Effects of dietary iron supplementation on growth performance, hematological status, and whole-body mineral concentrations of nursery pigs.
Results suggest that Fe contributed by feed ingredients was not sufficient to maintain indices of Fe status and the lessening of a pig's Fe stores during this rapid growth period may result in the occurrence of anemia during the subsequent grower and finisher periods. Expand
Effect of Se on selenoprotein activity and thyroid hormone metabolism in beef and dairy cows and calves.
Calves born to cows drenched with Se had greater (P < 0.05) plasma Se concentration, RBC GPX-1, and plasma glutathione peroxidase activity on d 0 compared with calves born to control cows; this trend continued until parturition. Expand
Utilization of distillers dried grains with solubles and phytase in sow lactation diets to meet the phosphorus requirement of the sow and reduce fecal phosphorus concentration.
Results indicate that highly productive sows can sustain lactation performance with reduced fecal phytate P when fed DDGS and phytase in lactation diets. Expand
Effects of dietary zinc and iron supplementation on mineral excretion, body composition, and mineral status of nursery pigs.
It is suggested that dietary Zn or Fe additions increase mineral status of nursery pigs once tissue mineral stores are loaded, and dietary minerals in excess of the body's requirement are excreted. Expand
Effects of increasing dietary L-carnitine on growth performance of weanling pigs.
The results suggest that the addition of 50 to 100 ppm of added L-carnitine to the diet improved growth performance of weanling pigs. Expand
Effects of Yucca schidigera-derived saponin supplementation during a mixed Eimeria challenge in broilers.
It is suggested that saponin supplementation may provide some immunomodulatory effects during a mixed coccidian challenge as evidenced by lymphocyte responses, changes in intestinal structure, and alterations in cecal and duodenal inflammatory cytokine mRNA expression. Expand
Effect of Feeding Greater Amounts of Calcium Oxide Treated Corn Stover and Micro-Aid® on Performance and Nutrient Mass Balance
Feedlot performance and mass balance were evaluated on steers fed either 5% untreated corn stover (CON), 20% untreated corn stover (NONTRT), or 20% calcium oxide (CaO) treated corn stover (TRT) whenExpand
Effects of iron supplementation on binding activity of iron regulatory proteins and the subsequent effect on growth performance and indices of hematological and mineral status of young pigs.
Results indicate that IRP binding activity is influenced by Fe supplementation, and other indicators of Fe status are affected via the role of IRP in posttranscriptional expression of Fe storage and transport proteins. Expand
Effects of including saponins (Micro-Aid ® ) on intake, rumen fermentation and digestibility in steers fed low-quality prairie hay
®Saponins Beef cattle Low-quality hay Protein supplementation Digestibility a b s t r a c t Sixteen ruminally cannulated crossbred steers (529 ± 45 kg initial body weight, BW) were used to evaluateExpand
Effects of including saponins (Micro-Aid®) in a protein supplement on performance of growing steers and spring-calving cows
Data are interpreted to indicate that MA has no impact beyond PC on growing steer performance during late summer or spring-calving cow performance and total tract apparent hay digestibility, and Supplementing cows MA may be effective at improving suckling calf performance. Expand
