A total of 24 primiparous and 46 multiparous Holstein cows were in two trials to determine the influence of concentration of dietary protein on performance during early lactation. Treatments were 13.5 or 16.5% dietary crude protein for the first 12 wk of lactation. Complete mixed diets of grass-legume forage and concentrates were fed for ad libitum(More)
A total of 117 Holstein cows were in two trials to determine how reduction in concentration of dietary protein influences early lactation. Treatments were feeding 17% crude protein for 3 mo or reducing dietary crude protein from 17 to 13.5% after 1st or 2nd mo postpartum. Results were similar in both trials. Reducing concentration of dietary crude protein(More)
AIMS We have previously shown that the (±)-[(13) C]-pantoprazole breath test is a promising noninvasive probe of CYP2C19 activity. As part of that trial, plasma, breath test indices and CYP2C19 (*2, *3, and *17) genotype were collected. Here, we examined whether [(13) C]-pantoprazole exhibits enantioselective pharmacokinetics and whether this(More)
Holstein heifers were treated with synthetic thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) or saline twice daily from one week through 6 mo of age. Plasma concentrations of prolactin (PRL) and thyrotropin (TSH) were elevated (P less than .01) within 30 min after the first TRH injection (1 week of age). At 1 and 3 mo of treatment, PRL and TSH increased in response to(More)
The bactericidal capacity of serum and peripheral blood leukocytes from newborn dairy calves (before receiving colostrum) and their dams for a strain of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus has been investigated. Comparative studies were conducted, using either unheated (freshly collected) and heated serums alone or in combination with cells from(More)
Recently, we have shown that the (+)-[(13)C]-pantoprazole is more dependent on CYP2C19 metabolic status than (-)-[(13)C]-pantoprazole. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that (+)-[(13)C]-pantoprazole is a more sensitive and selective probe for evaluating CYP2C19 enzyme activity than the racemic mixture. (+)-[(13)C]-pantoprazole (95 mg) was administered(More)
