Chumlea et al. created two equations to estimate weight in non-ambulatory patients using readily available body measurements. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study is to analyze the(More)
Seventy-four lactating dairy ewes were injected with recombinant bST (sometribove) in a sustained-release formulation. Ewes received 0, 80, 160, or 240 mg of bST every 14 d from wk 3 to 8 of lactation (part 1) and 0, 80, or 160 mg of bST every 14 d from wk 11 to 23 of lactation (part 2). Sometribove increased milk yield over that of the controls for all(More)
