Innate immunity and carbohydrate metabolism alterations precede occurrence of subclinical mastitis in transition dairy cowsDownload
Background This study examined whether activation of innate immunity and alterations of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism precede development of subclinical mastitis (SCM). Methods Blood samples were collected from the coccygeal vein from 100 Holstein dairy cows at -8, -4, disease diagnosis week,...
Occurrence of retained placenta is preceded by an inflammatory state and alterations of energy metabolism in transition dairy cowsDownload
Background Failure to expel fetal membranes within 24 h of calving is a pathological condition defined as retained placenta (RP). The objective of this investigation was to evaluate whether there are alterations in several selected serum variables related to innate immunity and carbohydrate and...
