Test for estimation of bovine hepatic lipid content.

The lipid content of bovine liver was found to be highly correlated with its specific gravity. This observation was used as the basis for a clinical test to estimate the liver lipid content in dairy cows. The test consisted of submerging needle biopsy specimens of liver into water and copper sulfate solutions with specific gravities of 1.025 and 1.055. On… CONTINUE READING
