38 rumen epithelium RNA samples were analyzed in total. Purebred Holstein Friesian bulls were assigned to one of two feeding treatments (i) restricted feed allowance for 125 days (n=9) followed by ad libitum access to feed for a further 55 days (n=10) or (ii) a control group with ad libitum access to feed through out the 180 days trial (n=19). The first 125 days of the trial were denoted as Period 1, during which treatment groups were fed differentially. The subsequent 55 days, denoted as Period 2 during which all bulls were fed ad libitum. All bulls received the same diet of 70% concentrate 30% grass silage through out the experimental trial, with the amount of feed provided different dependent on each treatment group. Restricted fed animals were fed to grow at 0.6 kg /day during Period 1, with ad libitum animals expected to gain in excess of 1.5 to 2 kg/day.
