Lactating ewes received continuous intravenous infusions of adrenaline (0.05 micrograms/kg liveweight) for 4 days. Prior to, during and after adrenaline infusions, milk yield and composition were monitored. Plasma concentrations of metabolites and hormones were measured each day and glucose biokinetics were measured in non-steady state at the start and end of adrenaline infusions. During adrenaline infusion, milk yield and content of solids-not-fat decreased and milk fat content was reduced on… CONTINUE READING
