Supporting Liver Function in dairy cows, cattle and sheep
The process of calving and the onset of lactation involve significant endocrine (hormone) changes for the cow. The onset of lactation sees a rapid increase in demand for glucose and amino acids for milk production putting significant pressure on the liver.
The above coupled with the mobilisation of body fat can put additional pressure on liver function and subsequent dairy cow performance, increasing the risk of metabolic disease. The metabolism of fat also creates significant quantities of free radicals. These if not oxidised have potential to damages cells further effecting metabolism. Free radicals effect the immune system increasing the likely hood of infections.
