Abstract

The predictive values of plasma non-esterified fatty acid (NEFA), beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), cholesterol, albumin and calcium to predict risk of peripartum diseases in primiparous (PP) and multiparous (MP) Holstein cows was investigated. Besides it was assessed if the health status interacted with ...

Abstract

The objective was to evaluate the associations of pre- and postpartum lying time (LT) with serum total calcium (Ca), nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA), β-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), and haptoglobin concentrations, hemogram, and health status of dairy cows. A total of 1,052 Holstein cattle (401...

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...

Abstract

In this review, methods for assessing energy reserves, the role of assigning BCS in dairy management, and the impact of varying BCS on animal productivity, health, and reproduction are explored from a whole-system viewpoint. The usefulness, validity, and precision of BCS for assessing body energy...

AbstractFull Text

The reproductive performance and heath parameters of dairy herds have a significant effect on the farm economy. Body condition score (BCS) and locomotion score (LMS) have been used as performance indicators to assess the performance of dairy animals. Objective of the current study was to evaluate...
