Abstract:
During early lactation dairy cows often experience health disorders, which are usually associated with decreased production and reproduction variables. Following parturition, cows use more energy for maintenance and milk production than they consume and enter into a state of negative energy balance. Negative energy balance in early lactation is thought to contribute to decreased milk production, reduced reproductive performance, and increased health disorders. Flunixin meglumine (FM) is an anti-pyretic (fever reducing) and anti-inflammatory drug that is commonly used in the dairy industry. This study evaluated the effect of FM on pyrexia, production and bioenergetic variables in postparturient dairy cows.
