Short communication: Performance, intestinal permeability, and metabolic profile of calves fed a milk replacer supplemented with glutamic acid
(Journal of Dairy Science, 2019-11-13) Producció de Remugants
The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential benefits of supplementing glutamic acid in milk replacers (MR) with respect to calf performance, intestinal permeability, and metabolism. Sixty ...
Evaluating the potential role of tryptophan in calf milk replacers to facilitate weaning
(Journal of Dairy Science, 2020-05-29) Producció de Remugants
Tryptophan is a precursor of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that participates in the control of the affective state of an animal. We hypothesized that Trp supplementation could help dairy calves to cope ...
Neurobiology of environmental enrichment in pigs: hanges in monoaminergic neurotransmitters in several brain areas and in the hippocampal proteome
(Journal of Proteomics, 2020-08-16) Benestar Animal
Environmental enrichment in porcine farms improves animal welfare and leads to better public acceptance. To better understand the neurological mechanisms of the response to environmental enrichment, ...
Using compositional mixed-effects models to evaluate responses to amino acid supplementation in milk replacers for calves
(Journal of Dairy Science, 2021-04-15) Producció de Remugants
The consequences of supplementing Lys, Met, and Thr in milk replacers (MR) for calves have been widely studied, but scarce information exists about potential roles of other AA (whether essential or not). ...
