Extract

With the use of radioactive calcium (Ca) it is possible to study the kinetic aspects of Ca metabolism. Research in Brazil has been carried out to study mineral metabolism in sheep and cattle, especially phosphorus, by using isotope dilution techniques. However, there is very little information on Ca metabolism in sheep. The objective of this experiment was to study the effects of various Ca sources on the Ca metabolism in sheep by using isotope and balance techniques.
