  1. Development of chocolate dairy dessert with addition of prebiotics and replacement of sucrose with different high-intensity sweeteners.

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(5):2600 (2014) PMID 24612793

    The aims of this study were (1) to optimize the formulation of a prebiotic chocolate dairy dessert and assess the extent to which sensory properties were affected by adding different concentrations of prebiotics (inulin and fructooligosaccharides) combined with different levels of xanthan and guar g...
  2. Reproductive performance of lactating dairy cows managed for first service using timed artificial insemination with or without detection of ...

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(5):2771 (2014) PMID 24630667

    Lactating dairy cows (n=1,025) on a commercial dairy farm were randomly assigned at 10±3d in milk (DIM) to 1 of 3 treatments for submitting cows to first artificial insemination (AI) and were fitted with activity-monitoring tags (Heatime; SCR Engineers Ltd., Netanya, Israel) at 24±3 DIM. Cows (n=339...
  3. Efficacy of on-farm use of ultraviolet light for inactivation of bacteria in milk for calves.

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(5):2990 (2014) PMID 24704227

    Ultraviolet light is being employed for bacterial inactivation in milk for calves; however, limited evidence is available to support the claim that UV light effectively inactivates bacteria found in milk. Thus, the objective of this observational study was to investigate the efficacy of on-farm UV l...
  4. Short communication: Genetic evaluation of stillbirth in US Brown Swiss and Jersey cattle.

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(4):2474 (2014) PMID 24508434

    Stillbirth (SB) often results in reduced milk yield, compromised reproductive performance, and decreased dam longevity. Corrective mating can be used as a short-term solution to the problem, but long-term improvement of the population requires the routine calculation of genetic evaluations. Breeding...
  5. Interactions of alfalfa hay and sodium propionate on dairy calf performance and rumen development.

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(4):2270 (2014) PMID 24508441

    The objective of this experiment was to investigate the effects of different levels of alfalfa hay (AH) and sodium propionate (Pro) added to starter diets of Holstein calves on growth performance, rumen fermentation characteristics, and rumen development. Forty-two male Holstein calves (40±2kg of bi...
  6. Urea-N recycling in lactating dairy cows fed diets with 2 different levels of dietary crude protein and starch with or without monensin.

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(3):1611 (2014) PMID 24377801

    Rumensin (monensin; Elanco Animal Health, Greenfield, IN) has been shown to reduce ammonia production and microbial populations in vitro; thus, it would be assumed to reduce ruminal ammonia production and subsequent urea production and consequently affect urea recycling. The objective of this experi...
  7. Use of micellar casein concentrate for Greek-style yogurt manufacturing: Effects on processing and product properties.

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(3):1259 (2014) PMID 24440261

    The objective of this work was to develop and optimize an alternative make process for Greek-style yogurt (GSY), in which the desired level of protein was reached by fortification with micellar casein concentrate (MCC) obtained from milk by microfiltration. Two MCC preparations with 58 and 88% total...
  8. Fine mapping of a quantitative trait locus for bovine milk fat composition on Bos taurus autosome 19.

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(2):1139 (2014) PMID 24315323

    A major quantitative trait locus (QTL) for milk fat content and fatty acids in both milk and adipose tissue has been detected on Bos taurus autosome 19 (BTA19) in several cattle breeds. The objective of this study was to refine the location of the QTL on BTA19 for bovine milk fat composition using a...
  9. Effects of milk replacer feeding strategies on performance, ruminal development, and metabolism of dairy calves.

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(2):1016 (2014) PMID 24342682

    Performance, rumen development, and metabolism of male Holstein calves (n=54) were evaluated according to 1 of 3 liquid feeding strategies: 4 L of milk replacer (MR)/d until 60 d old (4L-60d), 6L of MR/d until 29 d old and 4 L/d from 30 to 60 d (6L-29d/4L-60d), or 6L of MR/day until 60 d old (60d-6L...
  10. Short communication: Effect of blackberry and pomegranate oils on vaccenic acid formation in a single-flow continuous culture fermentation s...

    Journal of Dairy Science 97(2):1067 (2014) PMID 24342694

    A single-flow continuous culture fermenter system was used to study the effect of blackberry and pomegranate oils on vaccenic acid (trans-11 C18:1; VA) formation. Four continuous culture fermenters were used in a 4×4 Latin square design with 4 periods of 10d each. Diets were (1) control (CON), (2) c...
