Ten multicatherized steers were used in a completely random design to determine the effect of previous BW gain on blood flow, acid-base balance, and oxygen consumption across portal-drained viscera and liver of growing beef steers fed a high-grain diet. Treatments were high (1.31 +/- 0.09 kg/d) or low (0.68 +/- 0.07 kg/d) daily BW gain during an 82-d winter wheat pasture grazing period and a subsequent 37-d transition period. Blood flow, blood gas measurements, and oxygen consumption were… CONTINUE READING
