There were also no differences in plasma [beta]-HBA and insulin concentrations in cattle fed LLRT, CLRT and MLRT supplemental diets.
The digestibilities of DM and OM were highest in cattle fed the CLRT supplemental diet.
NDF digestibility was also lower in cattle supplemented with LLRT than in animals fed CLRT and MLRT supplements, though the quantity of N intake in the rumen was not different.
Similarly, NDF digestibility was observed in animals fed with CLRT and MLRT supplements, but the intake of condensed tannins in animals fed CLRT and LLRT was not different.
N balance was greater in cattle fed LLRT, CLRT and MLRT supplemental diets than those fed RTPP.
In the present study, cattle fed LLRT and CLRT supplemental diets containing condensed tannins at about 6.
