Table 3 The effect of Sodium butyrate on milk yields and milk composition of goats fed HG diet versus those fed HG alone and LG diet

From: Sodium butyrate improves antioxidant stability in sub-acute ruminal acidosis in dairy goats

  1. The milk yield and milk compositions were analyzed by the mixed model of SAS with repeated measures, p ≤ 0.05 was considered significant
  2. a, b and c. The means with different superscript were considered significantly different
  3. dLG low gain, HG high grain, HG + NaB high grain + sodium butyrate
