Rumen-Protected Choline Affects Methionine Methyl Group Metabolism In Lactating Dairy Cows

Rumen-Protected Choline Affects Methionine Methyl Group Metabolism In Lactating Dairy CowsS.L.A Benoit, B.J. Bequette, and R.A. Erdman*; University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA.Background Methionine (Met) is a precursor for protein synthesis and the primary donor of labile methyl groups. It was hypothesized that milk production responses  to rumen-protected choline (RPC) relate to the choline sparing Met…
