Fifty-five multiparous Holstein dairy cows were used to evaluate the singular and combined effects of somatotropin and monensin treatments during the late dry period on postpartum metabolism and production. Treatments were 1) control (C); 2) injection of exogenous bovine somatotropin (bST); 3) TMR top dressed with 300 mg of monensin/day (M); and 4) monensin and somatotropin in combination (bST+M) during the last 28 days before expected parturition. A 500-mg subcutaneous injection of sustained… CONTINUE READING
