4 IU/kg DM, 1 mg all-rac-[alpha]-tocopheryl acetate = 1 International Unit), were supplemented to the basal ration (VE content 38 IU/kg DM) in a 4 x 4 Latin square design as experimental treatments I, II, III, and IV, respectively.
In the present trial, the VE supply from the basal ration for the cattle was 142 IU/head/d (38 IU/kg DM x 3.
The reason could be that the VE content of the basal ration met the VE requirement of the cows or the supplementation level of 145 mg VE/head/d was not high enough to influence the nutrient digestibility and the performance of the cows.
