I . The effect of hexoestrol on calcium metabolism of wether lambs has been studied 5 weeks after implantation of the oestrogen by the use o f 4 T a combined with a balance technique. 2. Treatment resulted in significant increases in gain in body-weight, efficiency of food utilization and retention of Ca. 3. The increased retention of Ca resulted from an increase in the efficiency of absorption of dietary Ca and from a decrease in thc rate of excretion of Ca into urine and faeces (faecal… Expand
The effect of growth hormone on calcium metabolism in the sheep.
TLDR
Results are consistent with the theory that oestrogens may alter Ca metabolism of wethers by increasing growth hormone production and suggest that the effect of growth hormone was to alter the Ca metabolism to resemble that of younger, more actively growing animals. Expand
The effect of 1-alpha-hydroxycholecalciferol on calcium and phosphorus metabolism in the lactating ewe.
TLDR
The results provide a possible explanation of the beneficial effect of 1 alpha-OH-D3 in preventing parturient paresis (milk fever) in the dairy cow. Expand
Studies on the absorption and retention of calcium and phosphorus by young and mature Ca-deficient sheep.
TLDR
Results suggested that when bone resorption ceased, Ca absorption was regulated by homoeostatic mechanisms at a level just sufficient to maintain maximum retention, and that the maximum rates of absorption measured may not have been true maximum rates. Expand
Endogenous faecal loss of calcium by ruminants
A re-examination of the results from 374 sheep used in previovis studies of calcium metabolism show there is a highly significant linear relationship between endogenous faecal loss of Oa and foodExpand
The effects of dietary calcium and of oestrogen on the metabolism of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol in vitamin D-replete chicks
TLDR
The effect of dietary calcium on the metabolism of 25-HCC in chicks given adequate amounts of vitamin D3 and calcium absorption was studied in order to elucidate the possible mechanism of oestrogen action in the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Expand
THE EFFECTS OF CALCIUM CARBONATE ON THE APPARENT DIGESTIBILITY, SERUM CONCENTRATION AND APPARENT RETENTION OF DIETARY MINERALS IN DAIRY CATTLE
CaCO3 was added to a hay-grain ration already adequate in nutrients to determine the effect of doubling the Ca content of the ration on apparent digestibilities and serum levels of 11 minerals.Expand
Factors Affecting the Hypocalcaemic Response to Protamine
TLDR
The hypocalcaemic response to protamine, as a measure of bone resorption rate, was studied in cattle and sheep, and a pronounced hyperphosphataemia was found in the adult pregnant ewes and rams. Expand
Elevated plasma cortisol during induced and spontaneous hypocalcemia in ruminants.
TLDR
In experiments with goats, the observation that cortisol-treated goats responded less severely with calcium depression and recovered faster from induced hypocalcemia by ethylene glycol-bis (beta-amino-ethyl ester) N,N'-tetraacetic acid infusions suggests cortisol may aid the animal in recovering from hypocalCEmia. Expand
Effect of prepartal hormone administration on feed intake and mineral metabolism of cows.
TLDR
Plasma calcium was not significantly different between treatment groups during either the prepartum or postpartal periods but tended to be higher postpartum in cows treated with estrogen, and absorption of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium was higher than in control cows. Expand
The effect of diethylstilbestrol on the rate of osseous repair, bone integrity, and plasma calcium in the adult avian
TLDR
Although the two dose levels utilized in this study both resulted in elevated plasma calcium and lipid levels and significantly increased the mineral and organic fractions of femoral bone, diethylstillbestrol treatment over a six-week period had no effect on the rate or magnitude of mineralization in the repairing osseous defect.

Calcium metabolism in lactating ewes.
TLDR
In the later stages, a combination of factors, but in particular a low rate of resorption of bone, enabled the animals to replenish some of the Ca lost from the skeleton in early lactation, as shown by the excess of bone accretion over bone Resorption. Expand
The effect of age and level of dietary calcium intake on calcium metabolism in sheep.
TLDR
Results indicate that bone resorption is the main pathway governing Ca homoeostasis and neither the rapidly exchangeable Ca pool nor the slowly exchangeable bone pool was altered by changes in dietary intake in young or mature animals. Expand
Calcium metabolism in pregnant ewes.
TLDR
Although the rate of absorption of Ca from the intestine increased steadily throughout pregnancy it was insufficient to meet the full requirements of late pregnancy and early lactation and the connexion between this observation and the pathogenesis of milk fever is discussed. Expand
