Subacute butyric acid loading in cattle. II. Effect on acid- base balance and protein metabolism in young beef bulls

Following twice-daily infusion of butyric acid into the rumen of 12 young cattle for 3 weeks, there were fluctuations in rumen pH and the acidity of urine increased. Plasma alkaline phosphatase activity was reduced.

Clinical effects and effect on carbohydrate and fat metabolism, liver function and acid-base balance in adult beef bulls. Butyric acid solution (5%) was infused through a catheter into the rumen of 7 Black Pied bulls aged 11 months (weighing 360 kg), between 0700 and 0900 hours and 1330-1530 hours daily at 1 g/kg body weight for 3 weeks. It led to a slight reduction...

Three weeks of butyric acid applications (0.5 g/kg and 1.0 g/kg body weight) caused strong dose-dependent strains on the acid-base balance in young fattening bulls aged 4 months. Disorders were primarily reflected in changed net values of acid-bas...

A daily dose of 1.0 g/kg body weight (b.w.) of butyric acid was intraruminally applied to 7 fattening bulls (360 kg in b.w. for 3 weeks. This caused slight clinical disorders, primarily in the form of reduced b.w. gain, but more strongly pronounce...

Daily butyric acid doses of 0.5 g/kg body weight or 1.0 g/kg were intraruminally applied to 8 young fattening bulls together with regular feed rations, for 19 days, following an initial phase for adaptation. Indigestion phenomena were recordable f...

For 3 weeks, 4 normal cows received twice daily intraruminal instillations of 1.0 g/kg body wt of either butyric acid or sodium butyrate. Then the doses were increased each day by 0. 2 g up to 2.0 g/kg. The main result of these increases was an in...
