Biochemical markers of bone formation and resorption around parturition and during lactation in dairy cows with high and low standard milk yields.

Abstract

Substantial changes occur in skeletal metabolism during lactation. These dynamic changes are monitored with biochemical bone markers. The goal of the present study was to follow these changes in lactating cows and to investigate whether cows with a higher milk yield have a higher mobilization rate of calcium from bone. Hydroxyproline, deoxypyridinoline… (More)
