The objective of this experiment was to investigate whether steers grazing endophyte-infected (E+, Neotyphodium coenophialum) fescue (Festuca arundinacea) have altered host response to lipopolysaccharide (endotoxin, LPS) challenge compared with steers grazing endophyte-free (E-) fescue. Angus steers (n=8) had continuously grazed either E+ (n=4) or E- (n=4) tall fescue grass for 8 months prior to the experiment.
