Our previous research showed enhanced immune responses, including mitogen-induced blastogenesis of peripheral blood mononuclear cells from feedlot calves and periparturient dairy cows supplemented with dietary chromium (Cr). The objective of the present study were to test whether blood sera from Cr-supplemented periparturient cows contained immunomodulatory activity for mitogen-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells and, if so, to determine if this activity was explicable by differences… CONTINUE READING
