Livestock production and climate change by P. K Malik( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 395-paged-book aims to raise awareness among scientists, academics, students, livestock farmers and policy makers of the twin inter-related and inter-dependent complex mechanisms of livestock rearing and climate change. The contents are divided into sections: one on livestock production, one on climate change and one on enteric methane amelioration. In the first section, decisive issues such as current feed and fodder demand, the effect of climate change on feed availability and quality, projections for 2030, water requirement, etc., have been dealt in order. Given the due importance to abiotic stress, nitrogen emissions and phosphorus pollution, well-designed individual chapters are arranged in this section that suggest the appropriate corrective measures for these global glitches. As ruminants thrive mainly on fibrous feed material, particularly in the developing world, the special topics on metagenomics and proteomics are positioned in this section for the effective use of these emerging approaches in fibre degradation. As stated earlier, livestock production and climate change are amalgamated through complex mechanisms, and one affects the other in many ways. Therefore, in the section on climate change, an attempt is made to address the interspersed link under seven chapters, focusing on the carbon footprint of producing food of animal origin, carbon sequestration, livestock diversity, animal reproduction, meat production and the role of indigenous livestock in the changing climatic scenario. Exclusive attention is given to enteric methane emission in the final section for being the critical factor in climate change, and is deliberated under nine different chapters converging on status, thermodynamics, feeding and biological interventions to address the problem and to achieve practically viable reduction levels for minimizing the impact of global warming and saving biological energy that can be directed towards productive functions. It is hoped that the comprehensive, compact and up-to-date information contained in this book will empower animal scientists to cope with the climate change issue

Effect of feeding protected proteins on the growth rate, feed utilization and body composition of goats by C. S Prasad( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The present investigation has been undertaken to study the heat tramter chavacteristion and temperature distribution of milk during cooling and to findout the time temperature histories of milk during freezing. The results indicated that the cooling rate was influenced by the composition of milk with veg and to free convection heat transfer coefficient of milk during cooling it was of served that conective heat transfer co-efficienty of milk during cooling can be calculated by nusselt type equation
Effect of plant secondary compounds on in vitro methane, ammonia production and ruminal protozoa population( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Aims: The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential of secondary plant metabolites from 38 sources to serve as antimethanogenic additives in ruminant diets. The effect of leaf tannins from these different plant sources on rumen fermentation, protozoal populations and methanogenesis was also studied. Methods and Results: Samples (200 mg dry matter, DM) were incubated without and with polyethylene glycol (PEG)-6000 (400 mg DM) as a tannin binder during 24-h incubation in the in vitro Hohenheim gas system. In the leaf samples, total phenol (g kg −1 DM) was maximum in Pimenta officinalis (312) followed by Oenothera lamarckiana (185) and Lawsonia inermis (105). Of the 38 samples, condensed tannins exceeded 4·0 g kg −1 in only Alpinia galanga (7·50), Cinnamomum verum (4·58), Pelargonium graveolens (18·7) and Pimenta officinalis (23·2) and were not detected in seven samples. When the bioactivity of the leaf samples was assessed using the tannin bioassay, the percentage increase in the amount of gas produced during incubation of samples with the tannin-binding agent PEG-6000 over the amount produced during incubation without the tannin binder ranged from nil (zero) to 367%, with the highest being recorded with A. galanga leaves. The ratio of methane reduction per ml of total gas reduction was maximum with Rauvolfia serpentina (131·8) leaves, followed by Indigofera tinctoria (16·8) and Withania somnifera (10·2) leaves. Total and differential protozoal counts increased with added PEG in twenty-two samples, maximum being in Pimenta officinalis . Increased accumulation of total volatile fatty acids during incubation with added PEG-6000 was recorded, and the values ranged from zero to 61%. However, the increase was significant in only 11 of the 38 tannin sources tested indicating noninterference of tannin on in vitro fermentation of carbohydrates by the majority of samples tested. Conversely, in 26 of 38 plant sources, the leaf tannins reduced N-digestibility as evidenced by increased accumulation of NH3 -N with added PEG. Conclusions: Our study unequivocally demonstrated that plants containing secondary metabolites such as Rauvolfia serpentine, Indigofera tinctoria and Withania somnifera have great potential to suppress methanogenesis with minimal adverse effect of feedstuff fermentation. Significance and Impact of the Study: It was established that methanogenesis was not essentially related to the density of protozoa population in vitro . The tannins contained in these plants could be of interest in the development of new additives in ruminant nutrition

Effects of graded levels of tannin‐containing tropical tree leaves on in vitro rumen fermentation, total protozoa and methane production( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Aims This study was carried out to determine the effect of graded levels of tannin‐containing tropical tree leaves, Autocarpus integrifolis, Azardirachta indica and Ficus bengalensis, on the in vitro rumen fermentation pattern, total protozoa and methane suppression in order to establish the optimum dose of these leaves for inclusion in the ruminant diets. Methods and Results The air‐dried and ground samples of Au. integrifolis, Az. indica and Ficus bengalensis were subjected to in vitro incubation using 30 ml buffered rumen fluid at 0, 2·5, 5·0, 10·0, 15·0, 20·0, 25·0 and 30·0% (dry matter refers to moisture‐free basis) of a total mixed ration (TMR: refers to mixture of roughage and concentrate containing cereals and oil cakes) devoid of tannin. The TMR for the experimental incubation was prepared by mixing 40 parts of ground Elusine coracana straw as roughage source with 60 parts of concentrate mixture. The leaves contained an average 130 g kg−1 CP with 7·0 MJ of ME kg−1 DM. The average neutral detergent fibre (NDF) content was <400 g kg−1 DM. Highest total phenol (TP; g kg−1DM) was recorded in Az. indica (108) followed by F. bengalensis (103) and Au. integrifolis (76), and total tannin (TT) content also showed similar trend. However, condensed tannin (CT) was highest in F. bengalensis (260) followed by Au. integrifolis (186) and Az. indica (138). There was significant (P < 0·05) reduction in the NH3 concentration in the presence of all the leaves. Autocarpus integrifolis tannins did not cause inhibition of total volatile fatty acid (TVFA: refers to the concentration of volatile fatty acids, viz. acetic, butyric and propionic) concentration, whereas F. bengalensis and Az. indica tannins at higher level of incubation (>5·0%) reduced TVFA concentration. Protozoa (cells per mL) were similar at all levels of inclusion with Au. integrifolis, but reduced in case of F. bengalensis and Az. indica. As the level of tannin increased in the incubation medium, there was a linear reduction in methane concentration. Highest methane reduction (%) was recorded in incubations supplemented with Az. indica (61·5) followed by F. bengalensis (46·8) and Au. integrifolis (30·3). Conclusions It was established from this study that tropical leaves of F. bengalensis, Au. integrifolis and Az. indica suppress methanogenesis. Significance and Impact of the Study Ficus bengalensis, Au. integrifolis and Az. indica leaves are of interest in the enteric methane ameliorative strategies. Total mixed ration containing 10–15% ground F. bengalensis or Au. integrifolis or Az. indica leaves could be fed to ruminants to reduce enteric methanogenesis. However, in vivo trials need to be carried out to validate these in vitro results
