Effects of copper source and concentration on copper status and immune function in growing and finishing steers



Effects of copper source and concentration on copper status and immune function in growing and finishing steers



Animal Feed Science and Technology 110(1/4): 31-44



Forty-eight individually fed purebred Angus steers (7+or-1.1 mo of age, 218+or-9.1 kg BW) were used to determine the effects of copper (Cu) source and concentration on Cu status and immune function. Steers were stratified by weight and initial liver Cu concentration and randomly assigned to one of five treatments.
