Abstract

The experiment was carried out to assess the effects of feeding apple pomace silage (APS) on blood parameters in Suffolk ewes. Three ewes were used in 3×3 Latin square design over three periods with three dietary treatments as hay diet, low ethanol APS (L-APS, ethanol 48.7 g kg-1 DM) diet and high ethanol APS (H-APS, ethanol 87.2 g kg-1 DM) diet. Alfalfa hay cube and APS provided half of 110% TDN requirement for APS diets. The area upper or under the curve (AUC) of plasma ethanol was greater (P<0.01) in APS diets than that of hay diet and H-APS diet had grater (P<0.01) AUC than that of L-APS. The AUC of plasma β-hydroxybutyrate in both APS diets were greater (P<0.01) than that of hay diet. Plasma ethanol AUC was positively correlated (P<0.05) with the AUCs of plasma lactate, triglyceride and glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT), and negatively correlated (P<0.05) with the AUC of plasma urea nitrogen. Plasma lactate AUC was positively correlated (P<0.05, P<0.01, and P<0.05, respectively) with the AUC of free cholesterol, triglyceride and GOT, and negatively correlated (P<0.01) with that of plasma urea nitrogen. The AUC of plasma β-hydroxybutyrate was negatively correlated (P<0.01) with that of glucose. Finally, blood parameters examination revealed that feeding of APS lead to increase plasma ethanol, lactate, β-hydroxybutyrate and lipid components and tended to decrease glucose levels.
