The objectives of this study were to characterize early postpartum (PP) follicular development in dairy cows and to evaluate the influence of energy balance (EB) and the level of dietary fat on dominant follicle development and function. Forty-five multiparous Holstein cows were fed either low (LF, 3.3%), moderate (MF, 5.2%), or high (HF, 7.1%) total dietary fat beginning at parturition, and daily EB was determined for all cows. Follicular development was monitored by ultrasonography, and blood… CONTINUE READING
