Treatments effects were tested using the following contrasts: 0 vs EHY, and linear and quadratic polynomials (Stastix 9, Analytical Software, Tallahassee, FL, USA).
8 cm internal diameter) and proximal duodenum (Zinn and Plascencia, 1993) were used in a 4 x 4 Latin square experiment to evaluate the influence of EHY (TruMax, Vi-COR, USA) supplementation-level in finishing diets for steers based on steam-flaked corn and distillers dried gains plus solubles on characteristics of rumen and total tract digestion.
The effects of EHY cell wall level (0, 1, 2, or 3 g EHY/hd/d) on characteristics of digestion in cattle were analyzed as a balanced 4*4 Latin square design experiment:
Treatment effects were tested using the following contrasts: 0 vs EHY, and linear and quadratic polynomials (Stastix 9, Analytical Software, USA).
However, from d-139 to harvest, when 24-h temperature humidity index averaged 80, EHY increased DMI (linear effect, p<0.
Observed variation in growth-performance response to EHY supplementation as affected by periods of unfavorable ambient conditions, may be more particularly a function of immune status (Swyers et al.
In the present study, enhancements in DMI and ADG during the period of high THI may indicate a potential role of EHY in association with heat stress.
08) with the increasing level of EHY, reflecting a stimulatory effect of EHY on cellulase activity (Kmet et al.
Comparable studies evaluating effects of supplemental EHY on characteristics of digestion are limited.
