This paper describes the episodic release and response to adrenal stimulation of cortisol and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in cows. Observations made in samples taken every 10 min for 8 h (experiment 1) showed that plasma DHEA was significantly greater (P < 0.001) than DHEA-S, and release of these steroids was episodic and variable between animals (P < 0.01). No relationship was found between DHEA and cortisol. Significant (P < 0.001) DHEA-sulphate (DHEA-S) versus cortisol (R = -0.264) and… CONTINUE READING
