Table 1 Ingredient and nutrient compositions of the diet administered during the experimental period

From: Variation of inflammatory dynamics and mediators in primiparous cows after intramammary challenge with Escherichia coli

Ingredient (Kg/d)  
Grass silage 18.50
Barley 1.00
Beet pulp 2.00
Commercial concentrate 1 8.00
Nutrient composition (%DM basis)  
DM (Kg/d) 17.18
NEL2 (Mcal/kg) 1.55
CP 15.03
NDF 48.52
NFC3 25.66
  1. 1 Contained 18% CP, 3% fat, 13% cellulose, 8000 UI/kg Vitamin A, 1200 UI/kg Vitamin D3, 15 mg/kg Vitamin E, 9.6 mg/kg CU2SO4.
  2. 2 Calculated according to NRC (2001). NEL was estimated based on a cows weighing 650 kg and average 21.8 kg dry matter intake per day.
  3. 3NFC calculated as 100 - [(NDF - NDFCP) + CP + ether extract + ash] (NRC, 2001).
