Sites, rates, and limits of starch digestion and glucose metabolism in growing cattle.
Growing cattle in the United States consume up to 6 kg of starch daily, mainly from corn or sorghum grain. Total tract apparent digestibility of starch usually ranges from 90 to 100% of starchExpand

Carcass and beef color characteristics of three biological types of cattle grazing cool-season forages supplemented with soyhulls.
Soyhull supplementation to divergent biological types of cattle on forage-based systems was studied to determine the impact on carcass and color characteristics. Weaned calves (n=107) biologicallyExpand

Effect of level and type of fat on subacute acidosis in cattle fed dry-rolled corn finishing diets.
Five experiments were conducted to determine the effect of fat addition to dry-rolled corn (DRC) finishing diets on subacute acidosis. In Exp. 1, five ruminally fistulated steers (410 +/- 12 kg BW)Expand

Fatty acid and sensory characteristics of beef from three biological types of cattle grazing cool-season forages supplemented with soyhulls.
Over two consecutive years, the effects of allocating divergent biological types of cattle (n=107) to fescue pasture without supplementation, or fescue or orchardgrass pasture with soyhullExpand

Influence of soybean hull supplementation on rumen fermentation and digestibility in steers consuming freshly clipped, endophyte-infected tall fescue.
Six steers (288.6 +/- 2.1 kg of BW) fitted with rumen and duodenal cannulas were used in a crossover design to evaluate intake, rumen fermentation, and site of nutrient digestion of freshly clipped,Expand

Influence of abomasal infusion of glucose or partially hydrolyzed starch on pancreatic exocrine secretion in beef steers.
Five crossbred steers (348 +/- 12 kg) fitted with a pancreatic pouch draining the main pancreatic duct and duodenal re-entrant and abomasal infusion cannulas were used in a 5 x 5 Latin square designExpand

Net nutrient flux in visceral tissues of lambs fed diets differing in supplemental nitrogen source.
Eight multicatheterized wethers (35.9 +/- .8 kg BW) were used in a replicated 4 x 4 Latin square design to measure N retention and net uptake and release of plasma metabolites across theExpand
