Highly efficient genetic selection and improvement in overall management has resulted in a national average of ca. 10,000 kg of milk per year in USA. The 2012 USDA annual rep ...

During early lactation (i.e. the first 60 days of lactation), the massive repartition of nutrients to the mammary gland for milk synthesis has been identified as a major contributor to the high risk of developing diseases . This repartition of energy toward the mammary gland is not compensated via feed intake, that is also reaching a nadir during early lactation . The requireme ...
