  1. Effects of dry period length on milk production, body condition, metabolites, and hepatic glucose metabolism in dairy cows.

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(3):1772 (2015) PMID 25547307

    Dry period (DP) length affects energy metabolism around calving in dairy cows as well as milk production in the subsequent lactation. The aim of the study was to investigate milk production, body condition, metabolic adaptation, and hepatic gene expression of gluconeogenic enzymes in Holstein cows (...
  2. Effect of adding a gonadotropin-releasing-hormone treatment at the beginning and a second prostaglandin F2α treatment at the end of an estra...

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(2):947 (2015) PMID 25434339

    Our hypothesis was that fertility could be increased in a timed artificial insemination (TAI) protocol based on estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) by combining GnRH with E2-benzoate at the start of the protocol to increase circulating P4 during preovulatory follicle development and by using 2 pros...
  3. Grazing dairy cows had decreased interferon-γ, tumor necrosis factor, and interleukin-17, and increased expression of interleukin-10 during ...

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(2):937 (2015) PMID 25483203

    Peripartum, and especially during the transition period, dairy cows undergo dramatic physiological changes. These coincide with an increased risk of disease during the first 2 wk after calving and have been linked to dairy cows failing to achieve production as well as reproductive targets. Previous...
  4. Genome-wide association study for claw disorders and trimming status in dairy cattle.

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(2):1286 (2015) PMID 25497826

    Performing a genome-wide association study (GWAS) might add to a better understanding of the development of claw disorders and the need for trimming. Therefore, the aim of the current study was to perform a GWAS on claw disorders and trimming status and to validate the results for claw disorders bas...
  5. Serosal-to-mucosal urea flux across the isolated ruminal epithelium is mediated via urea transporter-B and aquaporins when Holstein calves a...

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(2):1204 (2015) PMID 25529427

    Urea transport (UT-B) proteins are known to facilitate urea movement across the ruminal epithelium; however, other mechanisms may be involved as well because inhibiting UT-B does not completely abolish urea transport. Of the aquaporins (AQP), which are a family of membrane-spanning proteins that are...
  6. Effect of corn silage particle size and supplemental hay on rumen pH and feed preference by dairy cows fed high-starch diets.

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(1):373 (2015) PMID 25465541

    The objectives of this experiment were to determine the effects of corn silage particle size and supplemental hay on rumen pH and feed preference in lactating dairy cows experiencing a bout of subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA). In this study, 12 lactating (8 ruminally cannulated), multiparous Holstei...
  7. Short communication: Chemical composition, fatty acid composition, and sensory characteristics of Chanco cheese from dairy cows supplemented...

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(1):111 (2015) PMID 25465558

    Lipid supplements can be used to alter fatty acid (FA) profiles of dairy products. For Chanco cheese, however, little information is available concerning effects of lipid supplements on sensorial properties. The objective of this study was to examine effects of supplementation of dairy cow diets wit...
  8. Short communication: Genetic relationships of milk coagulation properties with body condition score and linear type traits in Holstein-Fries...

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(1):685 (2015) PMID 25465560

    Milk coagulation properties (MCP) are gaining popularity among dairy cattle producers and the improvement of traits associated with MCP is expected to result in a benefit for the dairy industry, especially in countries with a long tradition in cheese production. The objectives of this study were to...
  9. Sampling location, herd size, and season influence Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis environmental culture results.

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(1):275 (2015) PMID 25465568

    We inferred that collectors had difficulties accessing certain areas in winter. Substitution of sample locations with others had minor effect on the sensitivity of sample sets containing 6 samples. However, set composition had an effect on the sensitivity of sample sets containing only 2 samples. In...
  10. Short communication: Antiproliferative effect of 8 different Lactobacillus strains on K562 cells.

    Journal of Dairy Science 98(1):106 (2015) PMID 25465570

    Some strains of Lactobacillus genus have antiproliferative activities against cancer cells. However, until now, the exact effector molecules of Lactobacillus strains with anticancer activity have not been identified. The aim of the present study was to explore which fraction of the Lactobacillus cel...
