J Dairy Sci. 2004 Apr;87(4):1085-91. Related Articles, Links Effect of zinc source and dietary level on zinc metabolism in Holstein calves. Wrightt CL , Spears JW . Department of Animal Science and Interdepartmental Nutrition Program North Carolina State University, Raleigh 27695-7621, USA. Forty-eight Holstein male calves were stratified by origin and body weight and randomly assigned to one of 4 treatment groups. Dietary treatments were administered in 2 phases. In phase 1, treatment groups received the basal diet with no supplemental Zn (control), basal diet plus 20 mg of Zn/kg of DM as ZnSO4 or Zn proteinate (ZnProt), or basal diet plus 20 mg of Zn/kg of DM with 50% of the Zn supplied from each source (ZnM) for 98 d. In phase 2, calves continued to receive the same Zn source fed in phase 1; however, half of the calves in each treatment group were randomly selected to receive 500 mg of Zn/kg of DM (HiZnSO4, HiZnProt, HiZnM) for 14 d. Gain, feed intake, and feed efficiency of calves were not affected by treatment in either phase of the experiment. Treatment had no affect on plasma Zn concentration or alkaline phosphatase activity in phase 1, but liver Zn concentration was greater in calves fed ZnSO4 than those fed ZnProt. In phase 2, plasma Zn was greater in calves fed HiZnProt and HiZnM than in those fed HiZnSO4. Liver Zn was greater in calves fed HiZnProt than in those fed HiZnSO4. Duodenal Zn concentrations were greater in calves supplemented with HiZnProt and HiZnM than those supplemented with HiZnSO4. Liver metallothionein was greater in calves that received 500 mg of Zn/kg than in calves that received 20 mg of Zn/ kg, but was not affected by Zn source. Calves fed HiZnProt and HiZnM had greater kidney Zn concentrations than those fed HiZnSO4. Heart, spleen, testicular, and bone Zn concentrations were not affected by Zn source. Hoof wall samples contained nearly 3-fold greater Zn concentrations than hoof sole. Calves fed ZnSO4 had greater Zn concentration in hoof wall samples than those fed ZnM. Hoof sole Zn concentration was not affected by Zn source or concentration. Plasma and tissue Zn concentrations at harvest were generally similar in calves supplemented with 20 mg of Zn/kg from ZnSO4 or ZnProt. However, when supplemented at 500 mg of Zn/kg, ZnProt was absorbed to a greater extent than ZnSO4, based on higher plasma, liver, duodenal, and kidney Zn concentrations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
