Intravenous infusion of volatile fatty acids as a metabolic loading test to examine the effect of butafosfan (a phosphorus source) on the energy metabolism of cattle


, : Intravenous infusion of volatile fatty acids as a metabolic loading test to examine the effect of butafosfan (a phosphorus source) on the energy metabolism of cattle. Berliner und Munchener Tierarztliche Wochenschrift 105(11): 361-366

Ten Black Pied heifers were infused with sodium propionate at 0.45 mmol/kg/min or sodium butyrate at 0.22 mmol/kg/min for 20 min, 18 h after the last feed. Blood samples were taken on 19 occasions before and after infusion for measurement of glucose, free and volatile fatty acids, beta-hydroxybutyrate, insulin and cortisol. Some heifers were injected with the organophosphorus nutritional preparation butafosfan 60 h before the fatty acid infusion.
