Lipid accretion and metabolism during accelerated gain and growth hormone administration were examined in a 29-d trial with 24 beef steers. Treatments in this 2 X 2 factorial design consisted of level of feeding (restricted or ad libitum) and exogenous hormone [pituitary-derived bovine growth hormone (GH) at 38 IU/d or excipient]. Live weight gain was not affected by hormone treatment. Protein content of the 9-10-11th rib section was greatest in steers receiving GH irrespective of feeding level… CONTINUE READING
