Estimating the energy expenditure of farm animals at pasture is important for efficient animal management. In recent years, an alternative technique for estimating energy expenditure by measuring body acceleration has been widely performed in wildlife and human studies, but the availability of the technique in farm animals has not yet been examined. In the(More)
Four young (23 kg body weight) and two mature wethers (52 and 92 kg body weight) were subcutaneously injected with hexestrol (HX) or HX dicaprylate (HX-D) and killed 41 d later. The HX residues, comprising free, glucuronide and KOH hydrolyzable forms plus metabolites were determined by gas chromatography after liquid-liquid extraction and silica gel(More)
A gas-liquid chromatographic (GLC) method with electron capture detection was developed for determining hexestrol residues based on a GLC method for diethylstilbestrol residues. The extraction and purification procedures were based on a published procedure. Pentafluoropropionic (PFP) and heptafluorobutyric (HFB) anhydrides and other halogenated compounds(More)
A gas-liquid chromatographic (GLC) method is described for determining hexestrol residues in adipose tissue. The extraction and purification procedures were based on a published method for determining diethylstilbestrol. To increase precision and sensitivity, the sample was further cleaned up by silica gel column chromatography. The heptafluorobutyric (HFB)(More)
