Abstract

Differences in placental mass and vascularity exist between cows gestating single vs. multiple fetuses. Therefore, the association between fetal number and placental development or function was assessed by comparing concentrations of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), pregnancy-associated...

Abstract

The effects of body condition score (BCS) change and status ante- and postpartum (pp) on health and reproductive performance in 234 German Holstein cows from eight dairy farms were evaluated. BCS was determined from 6 weeks antepartum until 20 weeks pp in 2-week intervals. Three and 5 weeks pp...

Abstract

Hormonal signals differentially regulate the timing of parturition, as well lactogenesis and, potentially, colostrum formation in the mammary gland. Non-neuronal serotonin (5-HT) is a homeostatic regulator of the mammary gland. In the current study, we manipulated the timing of first milking to...

This study sought to assess the effects of an inactivated phase I vaccine against Coxiella burnetii at the start of the third trimester of gestation on serological profiles, bacterial shedding patterns and subsequent reproductive performance in dairy cows. Cows were randomly assigned to a control...

Abstract

Retained placenta (RP) occurs frequently in dairy cattle but little is known about the pathogenic or prognostic role of the hematological changes in this disease. This retrospective study was designed to investigate the hematological changes associated with RP in the immediate post-partum period...

Abstract

The current study was conducted to test breed difference in the frequency of leukochimerism. This study used leukochimerism as evidence of placental vascular anastomosis formation and compared its frequency in the Holstein and Jersey breeds. We test the null hypothesis that there is no difference...

Abstract

Dairy cows suffer blood Ca losses as lactation begins and might be affected by hypocalcemia in its clinical (total serum Ca concentration <1.50 mM) or subclinical form (total serum Ca concentration ≤2.14 mM). Several studies have suggested that hypocalcemia is associated with different health problems of...

Abstract

Intense lipolysis triggers an inflammatory response within adipose tissue characterized by adipose tissue macrophage (ATM) infiltration; however, the mechanisms triggering this process are poorly characterized in transition dairy cows. The aim of this study was to determine the association between...
