Four beef steers (average BW, 246 kg) were used in a split-plot design with five bovine insulin (I) infusion rates (5, 10, 20, 40, and 80 mU.kg-1.h-1) in the main plot and two infusion sites, mesenteric (M) and jugular (J) veins, in the subplot. Steers were fed a medium-energy diet at .235 Mcal of ME/kg BW.75 daily in 12 equal feedings at 2-h intervals. Catheters were placed in the mesenteric, hepatic-portal, and hepatic veins and in the abdominal aorta. Blood was sampled from the arterial… CONTINUE READING
