The effect of induced parturition and estradiol on feed intake, liver triglyceride, plasma metabolites, and milk yield was evaluated in fifty-six Holstein cows and heifers. Cows were assigned to treatments on d 260 of gestation and were on trial until d 10 postpartum for measurement of dry matter intake (DMI), plasma metabolites, and liver triglyceride and until d 31 postpartum to measure milk yield. Fourteen animals per group (9 cows and 5 heifers) received either a placebo, 1 mg of… CONTINUE READING
