Interactions in sheep between tall fescue ergot alkaloids and hepatotoxic carbon tetrachloride and Senecio pyrrolizidine alkaloids

Interactions in sheep between tall fescue ergot alkaloids and hepatotoxic carbon tetrachloride and Senecio pyrrolizidine alkaloids

Veterinary and Human Toxicology 41(3): 129-133

24 wether lambs weighing 34.1+or-2.3 kg were used after being randomly assigned to 1 of 6 treatments of 4 wethers each. The diets offered were a control basal diet containing endophyte-free (E-) tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) seed, control+carbon tetrachloride (CCL4), endophyte-infected (E+) tall fescue basal diet, E++CCl4, E-+tansy ragwort (TR; Senecio jacobaea), or E++TR.
