Cover for Strategies for alleviating abiotic stress in livestock.

The livestock sector accounts for 40% of the world's agriculture gross domestic product (GDP). It employs 1.3 billion people and creates livelihoods for 1 billion of the population living in poverty. Climate change is seen as a major threat to the survival of many species and ecosystems, and the...

Cover for Nutritional strategies for minimizing phosphorus pollution from the livestock industry.

Livestock manure traditionally has been considered and used as a valuable resource by farmers to improve crop production. Livestock manure is rich in nutrients (nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P)) and thus has been land applied to enrich soils. But land application of manure nutrients in excess of...

Cover for Proteomics in studying the molecular mechanism of fibre degradation.

The degradation of plant cell walls by ruminants is of major economic importance in the developed as well as the developing world. Rumen fermentation and degradation of cell wall relies on the cooperation between the microorganisms that produce fibrolytic enzymes and the host animal, which provides ...

Cover for Ionophores: a tool for improving ruminant production and reducing environmental impact.

Ruminal fermentation is an inherently inefficient process converting up to 12% of dietary carbon and energy into end products (e.g. CH4) that are largely unusable by the animal. Ruminant nutritionists seek to modify fermentation, specifically by increasing ruminal propionic acid yield, reducing...

Cover for Immunization and tannins in livestock enteric methane amelioration.

The complexity of the rumen microbial ecosystem supports the efficient conversion of various carbohydrates to volatile fatty acids for fulfilling host energy requirement via stepwise disposal of hydrogen (H2) through the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) to methane (CH4). Although, this mechanism...

Cover for Phage therapy in livestock methane amelioration.

Viruses of prokaryotes (phages) are obligate microbial pathogens that can, in the lytic phase of development, infect and lyse their respective bacterial or archaeal hosts. As such, these viruses can reduce the population density of their hosts rapidly, and have been viewed as possible agents of...

Cover for Feed-based approaches in enteric methane amelioration.

Mitigation of methane (CH4) emissions from ruminants is necessary not only from the global warming point of view but also for saving dietary energy. Livestock being the significant contributors to the anthropogenic CH4 pool have remained the prime target of global research for the past two decades, ...
