Factors Influencing the Quality of Frozen/Thawed Semen from Estonian Holstein AI Bulls, and Relationships between Semen Quality Parameters and in vivo FertilityPeeter Padrik
At present, dairy farming is definitely the most profitable sector of Estonia’s cattle industry. The effectiveness of milk production is dependent not only on the availability of high-quality genetic material but also on several other factors, including the quality of frozen bull semen. The purpose of this research was to assess the effect of different factors such as age, the proportion of Holstein genes, and season of the year on the quality of semen collected...
Research of a contact stresses in swivel elements of flexible shaft in screw conveyor for transportation of agricultural materialsVolodymyr Bulgakov, Jüri Olt, Semjons Ivanovs, Oleksandra Trokhaniak, Jaroslav Gadzalo, Valerii Adamchuk, Mykhailo Chernovol, Simone Pascuzzi, Francesco Santoro & Margus Arak
The paper presents the new design of the rotating part with ball-bearing swivel joints between its sections for flexible screw conveyors. The new design provides for the improvement of the operation efficiency and loading capacity, the enhancement of the technological capabilities and the reduction of the admissible curvature radius. The contact stresses in the swivel element as the most loaded area in the rotating part have been analysed. It has been established that the maximum...
Consumption data are measured in the real household for two weeks and then multiplied to the whole year. This is an average family with 4 members. Consumption behavior is quite similar whole the year. Production graph is measured in real wind generator as described in the paper and when scaled to certain annual production.
The contradictory statements and opinions, which need by the mind of author additional explanation or disentangle are in the work followings: stages in the forming soil covers' humus status; additional carbon sequestration into the soil; discord between consumption and accumulation of soil organic matter; the influence of land use, land-use change and soil tillage on soil humus status; permanent and dynamic properties of soil; the role of agriculture in carbon turnover; degradation of soil fertility;...
This paper aims to present the use of the guttation test method to establish the relationship between guttation and potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) yield. The laboratory tests (in vitro L.) under household conditions were carried out. To assess the state of the potato (variety 'Ando') yield the field (0.07 ha) of the family farm "Miili" were used. Assessment of the state of guttation plant barley (Hordeum vulgaris L.) variety 'Anni' by using of hydro-thermostat in...
After birth, neonatal ruminants go through crucial and sensitive period of rapid development and growth. During this period, they may interact with variety of microorganisms found in the surrounding environment. It would be beneficial for both the farmer and the veterinarian to have general biomarkers, useful in managing of this adaptation process. Such a tool could help in improving the prediction of the animals’ performance in the herd. The interactions between the ruminant and infectious...
Dragi cititori, Această lucrare este publicată ca urmare a unui proiect implementat în Republica Moldova de către Universitatea Estoniană de Științe ale Vieții. Rezultatul primului proiect a fost o carte care a oferit o imagine de ansamblu asupra diversificării economiei rurale estoniene. Ulterior, partenerii proiectului au dorit să afle mai multe despre experiențele specifice de dezvoltare a produselor și despre problemele micilor producători estonieni. De fapt, două tipuri de agricultură se pot încadra într-o țară...
The data were collected during July-August 2015 in locations with coordinates in dataset. The sites have unique names and their management has been evaluated as permanently managed, restored before 2005 and restored after 2005. Their condition is estimated on expert level as good or poor, regarding vegetation composition and height. The data were collected from 20 plots of the size 0,5 x 0,5 m. In the dataset the number marks in how many plots out...
List of medicinal plant species in the semi-natural Miscanthus sinensis grasslands in Nagano and Yamanashi Prefectures, JapanIndrek Melts
The dataset collected from the typical and the most representative type of semi-natural grasslands in Satoyama landscape in Honshu island, Japan. Twelve grasslands were located on the Kaida Plateau between 1000–1300 m a.s.l. in Nagano Prefecture (approximate geographical coordinate of the study area: 35.931555N, 137.604300E) and six grasslands were located on the north-eastern foot of Mt. Fuji between 1000–1300 m a.s.l. in Yamanashi Prefecture (approximate geographical coordinate of the study area: 35.431819N, 138.812522E). The study sites...
Research into the parameters of a potato harvester's potato heap distributor, and the justification of those parametersJüri Olt, Valerii Adamchuk, Viktor Korniushyn, Viktor Melnik, Hryhoriy Kaletnik, Yevhen Ihnatiev & Risto Ilves
The low levels of efficiency and general quality when it comes to the use of potato harvesters in difficult soil and climatic conditions substantiate the relevance of the problem which is faced in terms of research by technologically advanced equipment and tools. They are looking to increase the efficiency of potato harvesters. This paper serves to justify the formation of the design and technical parameters of the V-type distributor, which directly acts on the undermined...

The use of monensin to reduce health disorders associated with negative energy balance in transition cows is widely used. Precalving continuous-release monensin capsule administration affected postcalving milk FA profile indicating alterations in the rumen microbiota of these cows.
Kliimaneutraalsuse saavutamiseks 2050. aastaks on oluline kasvuhoonegaaside (KHG) heitkoguste vähendamine ja sidumisvõimekuse suurendamine kõigis sektorites. Et eesmärki täita, tuleb seada selged sihid, hinnates erinevates sektorites KHG heite vähendamise ja sidumise suurendamise potentsiaali ning käsitleda sektori mõju laiemalt ka majanduse konkurentsivõimele. Maakasutuse, maakasutuse muutuse ja metsanduse (LULUCF) sidumisvõimekuse uuring on valminud Keskkonnaministeeriumi tellimusel analüüsimaks kompleksselt LULUCFi sektori KHG sidumisvõimaluste potentsiaali ja ulatust 2030. ja 2050. aasta kliimapoliitika eesmärkide täitmiseks arvestades sealjuures ka pikemaajalist perspektiivi (kuni 2100....
