Rates of increase in plasma Mg following rectal or oral administration of solutions containing 30 g MgCl2.6H2O were compared in 10 Holstein bull calves receiving wheat straw (.07% Mg) and concentrates (.04 or .24% Mg) fed separately for ad libitum consumption. Treatments were administered in a sequence, which involved each calf with all combinations of MgCl2.6H2O dosing routes and dietary Mg within a 6-wk period. Plasma Mg concentration averaged 1.95 mg/dl initially but fell below 1 mg/dl… CONTINUE READING
