Effects of Exogenous Growth Hormone on Milk Production and Nutrient Uptake by Muscle and Mammary Tissues of Dairy Cows in Mid-lactation Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Responses to exogenous growth hormone were measured in lactating dairy cows surgically prepared to allow measurement of nutrient exchanges across mammary and hind-limb muscle tissues. Cows were injected daily with either saline or growth hormone, at a dose of 0�1 mg/kg liveweight, over periods of 6 days.
