Abstract

Cobalt (Co) is utilized by rumen microflora to produce vitamin B12. The aim of the present study was to determine whether feeding newly-weaned goats a diet containing low levels of Co results in impairment of neutrophil function, antibody production and/or lymphocyte proliferative responses. Forty, ten week old goats were fed a commercially-prepared concentrate (150 g/day) and Rhodesgrass hay ad libitum. This diet contained Co at
