A pathologic and toxicologic evaluation of veal calves fed large amounts of zinc



A pathologic and toxicologic evaluation of veal calves fed large amounts of zinc



Veterinary Pathology 25(6): 484-491



26 male Holstein veal calves had been fed 706 micro g zinc/g of milk replacer for 28 days before the first death occurred. Calves died naturally (14, group A) or were killed (12, group B) after 23 days of feeding a lower concentration of zinc (150 micro g/g). Average amounts of zinc in liver (wet weight) were 345.72 micro g/g (group A) and 344.84 micro g/g (group B). Mean kidney zinc concentrations were 219.0 micro g/g (group A) and 252.38 micro g/g (group B).
