A note on the effect of ageing on whole-body protein turn-over in goats



A note on the effect of ageing on whole-body protein turn-over in goats



Animal Production 46(3): 479-481



Protein turn-over rates in the whole body of 4 female Japanese Saanen goats were estimated at 3, 9 and 18 months old using labelled DL-ethionine with 94.6 atom % excess. Whole-body protein turnover rates decreased significantly during growth between 3 to 18 months old; changes in feed sources during this period may have been partly responsible for the decrease.
