The hypothesis tested was that addition of starch to the ration of cows would stimulate magnesium (Mg) absorption because of a lowering of ruminal pH, which renders Mg more soluble and thus more available for transport across the epithelium of the rumen, which is the major site of Mg absorption in ruminants. The trial had a 5 3 5 Latin-square design in which five non-pregnant, non-lactating multiparous cows were fed rations containing either a mix of cellulose and maizeglutenfeed or native or… CONTINUE READING
