Equilibration and passage of water in the gastrointestinal tract of cattle in relation to estimating body water by compartmental kinetic models



Equilibration and passage of water in the gastrointestinal tract of cattle in relation to estimating body water by compartmental kinetic models



Journal of Animal Science 63(5): 1400-1409



Volume of water in the rumen of 4 steers was increased (P <0.01) 47% when the amount of ground maize cobs in the diet was changed from 10 to 30%. The difference in gut water content due to diet was not accurately estimated by deuterium oxide dilution using either one-, two- or three-compartmental models. Gut water was overestimated and empty body water underestimated when calculated by two-compartment models.
