Melamine might be degraded into cyanuric acid and some other analogs by the rumen microorganism. Thus, the metabolism of melamine in ruminants may be different from that in monogastric animals. The objective of this study was to investigate the pathway for the elimination of melamine in lactating dairy cows. Four late-lactation dairy cows (body weight=524±17 kg, days in milk=265±14 d) fitted with ruminal cannulas were dosed with melamine (purity ≥99.5%) at 800 mg/d per cow that divided into 2… CONTINUE READING
