Environmental physiology and shelter engineering with special reference to domestic animals. 32: The influence of ambient temperature, air velocity, radiation intensity and starvation on thyroid activity and iodide metabolism in cattle
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The preceding progress reports in this series were concerned with the effects of temperature, humidity, air movement, and light intensity on feed and water consumption, milk production and composition, rectal and surface temperature, heat production and cardiorespiratory activities, evaporative cooling, and several aspects of blood and urine composition including protein-bound iodine content. This report is an extension of the work on the effect of temperature, wind, light intensity and nutritional status on several aspects of thyroid activity.
