A study was conducted to examine the effects of low dietary Mn on growth performance of pregnant heifers and fetal development of their offspring. Twenty pregnant Angus (n = 9) and Simmental (n = 11) heifers averaging 17 mo of age and 447.6 kg of initial body weight were used in the 267-d study. Heifers were selected from a previous study examining the effects of supplemental Mn on growth and reproductive performance of heifers. Ten pregnant heifers per treatment from the control (analyzed at… CONTINUE READING
