Exogenous growth hormone alleviates the low milk fat syndrome in ewes

Exogenous growth hormone alleviates the low milk fat syndrome in ewes

Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia 13: 94

During 4 consecutive periods, 6 crossbred ewes with indwelling catheters of both jugular veins were given a diet to meet requirements for maintenance and milk production with saline subcutaneously (SC) daily during 5 days; saline SC daily and a continous infusion of glucose at 37.5% of estimated irreversible loss during 5 days; a glucose infusion and somatotropin 0.1 mg/kg liveweight SC daily during 4 days; or saline SC daily during 4 days.
