The objective of this study was to evaluate whether different severities of short-term feed restriction (FR) affect the absorptive function of the reticulo-rumen and total tract barrier function in beef cattle. Eighteen ruminally cannulated and ovariectomized Angus × Hereford heifers were blocked by BW into 3 blocks, with blocks conducted sequentially… CONTINUE READING
