Major functions of portal-drained viscera (PDV) and liver of cattle include absorption of digestion products and modification of the body's supply of intermediary metabolites. The disproportionately high metabolic rate of PDV and liver (7-13% of body tissues) is exemplified by their oxygen uptake (40-50% of whole body). Extensive metabolism of glucose, volatile fatty acids and amino acids by PDV modulates nutrient supply from the diet such that most responses to diet or physiological state are… CONTINUE READING
