The objective of this study was to determine whether lactation function could be reinitiated after a period of extended milk stasis. Involution was induced by milk stasis in lactating Holstein cows for a period of 11 d. On d 11, one side of the mammary gland was milked twice daily for 3 d. The contralateral side remained unmilked for the 14-d experimental period. Cows were slaughtered, and mammary tissue was collected from both udder halves for further analysis. Mammary secretion volume was… CONTINUE READING
