A representative blood sample from the mammary vein depends on the functional integrity of the valves in the external pudic vein (EPV). To determine if the EPV valves maintain blood flow into the inguinal direction during the second and subsequent lactations, we used eight lactating cows catheterized in the EPV, the lateral branch of the cranial mammary vein (MV), and the external pudic artery (EPA).
