The aim of this study is to evaluate the supplementation with calcium salt of palm oil (CSPO) in dairy cows grazing on tropical pastures. Eight rumen-cannulated cows (15 LD) will be used in a repplicated Latin square design, wherein will be measured ruminal parameters: pH, amoniacal N and short chain fatty acids. Data will be analyzed by SAS 9.4 (PROC MIXED). Significances levels will set at Pd 0.05. (AU)
