Associations of cytological endometritis with energy metabolism and inflammation during the periparturient period and early lactation in dairy cows.

Abstract

Multiparous Holstein cows (n=108) were used to determine the associations of cytological endometritis (CE) with plasma nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA) and β-hydroxybutyrate (BHBA) as markers of energy metabolism, calculated energy balance (EB), and plasma haptoglobin (Hp) as a marker of inflammation during the periparturient period and early lactation… (More)
