A follow-up article has been published in Progressive Dairy called “Feed efficiency and metabolic health: How might we improve them both in the transition cow?“. Dr. Rafael Caputo Oliveira was also an author for this new article, as it explores the calculated feed and nitrogen efficiency, as well as circulating insulin concentrations during the transition to lactation period. The data comes from the manuscript “Postpartum supplementation of fermented ammoniated condensed whey improved feed efficiency and plasma metabolite profile” which was Editor’s Choice in March 2019 in the Journal of Dairy Science.
This article complements a previous article in which Dr. Heather White and Michael de Veth, Vice President of Fermented Nutrition, explored how and why Glucoboost, the product being discussed, is beneficial to transition cows.
