Conjugated linoleic acid in combination with supplemental dietary fat alters pork fat quality.
Interest in fortification of human foods, including pork, with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is growing and may provide benefits as a neutraceutical based on research evaluating CLA as anExpand

Metabolic responses to the deficiency of Lys, Arg, Met, or His in the mammary gland of lactating goats
Abstract To investigate lactational responses to the deficiency of individual essential amino acid (EAA), two successive 3 × 3 Latin square experiments were conducted in the present study with 3Expand

Early postnatal kinetics of colostral immunoglobulin G absorption in fed and fasted piglets and developmental expression of the intestinal immunoglobulin G receptor.
The transport of IgG across the epithelial barrier and into the circulation is achieved in part by the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn), and this provides passive immunity to the neonate. The objective ofExpand

Utilization of medium-chain triglycerides by neonatal pigs: effects of emulsification and dose delivered.
Four trials were conducted using 86, 24-h-old pigs to evaluate the utilization of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). Effects of emulsification and amount of MCT fed were examined. After a 4-h periodExpand

Response of hepatic mitochondrial and peroxisomal beta-oxidation to increasing palmitate concentrations in piglets.
Responses of total, mitochondrial, and peroxisomal beta-oxidation to increasing [1-14C]-palmitate concentrations (0.02-1.0 mM) were measured in liver homogenates from neonatal pigs. Incubations wereExpand

Emulsification and fatty-acid chain length affect the utilization of medium-chain triglycerides by neonatal pigs.
Three experiments were conducted using 52 pigs between 22 and 35 h of birth to determine the effects of emulsification and fatty-acid chain length on utilization of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT).Expand

Lactation performance and mammary amino acid metabolism in lactating dairy goats when complete or met lacking amino acid mixtures were infused into the jugular vein
Abstract To investigate the compensatory responses of mammary gland tissues to deficiency amino acid (AA) supply, two AA mixtures were infused into the jugular vein of lactating dairy goats. CompleteExpand

Diet physical form, fatty acid chain length, and emulsification alter fat utilization and growth of newly weaned pigs.
An experiment was conducted to examine the interplay of diet physical form (liquid vs. dry), fatty acid chain length [medium- (MCT) vs. long-chain triglyceride (LCT)], and emulsification asExpand

Evaluation of the nutritional value of glycerol for nursery pigs.
In Exp. 1, a total of 144 pigs (BW, 6.68 ± 0.17 kg) were weaned at 21 d, blocked by BW, and allocated to 48 pens with 3 pigs per pen. Pens were randomly assigned to 1 of 6 dietary treatments (0, 2.5,Expand
