Concentrations of oxytocin prolactin cortisol and luteinizing hormone in blood plasma of cows during milking using two types of milking equipment with different stimulation parameters



Concentrations of oxytocin prolactin cortisol and luteinizing hormone in blood plasma of cows during milking using two types of milking equipment with different stimulation parameters



Monatshefte fuer Veterinaermedizin 43(2): 53-54



A conventional milking machine was used on three cows in three consecutive milking sessions, while three other cows were milked by means of a machine with increased teat stimulation (intermittent compressed-air pulsation). Increased stimulation resulted in significantly higher concentrations of plasma-borne oxytocin, whereas cortisol and luteinising hormone remained unaffected. Alterations in prolactin concentration could not be unambiguously established.
