Eight steers from a group of 14 were fed ad libitum from 240 to 510 kg live weight, gaining at 1.4 +/- .2 kg/d. The six other steers were diet-restricted and grew at .37 +/- .09 kg/d from 240 to 307 kg, prior to ad libitum realimentation on the same diet to a final weight of 510 kg. Blood samples taken during the growth phases from both treatments were analyzed for insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), glucose (GLU), nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA), and… CONTINUE READING
