  • Leketa, Khabane (University of Pretoria, 2011-11-21)
    This study was undertaken to determine the effects and nutritive value of Leucaena leucocephala when it was incorporated in a total mixed ration (TMR) fed to milk goats. This was to test the use of Leucaena to substitute ...
  • Erasmus, Louize (University of Pretoria, 2010-08-16)
    Kikuyu is well adapted to the main milk producing areas of the Southern Cape region of South Africa. The strategic incorporation of different types of temperate grasses into kikuyu pastures can increase the seasonal dry ...
  • Chimsa, M.B.; Mummed, Yesihak Yusuf; Kurtu, Mohamed Y.; Leta, Mengistu U. (CIPAV, 2014-08)
    Milk suckled, off take and growth of calves of Camel was measured from August 2008 to July 2009 in eastern Ethiopia with the aim to evaluate the performance of the herd in terms of milk productivity and growth of calves. ...
  • Du Toit, Cornelius Jacobus Lindeque (University of Pretoria, 2017)
    Globally agriculture and livestock producers have come under increasing pressure over the environmental impact of production systems. The objectives of this study were to re-calculate the direct methane (CH4) and nitrous ...
  • Hartman, Carina (University of Pretoria, 2004-02-27)
    Records of the La Rochelle S.A. Mutton Merino stud were analysed to determine the importance of possible contributing non-genetic sources of variation on growth and reproductive traits. Growth traits analysed were pre-weaning ...
  • Mangani, Robert; Tesfamariam, Eyob Habte; Bellocchi, Gianni; Hassen, Abubeker (CSIRO, 2018-07)
    This study assessed two versions of the crop model CropSyst (i.e. EMS, existing; MMS, modified) for their ability to simulate maize (Zea mays L.) yield in South Africa. MMS algorithms explicitly account for the impact of ...
  • Hill, Hester Elizabeth Johanna (University of Pretoria, 2009-04-16)
    The complicated nature of beef cattle farming necessitated the development of an effective computerised cattle management system (cattle farm planning system). This system was developed and programmed to be a planning and ...
  • Visser, Carina (University of Pretoria, 2011-10-24)
    South Africa is considered the primary producer and most reliable source of high quality clip mohair in the world. The application of molecular technologies to improve mohair quality is relatively new to this industry. The ...
  • Myburgh, S.J. (Susanna Johanna) (University of Pretoria, 2015)
    The functional efficiency of beef cattle including sound claws are essential given that it has a marked influence on functional longevity and subsequent performance. The aim of this study was firstly to analyse Bonsmara ...
  • Raffrenato, E.; Blake, R.W.; Oltenacu, P.A.; Gambina, M.; Licitra, G. (Elsevier, 2013-01)
