Nine steers (300 to 350 kg body weight) were divided into three groups and received either no ionophore, monensin or lasalocid in a 70% cracked corn basal diet for the entire experiment. Within each group, a 3 X 3 Latin-square design was used to evaluate the effect of a high cation concentration added to the diets on in vivo methanogenesis. The three cation treatments consisted of NaCl or KCl addition (Na or K increased to 2.5% of diet dry matter) or no cation addition. Sodium addition… CONTINUE READING
