A study was conducted to determine the effects of supplementing a diet marginally deficient in copper (Cu) with iron (Fe), molybdenum (Mo), or Cu on phagocytic cell function and disease resistance of calves. Thirty-one calves were born to heifers fed a corn silage-based diet containing 4.5 mg of Cu/kg. Treatments consisted of 1) control (CON; no(More)
Two experiments were conducted to determine the effects of Cu deficiency with or without high dietary Mo or Fe on the specific immunity of calves. In Exp. 1, calves from 38 bred heifers, fed corn silage-based experimental diets from the last third of gestation until the calves were weaned, were used. Dietary treatments were control (no supplemental Fe, Mo,(More)
Twenty-four male Holstein calves were used to determine the effects of dietary Cu and Mo on performance, Cu status, and immune function of calves. Calves were fed a milk replacer that was deficient in Cu for 8 wk and then were randomly assigned after weaning to one of four treatments: 1) control (no supplemental Cu or Mo), 2) 10 mg of Cu (from CuSO4)/kg of(More)
A study was conducted to determine the effects of copper (Cu) depletion by feeding diets high in either iron (Fe) or molybdenum (Mo) on performance and Cu status of beef cows and calves. Thirty-eight 2-yr-old beef heifers, entering the last one-third of gestation, were randomly assigned by expected calving date to one of four diets: 1) control (CON; corn(More)
Thirty-eight pregnant Angus, Charolais, and Simmental heifers and their offspring were used to determine whether differences in Cu metabolism existed among breeds. The heifers were fed either 0 or 10 mg of supplemental Cu per kilogram of DM. Calves were born between d 70 and 125 of the 280 d experiment. There were few differences among breeds in plasma Cu(More)
