Effects of supplemental dietary calcium and vitamin D on lipid distribution and aortic mineralization were examined in young goats. Twenty-four goats, 2-4 wk of age, were allotted one of four dietary treatments for a 20-wk period and fed a basal milk diet (Basal), a calcium-supplemented diet (Basal + Ca), a cholecalciferol-enriched diet (Basal + D3) or a(More)
To examine the effects of amount of calcium and type of fat in the diet on distribution of cholesterol in plasma, several tissues and feces, 4-week-old goats (6 females and 18 males) were fed isocaloric diets consisting of goat milk supplemented with cholesterol and 1) soybean oil, 2) tallow, 3) soybean oil and CaCO3 or 4) tallow and CaCO3 for 20 weeks.(More)
Sixteen male Holstein calves consumed by nipple a reconstituted milk containing nonfat dry milk and either soybean oil or tallow for 24 weeks. Calves fed milk in this manner (with no dry feed) are functionally nonruminants because the milk bypasses the ruminoreticulum. The fat in these diets contributed about 30% of total dietary calories. The calves(More)
Twenty-four male goats, approximately 2 to 4 wk of age, were allotted to four dietary treatments in a 2 X 2 factorial design and were fed a basal milk diet at 12.5% body weight for 20 wk. Vitamin D3 was added to the milk in two different amounts with and without supplemental CaCO3. At the end of wk 7, corn was added to all diets at 1% body weight. Over 20(More)
1. Young goats were used to study factors contributing to atherosclerosis. 2. Cholesterol in egg yolk affected plasma cholesterol concentration more than did a similar amount of crystalline cholesterol in the diet. 3. Goats fed high fat diets developed fatty lesions in their aortas. 4. Cholesterol concentration in low-density lipoprotein was greatest in(More)
