dc.description.abstractTwo questions were proposed in these studies. One, does lasalocid contribute to respiratory alkalosis and thus to bloat? Two, are there mechanisms of action other than the typical ruminal effects? Lambs, broilers chicks and steers were used in a series of studies to determine the effects of lasalocid, mineral ratio and heat stress on acid-base balance, nitrogen utilization, mineral balance, performance (average daily gain and feed efficiency), hematological variables and ruminal passage rates.
