The effects of individual amino acid infusions, formulated from each cow’s blood amino acid profile, on milk protein production were studied in twelve lactating Holstein cows fed a total mixed ration with 15.4% crude protein. Treatments were jugular infusions of either 0.9% saline (SAL), limiting amino acids according to the NRC (NRCT), or limiting amino acids according to the blood profile (BT) in a Latin square design for three, 10 d periods where milk and blood samples were collected. NRCT and BT reduced milk

The welfare of pigs during transport depends on many factors, but trailer design plays a key role in transport-related stress. Pot-belly trailers are commonly used for swine transportation in Canada but are criticized because of steep internal ramps causing difficulties during loading/unloading, and poor internal microclimate conditions. This results in a greater proportion of dead-on-arrivals and fatigued pigs compared to trailers using flat-deck designs.

CNM Seminar: Application of modelling to solve animal production system problems
