Energy Balance in the Body of Dairy Cattle as the Criterion of the Optimal Level of Feeding

The algorithm for estimating energy balance in the body as a criterion for the optimality of animals feeding has been developed and tested in the conditions of a modern complex of large-group, non-tethered keeping of highly productive dairy cattle and its free access to the feed table in accordance with accepted feeding standards. Its essence lies in the fact that, based on the results of using a full-feed mix, the intake of net energy of lactation with the feed mixture was calculated by the formula: NElact1 = NEyield + NEmaint1, where NElact1 – net energy of lactation received with the consumed food, MJ; NEyield - energy value of daily milk yield in net energy, MJ; NEmaint1 - net energy of maintenance received with the consumed food. In parallel with this, the need of dairy cattle in net energy of lactation was determined by the formula NElact2 = NEmaint2 + NEyield, where NEmaint2 = 0,4 × W0.75. The ratio NElact1 / NElact2 equal to one corresponds to a zero balance, less than one to a negative balance, and more than one to a positive balance. The difference between NElact1 and NElact2 reflects the value of the balance in +/- NEMJ.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters is an international peer reviewed publication which publishes scientific research & review articles related to insects that contain information of interest to a wider audience, e.g. papers bearing on the theoretical, genetic, agricultural, medical and biodiversity issues. Emphasis is also placed on the selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance. Papers on non-insect groups are no longer accepted. In addition to full-length research articles and reviews, the journal publishes interpretive articles in a Forum section, Short Communications, and Letters to the Editor. The journal publishes reports on all phases of medical entomology and medical acarology, including the systematics and biology of insects, acarines, and other arthropods of public health and veterinary significance.

Call for Papers
Entomology and Applied Science Letters supports the submission of entomological papers that contain information of interest to a wider reader groups e. g. papers bearing on taxonomy, phylogeny, biodiversity, ecology, systematic, agriculture, morphology. The selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance is also important. Distinguished entomologists drawn from different parts of the world serve as honorary members of the Editorial Board. The journal encompasses all the varied aspects of entomological research. This has become the need felt in scientific research due to the emphasis on intra-, inter-, and multi-disciplinary approach.
