The portal-arterial (P-A) concentration, the hepatic- portal (H-P) concentration and the hepatic-arterial (H-A) concentration differences of acetate, butyrate and isobutyrate were not significantly different (P greater than 0.05) between diets, while P-A, H-P and H-A concentrations of propionate, isovalerate and TVFA were higher (P less than 0.05) in goats fed LF diets than HF diets, except TVFA in H-P.
In addition HC diet enhanced NEFA portal-arterial and hepatic- arterial plasma concentrations differences and reduced BOHB hepatic-arterial concentration difference relative to HF diet.
