Selenium supplementation of grazing sheep. II. Responses in plasma and erythrocyte activities of lambs and adult wethers. III. Effects of supplementation of ewes before and/or after lambing on the selenium status, blood enzyme activities and the growth of their lambs



Selenium supplementation of grazing sheep. II. Responses in plasma and erythrocyte activities of lambs and adult wethers. III. Effects of supplementation of ewes before and/or after lambing on the selenium status, blood enzyme activities and the growth of their lambs



Australian Journal of Agricultural Research 31(5): 1005-1027



The possibility that apparently healthy lambs in the low selenium region of New England in New South Wales may suffer from subclinical nutritional muscular dystrophy (NMD) was investigated. Se treatment caused a large, rapid but transient increase in the initially low plasma glutathione peroxidase (GSH-px) activities of the lambs. With the exception of one animal, similar changes did not occur in adult wethers drenched with Se.
