The objective of this study was to determine whether dietary glucose or starch would reduce the inhibitory effect of high K intake on Mg absorption in ruminants. In a 6 x 6 Latin square design, six goats were fed diets with or without added KHCO3 containing either cellulose, glucose, or native corn starch. The K concentrations of the diets were 7.8 or 34.0 g or K/kg of dry matter, and carbohydrates were incorporated so that their concentrations were identical on a glucose equivalent basis (331… CONTINUE READING
