Abstract

The response of the immune and stress systems have been assessed in response to a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenge, yet the role of metabolism in mediating energy requirements during the acute phase response has not been sufficiently studied. This study tested heat-tolerant (Romosinuano [RO]) and ...

Abstract

The difference in the acute phase response of a heat-tolerant and a heat-sensitive Bos taurus breed to a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenge when housed at different air temperatures (Ta) was studied. Angus (ANG; heat-sensitive; n=11; 306±26 kg BW) and Romosinuano (RO; heat-tolerant; n=10; 313±32 kg ...

Abstract

Although livestock experience many stressors throughout their life, one of the most commonly experienced, and most difficult to control, is stress caused by fluctuations in environmental temperatures that extend beyond the thermoneutral (TN) zone for an animal. In swine, cold stress has long been...

Abstract

Our primary objective of this experiment was to evaluate potential genetic differences between two diverse Bos taurus breeds [Angus (AG) and Romosinuano (RO)] in response to an endotoxin challenge. Eighteen steers (n=9 steers/breed; 299.4±5.2 kg BW) were acclimated to environmentally controlled...

Abstract

A study was performed to evaluate differences in thermoregulatory ability of 2 Bos taurus breeds with known differences in heat tolerance. Nine Angus (AG; 304±7 kg of BW) and 9 Romosinuano (RO; 285±7.5 kg of BW) steers were transported to the Brody Environmental Center at the University of...

AbstractFull Text

Two Bos taurus breeds with known differences in heat tolerance were tested under controlled conditions to evaluate heat tolerance. Romosinuano (Romo) is a tropically adapted breed. Nine Angus (304±7 Kg BW) and nine RO (285±7.5 Kg BW) steers from USDA-ARS, Brooksville, Florida, were transported to...

Abstract

Our objective was to characterize further the acute-phase response following endotoxin (i.e. lipopolysaccharide; LPS) exposure in the bovine. Nine pure-bred Angus castrated males (i.e. steers; average body weight=299±5 kg) were used in a randomized complete block design in environmentally...
