Transport stress in dairy calves. Effects of rearing conditions on acid-base balance, haematological variables, blood gas content and heart rate



Transport stress in dairy calves. Effects of rearing conditions on acid-base balance, haematological variables, blood gas content and heart rate



Tierarztliche Praxis Ausgabe G, Grosstiere/Nutztiere 29(1): 8-16



Dairy calves reared in groups of constant (Gk, N 16, m 9, w 7) and changing composition (Gw, N 16, m 9, w 7) and single box reared calves (E, N 11, m 7, w 4) were exposed to transport stress at 60 days of age. Heart rate were measured and blood samples were obtained before transport, immediately after transport and the day after transport. Mean differences in haemoglobin concentration (Hb), haemtocrit (Ht), lactate and metxyhaemoglobin between groups were found at all sampling times.
