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 ...
Muskox, named for their strong musky smell, are an Artic mammal found northern North America, including Greenland, the Canadian territories, and Alaska.
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 ...
Every winter, people camp out for days in a parking lot in western Alaska to get permits to hunt muskox. Its kind of a big deal.
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. In immature ruminants a reticular groove is formed by the muscular fold of the reticulum. This allows milk to pass by the reticulorumen straight into the abomasum. ...
Goat, placenta. The intercotyledonary placenta is thickened, opaque, and multifocally covered by tan clumps of exudate. 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. Results revealed that the overall mean family size, cultivated land, grass land per households in mean (SD) were 7.1(2.4), 2.4(1.7) and 0.7(0.6) respectively. Both sheep and goat were significantly affected by AEZs. The average mean of sheep and goat size per household were 10.2, ...

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.. In North Pole: Nature and Culture, his exhaustively researched new book, Michael Bravo delves into the history of that northward obsession.

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 ...

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 ...
This comprehensive volume examines the interrelationships of nitrogen and energy nutrition of ruminants. It provides exhaustive coverage of basic concepts, applications, and new research developments. Rumen microbial activity is emphasized. The author, an expert in animal nutrition, discusses new systems of determining dietary energy requirements, the effect of processing feedstuffs, and stress factors. He reviews the availability of nutrients in grains, distillers grain residues, oilseed meals, molasses, silages, pastures, crop residues, and aquatic plants. Growth stimulants, nutritional management of ruminants in feedlots and pastures, and the value of feed additives are also among the topics considered. The scope of coverage provided by this volume will make it the leading reference for teachers, researchers, consultants, livestock producers, feed manufacturers, and all others who are involved in ruminant feeding and nutrition. From the Preface: This volume covers research on various ...
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

AU - Katoh, Kazuo. PY - 2016/1/1. Y1 - 2016/1/1. N2 - Since the discovery of leptin secreted from adipocytes, specialized tissues and cells have been found that secrete the several peptides (or cytokines) that are characterized to negatively and positively regulate the metabolic process. 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 ...
Up until two decades ago, giraffes had often been described as socially aloof.. A 1991 study went as far as describing the species as forming no lasting bonds with its fellows and associating in the most casual way.. Though giraffes are known to roam around in herds, it appears that individual giraffes are perpetually changing their alliances, which led the researchers to the conclusion that they dont manifest considerable social relationships to a more considerable extent than those between mothers and calves.. However, modern technology helped scientists turn that speculation around - Digital cameras and new means of analyzing data showed that the tall animals are socially advanced, more than theyve ever gotten credit for.. Muller and Stephen Harris, a zoologist from the University of Bristol, reviewed a total of over 400 studies analyzing the social behaviour of giraffes.. They found proof that, while solitary exemplars are a common sight, giraffes can also stick together in small ...
Parasitism is a major challenge to the health and welfare of organic livestock. The PrOPara (Tackling the parasitological challenges in organic ruminant farming practices) project evaluated available means to monitor and control endoparasites and generated information and tools that could be readily used by organic farmers to improve animal health and welfare. One of the key activities was assessing the socio-economic impacts of alternative gastro-intestinal nematode (GIN) control practices in small ruminants. I sat down with the project task leader, Simon Moakes, to discuss the project and the socio-economic assessment.
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 ...
The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development regulates stockfeed to safeguard animal and public health and maintain export markets for Western Australias livestock produce. If livestock consume unsuitable feed it may cause sickness or death in livestock and may make their meat, milk and eggs unsuitable for human consumption. The regulations for stockfeed cover the following areas: Standards for stockfeed Certain substances, such as chemicals, medications and heavy metals, must not be present in stockfeed, or must not be present at harmful levels. Stockfeed labeling Stockfeed must be correctly labeled to reduce the risk of livestock being fed unsuitable feed. Feeding restrictions for ruminant animals - the ruminant feed ban It is illegal to feed any meat products, such as meat meal, to ruminant animals. This feed ban is in place to minimise the risk of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE or mad cow disease) occurring in Australia. Ruminants include cattle, sheep, goats, deer, alpacas

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.. The protein percentage of any feed is calculated by determining the amount of nitrogen (N) in that feed and multiplying it by 6.25 (protein generally contains 16% nitrogen hence 100/16 = 6.25).. ...
I watched an incredible movie a few months back called The Woman Who Loves Giraffes. My interest was less about giraffes and more about the story of Dr. Anne Innis Dagg. 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.
