The first stomach of ruminants. It lies on the left side of the body, occupying the whole of the left side of the abdomen and even stretching across the median plane of the body to the right side. It is capacious, divided into an upper and a lower sac, each of which has a blind sac at its posterior extremity. The rumen is lined by mucous membrane containing no digestive glands, but mucus-secreting glands are present in large numbers. Coarse, partially chewed food is stored and churned in the rumen until the animal finds circumstances convenient for rumination. When this occurs, little balls of food are regurgitated through the esophagus into the mouth, and are subjected to a second more thorough mastication, swallowed, and passed on into other parts of the compound stomach.

Rapid evolution of a primate sperm protein: relaxation of functional constraint or positive Darwinian selection? (1/548)

Protamines are arginine-rich proteins that replace histones and bind sperm DNA during spermatogenesis in vertebrates. Previous studies have shown that protamine exons evolve faster than does the protamine intron. It has been suggested that this is a result of a relaxation of functional constraint. However, a more likely explanation is that the evolutionary rate of exons has been accelerated by positive Darwinian selection, because introns are generally believed to evolve in a neutral fashion. Therefore, we examined the possibility that positive selection has been acting on the protamine genes of three groups of placental mammals: primates (hominoids and Old World monkeys), rodents (mice, rats, and guinea pigs), and pecoran ruminants (deer and bovids). We found that the nucleotide substitution rate at nonsynonymous sites is significantly higher than the rate at synonymous and intron sites for protamine P1 of hominoids and Old World monkeys. This result suggests that positive selection has been operating on protamine P1 of these species. In contrast, no clear-cut evidence of positive selection was found for protamine P1 of ruminants and rodents or protamine P2 of primates. The agent of positive selection on primate protamine P1 remains unknown, though sperm competition is a possibility. Further investigations on the function and intraspecific polymorphism of this protein are needed in order to identify the selection agent.  (+info)

Partial nuclear localization of a bovine phosphoprotein, BCNT, that includes a region derived from a LINE repetitive sequence in Ruminantia. (2/548)

BCNT, named after Bucentaur, is a protein that contains a 324-amino-acid region derived from part of a long interspersed DNA sequence element (LINE) in Ruminantia. However, the unique portion is completely missing in human and mouse BCNTs. Since no significant information on their function has been obtained by homology search, we at first examined cellular localization and biochemical characteristics of bovine BCNT to get a hint on its function. Subcellular fractionation and immunohistochemical analyses using a normal bovine epithelial cell line and bovine brain revealed that a significant amount of bovine BCNT is localized in the nuclei, while the major portion is present in the cytosol. Furthermore, it was shown that bovine BCNT is a phosphoprotein and that both bovine and human BCNTs are phosphorylated by casein kinase II in vitro. These results show that BCNTs consist of a unique family, probably a substrate of casein kinase II, which may contribute further to the understanding of gene evolution.  (+info)

Evolutionary affinities of the enigmatic saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis) in the context of the molecular phylogeny of Bovidae. (3/548)

To elucidate the systematic status of the enigmatic saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis), a new bovid genus recently discovered in Vietnam, and to investigate phylogenetic relationships within the family Bovidae, four distinct DNA markers were sequenced. Complete mitochondrial cytochrome b (1143 bp) and 12S rRNA (956 bp) genes and non-coding regions from the nuclear genes for aromatase cytochrome P-450 (199 bp) and lactoferrin (338 bp) have been compared for 25 bovid species and three Cervidae and Antilocapridae outgroups. Independent and/or combined analyses of the four nucleotide matrices through maximum parsimony and maximum-likelihood methods indicated that Bovidae consists of two major lineages, i.e. Bovinac which contains the tribes Bovini, Boselaphini and Tragelaphini, and Antilopinae which encompasses all other bovids. Within Bovinae, the tribe Bovini is divided into buffalo Bovini (Bubalus and Syncerus) and cattle Bovini (Bos and Bison) and Tragelaphini are possibly related to Boselaphini. Pseudoryx is shown to be (i) robustly nested within Bovinae; (ii) strongly associated with Bovini; and (iii) tentatively sharing a sister-group relationship with cattle Bovini. Within Antilopinae, three robust clades are in evidence: (i) Hippotragus and Damaliscus are linked to Ovis; (ii) Aepyceros joins Neotragus; and (iii) Cephalophus clusters with Oreotragus.  (+info)

Genealogy of families of SINEs in cetaceans and artiodactyls: the presence of a huge superfamily of tRNA(Glu)-derived families of SINEs. (4/548)

Several novel (sub)families of SINEs were isolated from the genomes of cetaceans and artiodactyls, and their sequences were determined. From comparisons of diagnostic nucleotides among the short interspersed repetitive elements (SINEs) in these (sub)families, we were able to draw the following conclusions. (1) After the divergence of the suborder Tylopoda (camels), the CHRS family of SINEs was newly created from tRNA(Glu) in a common ancestor of the lineages of the Suina (pigs and peccaries), Ruminantia (cows and deer), and Cetacea (whales and dolphins). (2) After divergence of the Suina lineage, the CHR-1 SINE and the CHR-2 SINE were generated successively in a common ancestor of ruminants, hippopotamuses, and cetaceans. (3) In the Ruminantia lineage, the Bov-tA SINE was generated by recombination between the CHR-2 SINE and Bov-A. (4) In the Suina lineage, the CHRS-S SINE was generated from the CHRS SINE. (5) In this latter lineage, the PRE-1 family of SINEs was created by insertion of part of the gene for tRNA(Arg) into the 5' region of the CHRS-S family. The distribution of a particular family of SINEs among species of artiodactyls and cetaceans confirmed the most recent conclusion for paraphyly of the order Artiodactyla. The present study also revealed that a newly created tRNA(Glu)-derived family of SINEs was subjected both to recombination with different units and to duplication of an internal sequence within a SINE unit to generate, during evolution, a huge superfamily of tRNA(Glu)-related families of SINEs that are now found in the genomes of artiodactyls and cetaceans.  (+info)

Evolution of oligomeric proteins. The unusual case of a dimeric ribonuclease. (5/548)

The model system made up of a monomeric and a dimeric ribonuclease of the pancreatic-type superfamily has recently attracted the attention of investigators interested in the evolution of oligomeric proteins. In this system, bovine pancreatic ribonuclease (RNase A) is the monomeric prototype, and bovine seminal ribonuclease (BS-RNase) is the dimeric counterpart. However, this evolutionary case is unusual, as BS-RNase is the only dimeric member of the whole large superfamily comprising more than 100 identified members from amphibia, aves, reptilia and mammalia. Furthermore, although the seminal-type RNase gene can be traced back to the divergence of the ruminants, it is expressed only in a single species (Bos taurus). These unusual findings are discussed, as well as previous hypotheses on the evolution of seminal RNase. Furthermore, a new 'minimalist' hypothesis is proposed, in line with basic principles of structural biology and molecular evolution.  (+info)

An unusual form of purifying selection in a sperm protein. (6/548)

Protamines are small, highly basic DNA-binding proteins found in the sperm of animals. Interestingly, the proportion of arginine residues in one type of protamine, protamine P1, is about 50% in mammals. Upon closer examination, it was found that both the total number of amino acids and the positions of arginine residues have changed considerably during the course of mammalian evolution. This evolutionary pattern suggests that protamine P1 is under an unusual form of purifying selection, in which the high proportion of arginine residues is maintained but the positions may vary. In this case, we would expect that the rate of nonsynonymous substitution is not particularly low compared with that of synonymous substitution, despite purifying selection. We would also expect that the selection for a high arginine content results in a high frequency of the nucleotide G in the coding region of this gene, because all six arginine codons contain at least one G. These expectations were confirmed in our study of mammalian protamine genes. Analysis of nonmammalian vertebrate genes also showed essentially the same patterns of evolutionary changes, suggesting that this unusual form of purifying selection has been active since the origin of bony vertebrates. The protamine gene of an insect species shows similar patterns, although its purifying selection is less intense. These observations suggest that arginine-rich selection is a general feature of protamine evolution. The driving force for arginine-rich selection appears to be the DNA-binding function of protamine P1 and an interaction with a protein kinase in the fertilized egg.  (+info)

Identification and characterization of anaerobic gut fungi using molecular methodologies based on ribosomal ITS1 and 185 rRNA. (7/548)

The gut fungi are an unusual group of zoosporic fungi occupying a unique ecological niche, the anaerobic environment of the rumen. They exhibit two basic forms, with nuclear migration throughout the hyphal mass for polycentric species and with concentration of nuclear material in a zoosporangium for monocentric species. Differentiation between isolates of these fungi is difficult using conventional techniques. In this study, DNA-based methodologies were used to examine the relationships within and between two genera of monocentric gut fungi gathered from various geographical locations and host animals. The ribosomal ITS1 sequence from 16 mono- and 4 polycentric isolates was PCR-amplified and sequenced; the sequences obtained were aligned with published sequences and phylogenetic analyses were performed. These analyses clearly differentiate between the two genera and reflect the previously published physiological conclusions that Neocallimastix spp. constitute a more closely related genus than the relatively divergent genus Piromyces. The analyses place two type species N. frontalis and N. hurleyensis together but, contrary to a recent suggestion in the literature, place them apart from the other agreed species N. patriciarum. In situ hybridization and slot-blotting were investigated as potential methods for detection of and differentiation between monocentric gut fungi. DNA slot-blot analysis using ribosomal sequences is able to differentiate between gut fungal genera and thus has considerable potential for use in ecological studies of these organisms.  (+info)

Genome mapping in ruminants and map locations for genes influencing reproduction. (8/548)

Genetic maps provide a critical link between genes and phenotypes and are essential tools in the search for the genetic basis of variation in reproductive traits. Genes coding for hormones, growth factors, receptors, binding proteins, transcription factors and enzymes that influence the development and function of the reproductive axis have been assigned to genetic maps of ruminants and locations can be found in the respective genome databases. In addition, comparative information on gene structure and map location will help define the functions of essential genes. Gene locations from other species can be used because of extensive comparative links among mammalian gene maps. Large-scale projects to sequence genes and the ability to map these genes in parallel in radiation hybrid panels of different species will greatly improve the maps and our ability to translate between them. Cloning the genes responsible for genetic differences in fertility and fecundity in ruminants is likely to provide valuable clues to understanding ovarian function and germ cell development.  (+info)

The small, single-stranded positive-sense RNA astroviruses are mostly known to be enteric viruses. In recent years, though, different astroviruses were reported in association with neurological disease in various species. In cattle, two distinct neurotropic astrovirus genotype species were described in numerous cases of nonsuppurative encephalomyelitis, with one of these viruses also reported in similar circumstances in several sheep. Here, we retrieved archived formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded brain tissues of a muskox diagnosed with a comparable disease pattern in 1982 and investigated them for the presence of neurotropic astroviruses with various techniques. Initially, tissue samples scored positive for both neurotropic astroviruses by immunohistochemistry; however, unexpected results with further immunohistochemical testing, in situ hybridization and qRT-PCR prompted us to submit an RNA extract from the animals brain material to next-generation sequencing. We were thus able to obtain the full

Infections with parasitic helminths (nematodes and trematodes) represent a significant economic and welfare burden to the global ruminant livestock industry. The increasing prevalence of anthelmintic resistance means that current control programmes are costly and unsustainable in the long term. Recent changes in the epidemiology, seasonality and geographic distribution of helminth infections have been attributed to climate change. However, other changes in environment (e.g., land use) and in livestock farming, such as intensification and altered management practices, will also have an impact on helminth infections. Sustainable control of helminth infections in a changing world requires detailed knowledge of these interactions. In particular, there is a need to devise new, sustainable strategies for the effective control of ruminant helminthoses in the face of global change. In this paper, we consider the impact of helminth infections in grazing ruminants, taking a European perspective, and identify

Wild ruminants may differ in their protozoal fauna according to their feeding type, but a comprehensive evaluation of available data is lacking. Here, we evaluate the literature data available on the protozoal fauna (diversity, concentration and proportions of the major groups including Entodiniinae, Diplodiniinae and Isotrichidae) in relation to the natural diet (as percentage of grass in the natural diet, %grass) and body mass (BM) in 55 wild ruminant species. The effects of ruminant phylogeny were controlled for using phylogenies based on molecular data and phylogenetic generalized least-squares. Transferring results from domestic to wild ruminants, we hypothesized (1) a decrease in the proportion of Entodiniinae and an increase in that of Diplodiinae, with %grass in the natural diet; (2) a positive correlation between Diplodiinae and Isotrichidae; (3) no influence of BM on these protozoal groups. Based on the literature statements, we additionally expected that (4) protozoa diversity ...
Characterization and biological roles of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) isotypes are well known in monogastrics, but not in ruminants. However, a wealth of information has accumulated in little more than a decade on ruminant PPARs including isotype tissue distribution, response to synthetic and natural agonists, gene targets, and factors affecting their expression. Functional characterization demonstrated that, as in monogastrics, the PPAR isotypes control expression of genes involved in lipid metabolism, anti-inflammatory response, development, and growth. Contrary to mouse, however, the PPAR gamma. gene network appears to controls milk fat synthesis in lactating ruminants. As in monogastrics, PPAR isotypes in ruminants are activated by long-chain fatty acids, therefore, making them ideal candidates for fine-tuning metabolism in this species via nutrients. In this regard, using information accumulated in ruminants and monogastrics, we propose a model of PPAR ...
With adverse growing and harvesting conditions as well as the fluctuation of grain pricing, there have increased supplies of feed wheat used as livestock feed. However, the majority of wheat has been used as feed for poultry and swine, and ruminant producers have been reluctant to use large quantities of wheat because feeding wheat increases the risk of rumen acidosis due to rapid wheat starch digestion in the rumen. To avoid this problem, animal producers often believe that they must limit the amount of wheat in the diet to 50% or less. This chapter summarizes some research findings published in peer reviewed and extension articles on the use of feed wheat in ruminant diets. Substantial variation in physical and chemical composition exists among wheat samples, which are mainly influenced by type of wheat, variety and environmental conditions. Feed values of wheat are largely influenced by its physical properties and nutrient content; however, grain processing as well as its interaction with the

Before I leave Nome to board the Healy, I want to add a few more observations about this wonderful area. These are in no parcticular order.. When I came into Nome on the first day, I met Jack, a teacher from White Mountain. Jack is the only science teacher in the high school of 15 students! He teaches one subject to all 15 each year; this year it will be biology. By the time the students graduate, they will each complete four years of science.. On Friday, we went out on one of the Nome roads. There are approximately 250 miles of roads, mostly unpaved but well maintained, in the Nome road system. Two of the three main roads end at a small settlement, the other just ends. As we headed out to the Pilgrim River where Taylor and Banner wanted to fish, we spotted muskoxen on a hill in the distance. We parked the truck and hiked to the top of the hill where we were able to get close enough to identify more than 25 muskox enjoying an afternoon rest. The muskox is the only surviving member of a large ...

Bharal live in the Himalaya Mountains, as well as in other mountainous regions of China. They can be found at altitudes of between 10,000 and 18,000ft. They graze on the mountain slopes, and their grey coats give them excellent camouflage against predators. If they feel threatened, the Bharal stand perfectly still, blending in with the rocks. If that defensive tactic doesnt work, they can scamper up the cliffs with their sure-footed hooves before trying to blend in again. Of course, they cant always escape from predators. They make up a huge portion of the Snow Leopards diet, and it is estimated that the Leopards consume between 11% and 24% of the Bharal population every year ...
The internal mucosa has a honeycomb shape. When looking at the reticulum with ultrasonography it is a crescent shaped structure with a smooth contour.[2] The reticulum is adjacent to the diaphragm, lungs, abomasum, rumen and liver. The heights of the reticular crests and depth of the structures vary across ruminant animal species.[3] Grazing ruminants have higher crests than browsers. However, general reticulum size is fairly constant across ruminants of differing body size and feeding type. In a mature cow, the reticulum can hold around 5 gallons of liquid. The rumen and reticulum are very close in structure and function and can be considered as one organ. They are separated only by a muscular fold of tissue.

Margins of several cotyledons are tan (necrosis), and centers are mottled red-brown (congestion and exudation).. Infection in ruminants is usually subclinical but can cause anorexia and late abortion. Reports have implicated C burnetii as a cause of infertility and sporadic abortion with a necrotizing placentitis in ruminants. Experimental infection in cats causes transient fever, dullness, and anorexia lasting several days.. In domestic ruminants, gross lesions are nonspecific, and differential diagnosis should include infectious and noninfectious agents that cause abortion. Immunofluorescence test on paired sera taken ³2 wk apart can be used to detect recent infection; however, shedding of C burnetii may occur in the absence of a measurable serum antibody titer. Culture, immunohistochemical, and PCR tests may be used to identify the organism in tissues.. Diagnosis. In ...
Small Ruminants production, producers traits preferences and marketing system in agro- ecologies (AEZs) of Ada Barga and Ejere districts were under taken to characterize production system, reproduction performance, traits preferred for breeding as well as marketing and to document constraints of central highland sheep and goat in its environment. These two districts were selected based on potential for small ruminant production. Two districts stratified into highland (HL), midland (ML) and lowland (LL) agro ecologies and 180 households 69 from HL, 74 from ML and 37 from LL were purposively selected for this study. Detailed structured questionnaires, respondent interviews and FGD were employed as sampling technique.

Palaeomerycids, now extinct, were strange three-horned Eurasian Miocene ruminants known through fossils from Spain to China. In this article, the authors classify the palaeomerycid to their clade based on shared characteristics with the best-known species of the group and reassess their phylogenetic position among ruminants, which is currently disputed. The authors use well-preserved remains of a new palaeomerycid, Xenokeryx amidalae, which included a complete sample of cranial--including both frontal and supra-occipital t-shaped cranial appendages--dental, and postcranial remains, from middle Miocene deposits of Spain ...

That afternoon, I was particularly excited about my digital footprints. At 78°19′ N, this would be my northernmost run - by a long shot. As I loped along through loamy tundra, past the rotting huts of a long--abandoned outpost, the cold air filled my lungs and stung my fingertips. My pace flagged at a stream, where frigid runoff tumbled down from the surrounding peaks. A herd of muskoxen lumbered by on the horizon, and a quick white flash told of an Arctic hare. After about three kilometres, I stopped and laid my palm against the icy terminus of Brother John Glacier. I was, in my own way, etching my name among those of the many who have felt the call and laboured northward..

There is a growing realization worldwide that biodiversity is fundamental to agricultural production and food security, as well as a valuable ingredient of environmental conservation. Flowering strips around the border of the crops serves as an important function to improve the biodiversity, besides this they play a major role in the ruminant nutrition and serve as a source of numerous beneficial compounds. It is well known that seeds store their food reserves for next generation mainly in the form of lipids; some of the seeds from these flowering strips could be an interesting source of lipids. These seed oils could play important role in food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and other industries. The extraction of seed oil from four such plant species in Belgium ...

These are just estimates and based off of our personal experience; the amounts will fluctuate according to your use. Remember, our products are not only designed for your herd, but are intended for you; so whether we are helping you feed, supplement, or treat - we can enrich any feeding plan. The price estimates below do not reflect shipping and handling, as they fluctuate and must factor in circumstances that vary among buyers (i.e., distance, shipping method, etc.). To feed one average sized ruminant, 1/4 cup, twice daily it would cost about $0.49 per day for a 10 lb bucket. The cost would fall to about $0.43 per day if you were using a 20 lb. bucket. For one animal at this feeding rate, there are about 53 servings in a 10 lb bucket and about 107 servings in a 20 lb bucket. We, at Casually Cockeyed Farms, realize this cost may be out of reach for some, and that is why we design our products with every farm in mind. We use the highest of quality ingredients; however, we pay a premium to do so. ...

We describe the macroscopic anatomy of the intestine of the giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis). The small intestine was divided into duodenum, jejunum and ileum as usual. The caecum was attached to the ileum by a long ileocaecal fold, and to the proximal ansa of the ascending colon by a caecocolic fold. The ascending colon was the most developed portion of the gross intestine and had the most complex arrangement with three ansae: the proximal ansa, the spiral ansa and the distal ansa. The proximal ansa completely encircled the caecum, describing a 360° gyrus, and represented the widest portion of the intestine. The spiral ansa was formed by three and a half centripetal gyri, a central flexure and three centrifugal gyri. The last centrifugal gyrus left the spiral and described nine flexures of different form and direction over the ...

Faecal DNA is a potentially powerful method for identifying cryptic mammalian species. In New Zealand, 10 species of ungulate (Order: Artiodactyla) have established wild populations and are managed as pests because of their impacts on native ecosystems. However, identifying the ungulate species present within a management area based on pellet morphology is unreliable. We present a method that enables reliable identification of 10 ungulate species (red deer, sika deer, rusa deer, fallow deer, sambar deer, white-tailed deer, Himalayan tahr, Alpine chamois, feral sheep, and feral goat) from swabs of faecal pellets.

Elastic Cartilage. Giraffes average between 14 and 17 feet tall, with the neck providing approximately six feet of that height. Although giraffes have extremely long necks, they only have seven cervical vertebrae, which is the same number found in humans. Top Answer. Each vertebrae may be over 10 inches long. Of the proteins in giraffe and okapi genes, 19.4% are identical. How many neck vertebrae does a giraffe have? How many thoracic vertebrae do giraffes have? Humans have 5 sacral vertebrae. Giraffes body weight can vary between 2,000 and 3,500 pounds. The coat patterns of modern giraffes may also have coincided with these habitat changes.

This study was carried out in the eastern Transvaal Lowveld in an area 2 with a giraffe population density of 2,6 per km . Lions are the only predators and it was estimated that 48% of the calves die in their first year. The sex ratio departs significantly from unity in favour of females. Plant fragments in the rumen were identified. Giraffe subsist on the leaves of trees and shrubs, though fruit, flowers, twigs and grass were also utilised. Marked seasonal changes in the plant species selected were determined by availability and different habitats were utilised accordingly. Chemical analysis of rumen content showed correlations of nutritional value with species eaten and seasonal phenological changes of the vegetation. Tooth eruption, wear and incremental layers in the cementum were found to be suitable criteria for age determination. Total body mass was measured and carcasses dressed out at 61,9% for males and 56,6% for females. Lower mass and lower proportion of fat was found in the dry ...
Ruminant livestock include cattle, sheep, and goats. Ruminants are hoofed mammals that have a unique digestive system that allows them to better use energy from fibrous plant material than other herbivores. Unlike monogastrics such as swine and poultry, ruminants have a digestive system designed to ferment feedstuffs and provide precursors for energy for the animal to use. By
The heads of both male and female giraffes have a pair of hair-covered horns called ossicones, which are permanently covered by skin and ending in a tuft of black hair. Male giraffes use their horns to playfully fight with one another. The horns of male giraffes are larger than those of female giraffes, growing up to 25 centimetres (about 10 inches) long.. As male giraffes age, calcium deposits form on their skulls and other horn-like bumps develop. Giraffes can have up to three of these large bumps, two in the rear of the skull and one in the forehead region, so that it may look like they have five horns.. This characteristic which is found in no other mammal is linked to the fights that male giraffes stage to establish dominance for mating.. Their small horns on top of their heads are covered in hair and are quite often used in combat between males (bulls), particularly when conflicting for dominance over a mating partner. The horns on female giraffes are quite smaller and more ...

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In vitro and in situ methods using the in sacco technique have a wide application in ruminant nutrition as they allow the degradability and quality of forages and ruminant diets to be determined quicker and at a lower cost than in vivo methods. These trials make use of artificial fibre bags, made of polyester (dacron) or nylon which are available in variable pore sizes. Results from such degradability trials are of great value to feed formulation programs such as AMTS.cattle and CPM Dairy and the more accurate the results are obtained from such trials the more accurate feed formulation models are enabling the ruminant nutritionist to formulate the best diet possible to reach the genetic potential of ruminants. The accepted method for in sacco trials (NRC, 2001) requires that the feed samples are ground through a 2 mm screen. This usually results in a variety of particle sizes, including a significant amount of extremely fine particles. Research has, however, shown that these ...

Synchronization of rumen available protein and energy is one of the conceptual methods to increase the efficiency of utilization of nutrients by the ruminants The concept of synchronization energy and protein was first by Jhonson, Implying that maximum microbial protein synthesis could be achieved by matching the rate of Organic Matter and protein degradation. Synchronization of rumen available protein and energy is one of the conceptual methods to increase the efficiency of utilization of nutrients by the ruminants. Feed protein are degraded by microorganism in the rumen via amino acids into ammonia and branched chain fatty acids. Non-protein nitrogen (NPN) from feed and urea recycled from saliva and from the blood across the rumen wall also contribute to the ammonia pool. Microbial protein synthesis is important for ruminant. Current concepts of ruminant nutrition focus on maximizing ruminal microbial protein production. Animal agricultural production systems are major sources of nonpoint pollution
© 2016 Elsevier Ltd. Large mammals have drastically declined in the past few decades yet we know little about their ecology. Giraffe numbers for instance, have dropped by more than 40% in the last 15 years and recently, a skin disease, has been observed in numerous giraffe populations across Africa. The disease(s), commonly referred to as giraffe skin disease (GSD), manifests as lesions, wrinkled skin, and encrustations that can affect the limbs, shoulder or neck of giraffes. Here, we review GSD cases from literature reports and surveying efforts of individuals working with giraffes in the wild and in captivity. The aim of this review was to describe spatial variation in the anatomical location of lesions, prevalence, and severity of GSD. In total, we retrieved 16 published sources that referenced GSD and we received 63 respondents to our survey. We found that GSD has been observed in 13 protected areas across 7 countries in Africa and in 11 out of 48 zoos distributed across 6 countries. The prevalence

Different types of adipokines, hepatokines, and myokines, which act as cytokines, are secreted from adipose, liver, and muscle tissue, respectively, and have been identified and examined for their physiological roles in humans and disease in animal models. Recently, various studies of these cytokines have been conducted in ruminants, including dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, and goat. Interestingly, a few cytokines from these tissues in ruminants play an important role in the post-parturition, lactation, and fattening ...
The Reticulated giraffes distribution: western Kenya, southern Ethiopia and eastern Uganda. Description: Giraffes are long-necked browsing animals that taxonomists place in a separate family, Giraffidae, from other artiodactylids: camels, deer and bovines. Possessing only seven cervical vertebrae (like other mammals), giraffes, at almost 19 feet, are the tallest of all mammals. Adult males weigh as much as 4,000 lbs. They are characterized by having two knobs, called ossicones, on their head. Some individuals may have additional bumps on the sides of their skulls that are irregularly located. Unlike antlers on deer or horns on bovids, ossicones are permanently covered by hair and never shed. After a gestation of 15 months, females give birth to a single young; twins occur rarely. Adults are not territorial but rather feed over a large roaming area. When alarmed, giraffes can reach speeds of 30 to 36 miles per hour. Unlike most mammals giraffes walk using both legs from the same side of the ...
Giraffids like Palaeotragus, Shansitherium and Samotherium appeared 14 mya and lived throughout Africa and Eurasia. These animals had bare ossicones and small cranial sinuses and were longer with broader skulls.[11][12] Paleotragus resembled the okapi and may have been its ancestor.[11] Others find that the okapi lineage diverged earlier, before Giraffokeryx.[12] Samotherium was a particularly important transitional fossil in the giraffe lineage as its cervical vertebrae was intermediate in length and structure between a modern giraffe and an okapi, and was more vertical than the okapis.[13] Bohlinia, which first appeared in southeastern Europe and lived 9-7 mya was likely a direct ancestor of the giraffe. Bohlinia closely resembled modern giraffes, having a long neck and legs and similar ossicones and dentition.[11]. Bohlinia entered China and northern India in response to climate change. From there, the genus Giraffa evolved and, around 7 mya, entered Africa.[14] Further climate changes ...

In ruminant animals a considerable amount of degradation and synthesis of protein occurs in the rumen and the material that becomes available for digestion can differ considerably from what was originally present in the food. Consequently, different approaches for evaluating protein sources are necessary for ruminant and non-ruminant animals.. Ruminants have protein requirements at two levels, with one being the nitrogen (N) requirements of rumen microbes and the other is the protein needs of the host. An important feature of ruminant animals is having rumen microbes that are able to synthesise protein using nitrogen in the diet as well as having the ability to synthesise protein from non-protein nitrogen (NPN) sources..

Not to say I dont like giraffes. They are beautiful animals, so graceful and curious, and they have blue tongues. I was impressed with how Anne stepped out of the world she knew, the safety of it, and explored what she was driven by. In 1956, Anne left for a journey to South Africa to be the first person, let alone the first woman, to study the life of giraffes. Anne had many challenges from first being a woman. For this reason alone she was turned down. Then Anne came across the bias of apartheid. Neither of these two issues stopped Anne from following what she knew she needed to do.. Something about her story struck me. Anne reports that her mother taught her to treat people as human beings, not by their color or their sex, and this is how she treats people. This led to people turning away from her, but she did not turn ...
A 39-week pregnant SC woman posted a almost 8-minute-long video of herself prancing around in a giraffe mask, hands on hips, belly displayed in all its glory, to Facebook late Sunday.. For almost three weeks, millions of people have tuned in to the live-stream of April the Giraffe as she awaits the birth of her calf at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, N.Y. As of 12 p.m. ET Monday, the video had over 10 million views and 235,000 shares.. She made a decision to have her own giraffe cam style set up for her own waiting. Thats when a stroke of comedic genius hit her and her husband and they made a decision to create their own video.. Dietrich also commented she did not think so many people would get a kick out of it.. It was my husbands idea to order a mask off Amazon and my idea to do a live feed last night to look like Aprils, she told HuffPost.. She donned a giraffe mask, and the rest is history. Itll be Dietrichs fourth child.. Clearly we live an exciting life over here in the ...
The type, amount and quality of hay you choose to feed should be determined by what sort of horse youre feeding. The goal in all cases is to keep forage in front of your horse as close to 24/7 as possible so that it can eat a whole bunch of small forage meals at will much as it would do when grazing. Keeping the caecum and hindgut full of forage pays a lot of dividends but perhaps the biggest one is that forage helps regulate stomach acid production (preventing stomach ulcers) and all the potential malaise from hindgut acidosis that can come from over production of stomach acid. Hindgut acidosis CAN lead to laminitis, colonic ulcers, and colic. Another side note here is that stomach ulcers and hindgut ulcers require different treatment. Everyone thinks of omeprazole for ulcers (GastroGard, UlcerGard), but this only treats stomach ulcers, NOT hindgut ulcers. In fact some research is indicating that treating for stomach ulcers with omeprazole can exacerbate hindgut ulcers in some horses. Back to ...

The aim of the present thesis was to conduct an extensive characterization of S. aureus isolated from small ruminant milk and dairy products. S. aureus is considered a major public health concern because of its ability to give disease in human, after consumption of contaminated foods with enterotoxins. This pathogen can aquire resistance against several antibiotics used in human and veterinary practices. Farms and cheese-making plants can serve as a reservoir of S. aureus and are involved in the spread of the microorganism into environment. Concern exists on the possible acquisition of antibiotic resistance by human strains, as consequence of exchange of mobile genetic elements with strains of animal origin. The extent and impact of these strains on human health was also assessed ...
Background Health of mammary glands is fundamental for milk and dairy products hygiene and quality, with huge impacts on consumers welfare. Methods This study aims to investigate the microbial agents (bacteria, fungi and lentiviruses) isolated from 89 macroscopically healthy udders of regularly slaughtered small ruminants (41 sheep, 48 goats), also correlating their presence with the histological findings. Multinomial logistic regression was applied to evaluate the association between lesions and positivity for different microbial isolates, animal age and bacteria. Results Twenty-five samples were microbiologically negative; 138 different bacteria were isolated in 64 positive udders. Coagulase-negative staphylococci were the most prevalent bacteria isolated (46.42%), followed by environmental opportunists (34.76%), others (10.14%) and pathogens (8.68%). Most mammary glands showed coinfections (75%). Lentiviruses were detected in 39.3% of samples. Histologically, chronic non-suppurative mastitis was

Given the complexity of evaluating intake on grazing, some compounds have been studied to promote qualitative and quantitative estimates of animal physiology. In this sense, the technique using n-alkanes as a marker has been used in several animal species, especially in grazing ruminants (Dove and Mayes 1996). By definition, validation under grazing or browsing conditions is not possible, because actual intakes are unknown (Dove and Mayes 2005). Thus, the aim of the study was to evaluate the methodology of n-alkanes to estimate herbage intake by sheep in metabolic cages.
I am a lecturer in Animal Science and Production. My research focuses on ruminant nutrition and gut microbiology. My Ph.D. through the University of Sydney investigated the effects of various feed additives and biofuel by-products on performance, carcass characteristics, fatty acid profiles and the molecular regulation of adipogenesis in lambs. I then went on to complete a post-doc in Canada (AAFC and Uni of Alberta), investigating the effects of weaning age and strategy on the development of the ruminal microbiome in dairy calves. This theme continued during my 2 year stay in INRA, France where I was awarded an individual Marie-Curie Fellowship to investigate the effects of additives on gut microbiome establishment and lifelong effects on the animal. Additionally, I have a strong interest in feed efficiency, and environmentally sustainable production systems. I have published 22 peer-reviewed journal articles, including 3 invited reviews and 1 contribution to a technical report by the FAO. I ...
Reproductive disorders are one of the most critical problems that reduce the production and productivity of dairy cows.

The domestication and use of animals for our benefit entails our responsibility for their quality of life. Animal welfare is a prerequisite for any production system to be ethically defensible and socially acceptable. In nature, animals evolved in a changing environment and developed adaptive mechanisms to increase fitness. Cattle evolved in extensive rangelands, in herds with complex social hierarchy, searching for forage and minerals sources. Grazing cattle production systems have the potential to allow the animals to express their natural behaviour, maintain health and experience positive emotional states. Nonetheless, grazing cattle endure many challenges throughout the production cycle; from tick-borne diseases to lack of access to water and shade, cattle welfare may be impaired if the production systems do not allow the animals to cope with such stressors.The goal of this article collection is to identify such stressors present in husbandry systems; assess to at extent those affect health, welfare
