Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Six Hereford steers were studied before, during, and after short exercise bouts on a motor-driven treadmill (3 degrees incline) at four speeds (1.0, 1.4, 1.8, and 2.2 m X s-1). Oxygen consumption (MO2) and carbon dioxide production (MCO2) were measured by collecting the expired gas. Arterial and mixed venous blood samples were obtained simultaneously from indwelling catheters in the aorta and pulmonary artery. A 10-fold increase was observed in MO2 and MCO2 at the highest work load. Minute ventilation increased proportionately less than MO2 and MCO2 with increasing work loads, but alveolar ventilation was found to increase in proportion to both MO2 and MCO2. The highest work load produced a threefold increase in cardiac output primarily as a result of increased heart rate. A 10-fold increase in lactate and a 63% increase in serum potassium concentration were observed at the highest work load. Plasma cortisol levels were highest at 10 min postexercise and reached levels of seven times the resting values following exercise at the highest speed. The responses to exercise in the calf are qualitatively similar to those observed in other species, but quantitative differences exist in some cardiovascular and metabolic responses which may limit this animal's ability to perform strenuous exercise.
