Relationship among GeneSTAR marbling marker, intramuscular fat deposition, and expected progeny differences in early weaned Simmental steers.
Research has demonstrated that triiodothyronine and thyroxin are correlated with marbling (MARB) deposition in Wagyu cattle. Polymorphisms in the 5' region of the thyroglobulin gene have beenExpand

Effects of Vitamin A and Restricted Intake on Performance, Carcass Characteristics, and Serum Retinol Status in Angus × Simmental Feedlot Cattle
Three feedlot experiments examined the effects of vitamin A (VA) on marbling and serum retinol (ROL) in Angus × Simmental cattle. Diets contained 2300 [low VA (LVA)] or 7250 IU VA/ kg [high VAExpand

Effects of monensin supplementation on ruminal metabolism of feedlot cattle fed diets containing dried distillers grains.
Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of monensin and dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS) on ruminal metabolism in 8 fistulated steers. In Exp. 1, treatments were (DMExpand
