Untersuchungen und Charakterisierung der Stoffwechselsituation von Milchkühen in der peripartalen Phase mithilfe der indirekten Kalorimetrie und der Herzfrequenzvariabilität

Universität Rostock, 2018

Abstract: In summary, this thesis confirmed the increased metabolic stress of dairy cows, especially in early lactation. It further showed that the occurring negative energy balance is much more pronounced than previously assumed when values estimated by using equations were regarded. However, some cows can deal better with metabolic stress situations and adapt to it in a different way. Using HRV, this study revealed that animals are reacting differently and that LMAX is a suitable parameter for predicting a lowered ability to adapt to metabolic loads.
