Increasing the milking intervals reduces milk yield. The aims of this study were to determine whether the reduction in milk yield could be explained by a decrease in mammary uptake of the nutrients or a decrease in the efficiency of the mammary gland in using the milk precursors to synthesize milk components, or both. In a Latin square design with 5 periods, 4 multiparous lactating dairy cows in midlactation were milked at 8-, 12-, 16-, or 24-h intervals over a period of 7 d. The cows were… CONTINUE READING
