Abstract:
The effects of management strategy on performance and immune function of dairy cows during the transition and early lactation period Studies presented within this PhD have examined the impact of a number of prepartum and early lactation nutritional strategies on the performance of Holstein Friesian dairy cows. Cows used were high yielding dairy cows with a relatively low body condition score (BCS), and were managed on grass based diets. Parameters examined included feed intake, milk production, milk composition, body tissue change, metabolic function, inflammation, immune function and cow health and fertility.
