Increasing cows’ dry matter intake, or using more energy-dense diets prior to parturition, may prevent excessive lipid mobilization around parturition. On the other hand, feeding energy-dense diets for a prolonged time may lead to overconditioning at parturition followed by depressed appetite, reduced intake and more extensive lipid mobilization. The aim of the present study was to examine effects of pre-partum feeding on periparturient metabolic status in Estonian Holstein cows. Two weeks pre… CONTINUE READING
