Summary: This study aims to compare fatty acid content in oils obtained from rape and camelina seeds that were cultivated in the western part of Romania, more  specifically  in Arad  countyin  the  agronomic  year  2017-2018  with  its climate  particularities. After  harvest  the  seed  samples  were  processed  using  GC-MC method andinterpreted in the laboratories of the Research Facility of BUASMV (BanatUniversity of Agricultural Sciences and veterinary Medicine).

Agri-food waste (AFW) and by-products represent sources of phytochemicals, such as phenols and antioxidant compounds that can be used as functional ingredients in animal feed. In this study, a selection of AFW and by-products were collected and analysed for their nutrient composition. Fruit and vegetable waste (FVW), orange peel, strawberry, citrus pulp and Camelina sativa cake showed a total phenolic content ranging from 238.0 ± 4.24 to 1583.0 ± 154.35 mg TAE/100g. Grape marc also showed the highest AOC (15440.7 ± 2671.85 mg TE/100g). In all other samples, AOC ranged from 43.3 ± 3.17 to 1703.9 ± 391.07 mg TE/100g. After physiological extraction,...

Summary: Immune system and inflammatory responses are affected by α-linolenic acid (αLA: 18:3 ω-3). The objective of this study was to determine the effects of αLA-enriched rations on gene expression of systemic (blood) and local (mammary gland) inflammatory markers in Holstein dairy cattle. Further, the effect of dietary treatments was evaluated on the concentration of αLA in serum phospholipids. Camelina (Camelina sativa) meal (containing 24·2% αLA) was fed at 0, 3, 6, and 9% (dry matter basis) replacing canola meal (rich in 18:1 ω-9) to provide rations with incremental concentrations...

Summary: While investigating the roles of different G-protein subunits in modulating the oil content in Camelina (Camelina sativa), an oil seed crop, we uncovered a role of Gβ proteins in controlling anisotropic cell expansion. Knockdown of Gβ genes causes reduced longitudinal and enhanced transverse expansion, resulting in altered cell, tissue, and organ shapes in transgenic plants during vegetative and reproductive development. These plants also exhibited substantial changes in their fatty acid and phospholipid profiles, which possibly leads to the increased oil content of the transgenic seeds. This increase is potentially...

Summary: The effects of feeding concentrates with alternative ingredients to cereal and soybean meal on growth performance, carcass characteristics and meat quality traits of feedlot lambs were studied. A total of 105 non-castrated male lambs were randomly assigned to one of three treatments (5 replicates per treatment): Control (CON, similar to commercial concentrates), Camelina (CAM, where camelina meal replaced 50% of the crude protein from the soybean meal in the CON concentrate), and Fibrous (FIB, concentrate without cereals and soybean meal, with camelina meal in addition to several by-products, and...

Summary: Matthäus and Zubr (2000) have suggested that enzymatic hydrolysis of the glucosinolates in camelina seed may produce only nonvolatile isothiocyanates because of long carbon chains in its residue. In addition to this, camelina does not contain progoitrin, which can be converted into toxic goitrin. Therefore, the adverse effect of glucosinolates in CC may be less than that in rapeseed ...

Summary: The replacement of sunflower meal by camelina meal didn’t have a significant effect on milk yield or on mil components (protein, fat and lactose). On the other hand, due to its content in residual oil, and although was not protected against ruminal biohydrogenation, camelina meal improved the milk FA profile, by increasing PUFA n-3 and n-6. Of these noticeable ...

Summary: Two trials were conducted to determine the effect of dietary inclusion of camelina products on digestible nutrient compositions in rainbow trout. The experimental diets consisted of a basal diet and test ingredient with a ratio of 70:30, except for camelina oil where the ratio was 80:20. The study concluded that camelina by-products have the potential to replace fishery by-products ...

Summary: Few studies have focused on the use of camelina by-products in ruminants. The aim of this study was to analyze and compare chemical composition, dry matter (DMD) and organic matter digestibility (OMD). Five protein sources and two fiber sources were analyzed. Camelina meal showed a greater CP and NDF and lower EE values than camelina expeller (CE). Camelina meal ...

Summary: A study was conducted to investigate the effect of feeding Camelina sativa meal to broiler birds on bird performance, carcass characteristics, white and dark meat, and tissue (liver and adipose) total lipids and fatty acid composition. It was concluded that Camelina meal can be included in broiler diets up to 10% without compromising bird performance while increasing the n-3 ...
