  1. a A 2 × 2 factorial arrangement with 2 supplemental levels of rumen-protected creatine pyruvate (RP-CrPyr)r in basal diets (0 or 140 g/d for each cattle) and 2 transport treatment (transport 0 or 12 h before slaughter)
  2. b Transport × RP-CrPyr, the interaction between Transport and RP-CrPyr
