  1. 1. The digesta passage rate among dairy cows with different abilities to consume large quantities of roughage : its impact on the milk production, and the reliability of the chemical fibre marker

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

    Author : Maria Elisabeth Eklund; [2020]
    Keywords : chemical markers; chromium; chromium mordanted fibre; cobalt; concen-trate level; EDTA; iNDF; mean re-tention time; ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid; forage consumption; indigestible neutral detergent fibre; liquid digesta phase; MRT; rumen evacuation; sol;

    Abstract : The objectives of the present master thesis were to investigate the passage rate among lactating Holstein and Swedish red dairy cows to investigate the hypotheses of: 1) The cows’ individual total mean retention time (TMRT) has a negative relationship to the cows’ individual forage intake capacity. 2) A reduced TMRT contributes to a reduced feed efficiency, but a higher milk yield.

  3. 3. Anaerobic degradation of volatile fatty acids in continuous biogas reactors at very short hydraulic retention times.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi; Lunds universitet/Bioteknik

    Author : Anna Lea Auguste Weimer; [2019]
    Keywords : Anaerobic digestion; hydraulic retention time; organic loading rate; biogas; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : There is an increasing demand for safe, affordable and above allsustainable energy, due to the exhaustion of fossil fuels and increasing greenhousegas emissions. In this context, anaerobic digestion is of growing interest, as it enablesthe production of the versatile renewable energy source biogas from various types oforganic wastes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of a method for the analysis of serglycin proteoglycan gene expression in canine blood samples

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Biomedical Sciences and Veterinary Public Health

    Author : Kristin Löfqvist; [2018]
    Keywords : Canine cancer; ; serglycin; ; biomarker; ; qPCR; ;

    Abstract : Cancer is a highly prevalent disease among canine breeds. Nowadays, mainly histology parameters are used to determine the prognosis and for selecting treatment strategies. Due to the high degree of morbidity and mortality in cancer affected dogs, there is a strong need to identify additional diagnostic methods and biomarkers. READ MORE

  5. 5. The gut microbial composition in humans in hot occupational settings and the effects of drinking buttermilk

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

    Author : Danping Song; [2015]
    Keywords : Gut microbiota; Buttermilk; heat stress; livsmedelsteknologi; food technology; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The principal aims of the present study were to examine the latent heat stress relieving capacity of drinking buttermilk and to observe the human gut microbiota in hot occupational condition. A human crossover intervention study with 12 volunteers was studied, each of them performed 3 hours of physical work in a heat chamber. READ MORE
