Absorption of magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, chloride and phosphate from the isolated reticulo-rumen and the effect of increasing the intraruminal potassium concentrations on the absorption of these electrolytes in sheep



Absorption of magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, chloride and phosphate from the isolated reticulo-rumen and the effect of increasing the intraruminal potassium concentrations on the absorption of these electrolytes in sheep



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 72(8): 674-676



Blood samples were collected from four adult sheep to measure mineral absorption rates of magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, chloride and phosphate from the reticulo-rumen and to study the effect of increasing potassium content. The composition of solutions used for mineral absorption were based on mineral analysis of supernatant fractions of centrifuge rumen contents. Magnesium, calcium and chromium concentrations were determined by atomic absorption spectrophometry.
