spectral reflectance and biomass were collected.

  3. 3. Effects of cow-calf contact on feed intake, milk production and energy balance in dairy cows in early lactation

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Carina Tufvesson; [2021]
    Keywords : Cow-calf contact system; dairy cow; suckling; feed intake; feeding pattern; milk production; energy balance;

    Abstract : The objective of this study was to compare the production level, feed intake and energy balance in early lactation of non-suckled cows against cows in a cow-driven cow-calf contact (CCC) system. CCC systems have become interesting to evaluate as they are thought to provide a more natural behaviour for both the cow and calf, several studies have reported higher growth and better health in calves kept in these systems.

  4. 4. Sinperiodens inverkan på nästkommande laktation : hur vanliga produktionssjukdomar kan förbyggas

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Tilde Larsson; Elisabet Nilsson; [2021]
    Keywords : dry cow; dry period; dry cow management; dry cow feeding; acetonemia; ketosis; displaced abomasum; dry cow fertility; fatty liver; hypokalcemia;

    Abstract : I takt med att avkastningen hos mjölkkor ökat på grund av förbättrade avelsstrategier och bättre management har också produktionssjukdomarna fortsatt vara närvarande, framför allt vid tiden runt kalvning. Vid denna tid är kon extra utsatt på grund av att hon ofta drabbas av negativ energibalans vilket kan leda till fysiologiska och biokemiska förändringar i kroppen. READ MORE

  5. 5. Performance of dairy cows fed grass-clover silage or biorefined silage pulp of grass-clover silage

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Environment and Health

    Author : Matilda Larsson; [2021]
    Keywords : biorefined silage; silage pulp; forage; milk production; dairy cow;

    Abstract : Grass and legumes can do ecosystem services like no other crops and are one of the biggest contributions to protein in dairy cow diets. Biorefining of silage, makes it possible to produce a high-fibre silage pulp (SP) that can be fed to ruminants and a local high-quality protein feed (press juice) for monogastric animals. READ MORE
