|Title:||Repeatability of methane production in cattle fed concentrate and forage diets||Contributor(s):||Goopy, John Patrick (author); Hegarty, Roger (author)||Publication Date:||2004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5785||Abstract:||Eight Angus steers whose methane emissions had had been found to be higher or lower than predicted when fed a commercial feedlot diet were re-tested on a medium quality forage diet. Methane emissions were within published ranges (136.4 g d⁻¹), but differences in actual vs predicted production between high and low ranked animals were diminished and several animals changed in rankings. This suggests that methane emission characteristics may not persist over time, and that any selection of animals for low methane emission may need to be diet specific.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Animal and Feed Sciences, 13(1), p. 75-78||Publisher:||Polska Akademia Nauk||Place of Publication:||Poland||ISSN:||1230-1388||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.ifzz.pl/fusion_pages/jafs/session_1.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 329
