To describe the feeding behavior of growing heifers fed high-concentrate diets with different sources of protein and nonstructural carbohydrates, and to explain the ruminal fermentation pattern, 4 ruminally fistulated Holstein heifers (BW = 132.3 +/- 1.61 kg) were assigned to a 4 x 4 Latin square design with a 2 x 2 factorial arrangement of treatments. Two(More)
To investigate the effects of synchronizing nonstructural carbohydrate (NSC) and protein degradation on intake and rumen microbial fermentation, four ruminally fistulated Holstein heifers (BW = 132.3 +/- 1.61 kg) fed high-concentrate diets were assigned to a 4 x 4 Latin square design with a 2 x 2 factorial arrangement of treatments studied in vivo and in(More)
Six Holstein heifers (initial BW = 65.2 +/- 1.8 kg) fitted with ruminal cannulas were used in a repeated measures trial to assess the effect of age and forage-to-concentrate ratio on ruminal fermentation end products and in situ degradation kinetics of four plant protein supplements (soybean meal, sunflower meal, peas, and lupin seeds). Alfalfa hay also was(More)
BACKGROUND There are very limited data on cancer among U.S. Hispanics. The data that are available seldom appear outside individual registry reports. Without coalescing and assessing such information, the epidemiology of cancer among Hispanics cannot be understood. PURPOSE This article presents an overall view of the epidemiology of cancer among Hispanic(More)
Fatigue is a frequent symptom in multiple sclerosis, known since the first descriptions of the disease, and it has been the object of special interest in recent years due to the great influence it has on the quality of life of those suffering from the disease. The fatigue of multiple sclerosis has clinical characteristics that differentiate it from the(More)
BACKGROUND To analyze the interplay between diet, physical activity and health-related quality of life in a Spanish randomly selected sample of individuals attended in general practitioners offices with intermediate cardiovascular risk. METHODS This study analyzed 314 subjects, aged 35-74 years (50.6% women), from the MARK study, conducted in Spain.(More)
Four rumen fistulated Holstein calves (BW 132.3 ± 1.61 kg) fed high concentrate diets (10 to 90, forage to concentrate ratio) were assigned to a 4 x 4 Latin square design to investigate the effects of nonstructural carbohydrate (barley or corn) and protein (soybean meal or sunflower meal) sources on ruminal fermentation and animal performance.
