Variations in Copper Concentration and Ceruloplasmin Activity of Dairy Cows in Relation to Lactation Stages with Regard to Ceruloplasmin to Copper Ratios


Variations of copper (Cu) concentration and ceruloplasmin (Cp) activity in serum and plasma of dairy cows at different stages of lactation were assessed in 240 Holstein dairy cows. Furthermore, ceruloplasmin to copper ratios were also investigated. The cows were classified according to their lactation stages into four different groups as close-up stage (3–1… (More)
