Two rumen cannulated steers consuming 5.5 kg air-dry lucerne (Medicago sativa) hay/d given at two-hourly intervals were used to study the kinetics in the rumen of the two particulate markers, 103Ru-labelled Tris-(1, 10-phenanthroline) ruthenium II chloride ([103Ru]P) and dysprosium (Dy). Provision of markers was achieved by allowing the steers to eat separated stems of the hay on to which had been sprayed solutions of the markers. The intake of large-particle (retained by a 3.2 mm mesh screen… CONTINUE READING
