The purpose of this study was to determine whether haptoglobin (Hp) could be used as a predictive measure for metritis. Cattle were grouped into 3 health categories based on the condition of vaginal discharge and body temperature after calving: severe metritis (n = 12), mild metritis (n = 32), and healthy (n = 23). Blood was collected and analyzed for Hp concentration on d -20 +/- 5, -6 +/- 2, -2 +/- 1, and d 0 relative to calving, and then every 3 d after calving until d +21. Cows with mild… CONTINUE READING
