Interactions between three climatic conditions and exogenous adrenocorticotropin (200 IU) or saline on glucocorticoids of plasma were tested in six pregnant Holstein heifers. Animals were under cold (5 C, 30% relative humidity), thermoneutral (18 C, 50% relative humidity), and hot (35 C, and 80% relative humidity) conditions. Effects of treatment, interactions of environment with treatment, and environment with treatment with interval on glucocorticoids of plasma were measured through timed… CONTINUE READING
