Effects of diet forage-to-concentrate ratio and intake on balances of energy and nitrogen and portal-drained viscera (PDV), liver and kidney blood flow and O2 consumption were measured in seven growing beef heifers. Isonitrogenous pelleted diets containing approximately 75% alfalfa or 75% concentrate were fed daily as 12 equal meals every 2 h at two isoenergetic metabolizable energy intakes. A split-plot design was used, with 4 wk for adaptation to diet followed by 3-wk intake periods within 6… CONTINUE READING
