Influence of the force feeding protocol on the development of fatty liver and the carcass: a biometric study


, : Influence of the force feeding protocol on the development of fatty liver and the carcass: a biometric study. Revue de Medecine Veterinaire 142(10): 743-747

From 14 weeks old and about 3.7 kg 180 Mulard ducks were force fed for 0, 6, 10, 14, 18, 24, 28, 32 and 34 days on steamed yellow maize at up to 775 g per feeding. Body weight after 34 force feedings was 10 times superior to that of initial body weight.

In a test with 9 Sindhi cows and 9 Murrah buffaloes it was found that hydrogenation of dietary oils lowers their nutritive quality for dairy cattle.

The maternal plasma concentrations of hormones conc...

Erythropoietin receptor (EPOR) is thought to be activated by ligand-induced homodimerization. However, structures of agonist and antagonist peptide complexes of EPOR, as well as an EPO-EPOR complex, have shown that the actual dimer configuration i...
