Feeding calves with soybean hydrosoluble extract. II. Antibody production and effects upon intestinal villosity
Keywords:Feeding, Calves, Soybeans, Disorders.
AbstractThe aim of this investigation was to study the total replacement of milk substitute (SL) for soybean hydrosoluble extract (EHS) in feeding 5-day-old Holstein male calves. Calves fed with EHS from the 5th day of age showed,
throughout the experiment, weight loss, diarrhea, lethargy, cachexia and at the final stage, dehydration and hypoproteinemia. In addition, these calves had intestinal villosity atrophy and sera antibody production against the
EHS protein, indicating they were suffering from an allergic reaction, while the control group calves showed normal development. The calves fed with EHS showed visible decrease of subcutaneous fat, omentum, epiploon and perirenal fat. The main change observed in the abomasum was absence of clot formation.
