A.S. Series 77-
The primary objective of these experiments was to study the effectiveness of different methods of supplementing vitamin A to vitamin A-depleted lambs as measured by growth, blood plasma levels and liver stores of vitamin A. The second objective was to determine effect of oral and injection methods of carotene administration on subsequent vitamin levels in blood plasma, liver, heart and kidney tissue. Responses were monitored over a period of about 4 weeks.
