Nine non-pregnant, lactating dairy cows were used to study plasma and urinary magnesium concentrations ([Mg]pl; [Mg]u), and the urinary fractional excretion of magnesium (FE(Mg)) before, during and after an 120 min intravenous magnesium (Mg) administration (2.5 mg/kg body weight). Animals received a total mixed ration, and Mg content of the diet was within recommended range. Basal mean [Mg]pl, [Mg]u and FE(Mg) were 0.89 +/- 0.09 mm, 5.92 +/- 2.99 mm and 8.3 +/- 9.7% respectively. For all… CONTINUE READING
