Dairy cows in small holders in Phu Dong contribute to improve the welfare of farm households. It generates income, provides a highly nutritious food for people, create employment opportunities in the society. However, most dairy farmers have a few cows, which will be difficult to improve their lives. They are more vulnerable because milk is easy to be rotten, feed costs are high and increasing; market is fluctuated with shock while gate farm price is almost stable. This study analyzes the situation of milk production and marketing in small holders in Phu Dong. The Heckman two-step procedure is used to estimate factors affecting the decision of market participation and milk marketed volume of dairy households. The main findings are: The pure HF breed dairy cows produced higher productivity but shorter lactation period than that of cross breed cows. The productivity was highest in the pure HF breed medium-size farms and lowest in the cross breed medium-size farms. However, there is not much difference in milk yield per lactation between these breeds. Age of the household, education level, experience in dairy production, distance from milk market and number of milking cows significant impact the probability of the household in milk market participation. Number of milking cows, education level of the households, and non-dairy source financial incomes are important factors affecting sale volume of milk. [less ▲]

This study was designed to establish possible factors affecting plasma pregnancy-associated glycoprotein (PAG) concentrations during early pregnancy in high producing dairy cows with live fetuses. Blood samples were obtained on days 35, 42, 49, 56 and 63 of gestation from 80 lactating cows in two herds carrying live fetuses. Radioimmunoassay systems were used to determine PAG (RIA-497 and RIA-706) and progesterone concentrations. We evaluated the effects on PAG concentrations of herd, lactation number, sire of fetus, day of gestation, fetus number, plasma progesterone and milk production at each time point established, along with possible paired interactions. Mean milk production per cow approached 41 kg during the study period. PAG concentrations were not affected by herd, lactation number or plasma progesterone concentration. Significant positive effects on PAG concentrations were shown by the gestation day, and the interaction between day of gestation and twin pregnancy. Significant differences between bulls and a significant negative correlation between milk production and PAG values on day 63 of pregnancy were also detected. Proportions of blood samples showing undetectable PAG levels and false negative diagnoses throughout the study period were significantly higher (P < 0.001) using the RIA-497 system (2.5% and 5.3%, respectively) compared to RIA-706 (0% and 0.8%, respectively). Our findings suggest that PAG concentrations during the early fetal period are related to the day of gestation, milk production, number of fetuses and sire of fetus in high producing dairy cows. Under our working conditions, the RIA-706 method was better at detecting plasma PAG molecules than the RIA-497 system. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Test day (TD) records of milk, fat and protein yields and somatic cell scores (SCS) were studied in Holstein cows in Tunisia. There were 43114, 32923 and 24633 lactation records collected on first, second and third parity cows between 1992 and 2004 in 182 herds. Records were of cows born in Tunisia (22000 cows) and those imported from Europe (10830 cows) and North America (850 cows). Variation of total days in milk (DIM) per lactation was studied in function of the herd, calving year x calving season interaction and the origin of the cow. Test-day records were analyzed using a linear model that included calving year x calving season and herd x test-day date interactions, calving season, calving year and origin of the cow. The effective length of lactation was affected by all factors included in the model (p< 0.0001) in all lactations. Test- day milk, protein and fat yields and TD SCS varied (p< 0.01) with management and climatic factors (calving year x calving season and herd x test-day date interactions and year and season of calving). A cow produced 18.8 kg, 0.61 kg and 0.58 kg of milk, fat and protein yields on a daily basis in all lactations, respectively. Average SCS was 2.8 in the three lactations. The origin of the cow was an important (p < 0.05) source of variation for DIM, yields and SCS in all lactations except for first lactation cell scores (p>0.05). Cows born in Tunisia seemed to perform better than imported cows in the first lactation while imported cows showed clearly better performances in later lactations. North American cows produced the highest yields and had the lowest SCS among all cows in the second and third lactations. Imported high producing cows seemed able to adjust to Tunisian management conditions following their first lactation. [less ▲]

Milk urea concentration is routinely determined in commercial dairy farms along with the official milk analyses carried out on milk samples for the dairies by the “Comité du lait”. The milk urea content do not modify milk price but can be useful for the farmers for diet calculation, milk urea content being related to the energy-protein ratio in the diet. The aim of this paper was to study the evolution of the milk urea content according to the months and the areas. Milk urea concentration changed according to the months owing to the diet: the summer diets, mainly composed by grass in many farms, were characterized by higher nitrogen content which as result an increase in milk urea concentration. The geographic areas can also influence milk urea concentration due to dietary difference. For example, in the Hesbaye area, beet and cereals are produced while in the Ardennes, grasslands are dominant. The urea content in milk can be an useful measurement for the diet calculations in order to decrease nitrogen waste and to reduce the feed costs. [less ▲]

In cerebral folate deficiency syndrome, the presence of autoantibodies against the folate receptor (FR) explains decreased folate transport to the central nervous system and the clinical response to folinic acid. Autoantibody crossreactivity with milk FR from different species prompted us to test the effect of a milk-free diet. Intervention with a milkfree diet in 12 children (nine males, three females; mean age 6y [SD 4y 11mo], range 1-19y), decreased autoantibody titer significantly from 2.08pmol of FR blocked per ml of serum (SD 2.1; range 0.24-8.35) to 0.35pmol (SD 0.49; range 0-1.32; p=0.012) over 3 to 13 months, whereas FR autoantibody titer increased significantly to 6.53 (SD 6.08; range 0.54-14.07; p=0.013) in nine children who were reexposed to milk for 6 to 14 weeks. In 12 children on a normal diet (eight males, four females; mean age 5y 5mo [SD 4y 1mo], range 1y 6mo-16y 4mo), the antibody titer increased significantly from 0.84pmol of FR blocked per ml (SD 0.39; range 0.24-1.44) to 3.04pmol (SD 1.42; range 0.84-6.01; p=0.001) over 10 to 24 months. Decreasing the autoantibody titer with a milk-free diet in conjunction with folinic acid therapy may be advocated for these patients. © 2008 Blackwell Publishing Ltd. [less ▲]

Multipotent stem cells of adult skin are found in distinct biological locations identified as niches. These stem cell populations are defined by specific molecular and functional attributes. The epidermal stem cells are found in the interfollicular areas and in the bulge and isthmus of the hair follicles. Dermal stem cells are harbored in the peripilar connective tissue sheaths and in the hair papilla. Some skin stem cells are found in extracutaneous sites. Other stem cells are involved in pathology, such as neoplastic stem cells identified in malignant melanomas. [less ▲]

Nowadays, compact sources relatively warm like surfaces of nearby stars, circumstellar environments of stars from early stages to the most evolved ones and surroundings of active galactic nuclei can be investigated at milli-arcsecond scales only with the VLT in its interferometric mode. We propose a spectro-imager, named VSI (VLTI spectro-imager), which is capable to probe these sources both over spatial and spectral scales in the near-infrared domain. This instrument will provide information complementary to what is obtained at the same time with ALMA at different wavelengths and the extreme large telescopes. [less ▲]

A sapphire backscattering monochromator with 1.1 (1) meV bandwidth for hard X-rays (20-40 keV) is reported. The optical quality of several sapphire crystals has been studied and the best crystal was chosen to work as the monochromator. The small energy bandwidth has been obtained by decreasing the crystal volume impinged upon by the beam and by choosing the crystal part with the best quality. The monochromator was tested at the energies of the nuclear resonances of (121)Sb at 37.13 keV, (125)Te at 35.49 keV, (119)Sn at 23.88 keV, (149)Sm at 22.50 keV and (151)Eu at 21.54 keV. For each energy, specific reflections with sapphire temperatures in the 150-300 K region were chosen. Applications to nuclear inelastic scattering with these isotopes are demonstrated. [less ▲]
