Typically, central milk recording data from dairy herds are recorded less than monthly. Over-fitting early in lactation periods is a challenge, which we explored in different ways by reducing the number of parameters needed to describe the milk yield and somatic cell count of individual cows. Furthermore, we investigated how the parameters of lactation models correlate between parities and from dam to offspring. The aim of the study was to provide simple and robust models for cow level milk yield and somatic cell count (SCC) for fitting to sparse data to parameterise herd- and cow-specific simulation of dairy herds.Data from 610 Danish Holstein herds were used to determine parity traits in milk production regarding milk yield and SCC of individual cows. Parity was stratified in first, second and third and higher for milk, and first to sixth and higher for SCC. Fitting of herd level parameters allowed for cow level lactation curves with three, two or one-parameters per lactation. Correlations of milk

A lactation consultant (LC) is board-certified professional whos trained to help mothers on their breastfeeding journey. LCs carry the title International Board Certified Lactation Consultant® (IBCLC) which indicates that they have completed the hours of training, coursework, and certification required to be an official lactation consultant. What is the difference between a lactation counselor and an IBCLC?. A lactation counselor simply has a bit less training, therefore, she is on a different tier than an IBCLC. IBCLC completes more hours and has additional testing to be licensed. Most hospitals employ lactation counselors, who also often double duty as nurses, in the maternity ward. Both are wonderful!. After Labor. Many hospitals employ lactation counselors or consultants on the maternity floor. If so, following the birth of your baby, a lactation consultant or counselor will visit and see how breastfeeding is going. Shell watch you breastfeed and suggest various positions and latching ...
The disproportion between the cows genetically determined ability to produce milk and the limits to improving the energy value of feed may be the cause of the metabolic stress of animals kept at organic farms. Negative energy balance has a major impact on the bodys hormonal balance and the function of the organs; it also affects the content of basic components (protein, fat and lactose) in cows milk. The aim of the study was to investigate changes in the biological value of organic milk obtained from high producing dairy cows at different stages of lactation during pasture season. The study was carried out on 68 Polish Holstein-Friesian primiparous. 272 milk samples were collected from cows which were in one of the following phases: the beginning of lactation (BL): 5-30 days postpartum); peak of lactation (PL): 60-90 days postpartum; full lactation (FL): 120-150 days postpartum); end/final phase of lactation (EL): 250 days postpartum. Stage of lactation had an overriding effect on the majority of
An experiment was conducted with 30 lactating sows to determine the effects of high fat lactation diets on the body composition of suckling pigs and sow backfat composition. Sows were provided a lactation diet containing either zero or 10% tallow on an ad libitum basis for a 21-day lactation. No differences in feed intake during lactation were observed, although sows fed tallow consumed more metabolizable energy per day than control sows. Composition of backfat samples taken at weaning from sows suggested an increase in the amount of fatty acid synthesis in adipose tissue of control sows. Sows fed tallow weaned heavier litters, however, body composition of these pigs indicated this increased weight was almost exclusively fat. Additional research is required to determine the effects of this change in body composition in pigs at weaning on their subsequent performance and body composition.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Limits to sustained energy intake. AU - Speakman, John R.. PY - 2009/6. Y1 - 2009/6. N2 - During late lactation maternal food intake reaches a plateau, indicating that the female is limited in her sustained energy intake. We recently suggested that this limit is mediated by the capacity to dissipate heat. This is consistent with the fact intake at peak lactation and pup growth increase in cold (8 °C) and decrease in hot (30 °C) conditions. Moreover shaving mice at peak lactation allows them to increase their food intake and raise larger pups. A potential mechanism causing these effects is that suckling pups reduce the females capacity to dissipate heat, causing her body temperature to rise. We have instrumented mice with temperature transmitters and followed their body temperatures in relation to their suckling behaviour during peak lactation. These studies reveal that lactating females are under chronic hyperthermia. The patterns of body temperature change during suckling ...

Paper for Presentation at the 64th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Animal Science. The data consisted of 204,558 complete Holstein lactations in 2,100 herds compiled by the New York Dairy Records Processing Laboratory from 1959 to 1969. All lactation records had to have a 9th or 10th test day present to be regarded as complete. The generalized least squares analysis used a model including effects due to the mean, herd-year and season-age-stage of freshening which were assumed to be fixed. The error term included the random effects due to the cow and residual. Generalized least squares estimates for specified stages of lactation for milk and fat were found for lactations 1, 2, 3 and ≥ 4 which were grouped by age of freshening, two age groups for the first three lactations and one for ≥ four lactations. Extension factors will be presented which differ from current U.S.D.A. factors. The new factors emphasize the need for considering lactation number, season and age at freshening when

Last July, The Lactation Education, Accreditation and Approval Review Committee (LEAARC), International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®), and International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners® (IBLCE®) hosted a Lactation Summit. The Summit was the first event of a multi-year initiative to explore equity and diversity in the lactation consultant profession.. The 2014 Summit brought together important voices from diverse ethnicities and perspectives to share real-life experiences, obstacles, and challenges of underrepresented groups across the globe. The proceedings served as a Needs Assessment to identify the issues, barriers, and stakeholders involved in equitable access to the lactation consultant profession. The day-long meeting included listening sessions and small workgroup activities to identify barriers and potential strategies for devising an action plan to address inequities that limit access to the profession.. Those proceedings have been summarized in a Summary Report. ...
Good performance in extended lactations of dairy cattle may have a beneficial effect on food costs, health, and fertility. Because data for extended lactation performance is scarce, lactation persistency has been suggested as a suitable selection criterion. Persistency phenotypes were calculated in several ways: P1 was yield relative to an approximate peak, P2 was the slope after peak production, and P3 was a measure derived to be phenotypically uncorrelated to yield and calculated as a function of linear regressions on test-day deviations of days in milk. Phenotypes P1, P2, and P3 were calculated for sires as solutions estimated from a random regression model fitted to milk yield. Because total milk yield, calculated as the sum of daily sire solutions, was correlated to P1 and P2 (r=0.30 and 0.35 for P1 and P2, respectively), P1 and P2 were also adjusted for milk yield (P1adj and P2adj, respectively). To find genomic regions associated with the persistency phenotypes, we used a discovery ...

A pre-weaning calf feeding schedule with increased levels of calf milk replacer increases average daily weight gain of Holstein dairy calves, reduces culling rate and increases milk yield in first and second lactation resulting in an increase in lifetime milk production of dairy cows
Lactation consultants are specialists in the art and science of breastfeeding. They must have 100s, often 1000s of hours of clinical experience before earning the title, IBCLC. (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) If youre having trouble breastfeeding, or if you just want to avoid trouble down the road, hiring a lactation consultant can be very helpful. But how do you know if a particular lactation consultant has the experience and skills to help you?. You can start by asking your physician or midwife for a referral. Friends and neighbors are great referral sources as well. Then, make sure the LC is board certified. Finally, when choosing a lactation consultant, ask about her experience and approach. Listen carefully when you talk to her about your particular concern. Be wary of guarantees and promises of fantastic milk production no matter what.. Many of my clients come to me after a consultation with another professional. Some of these professionals claim to be lactation ...
The phenotypic relationships between type traits and functional traits were analysed in Czech Holstein dairy cows born between years 2002 and 2015, with minimum proportion of Holstein genes 88%. Two slightly different models were used to evaluate the effects of 1 measured trait (in cm), 20 linear type traits (9 classes each), 4 composite traits, and final score (both with scales 0 - 100 points) on milk production traits and longevity. Sample for analysis of effect on milk yield included observations from 247 790 cows within one to four lactations (570 671 rows in total), second sample for longevity study included data from 228 161 cows with sums of one to maximum six lactations. Cows were required to obtain type classification scores between 30th and 210th day of the first lactation in age between 650 and 1206 days. Milk yield (in kg) records below 5079 kg and above 16 622 kg were set to absent. Longevity traits were defined as lifetime performance, i.e. total milk yield in kg for whole ...
The University has a designated lactation room (A Mothers Place) in CHHS 305 (building 63 on this map) and a designated lactation room (A Mothers Place Too) in Atkins G38 (building 4 on this map), and is working to identify others. Lactation locations must be private, shielded from view, and not located in a restroom or common area. If an employee has a private office, it may be used for this purpose. If a dedicated lactation room is not accessible, supervisors should consider other options such as reserving a conference room as needed, adapting a clean and infrequently used small storage area, or converting an unused office or other room. If possible, the lactation location will contain a chair, electrical outlet, a small table or other flat surface, and a door with a lock.

Reproductive experience is associated with morphological and functional plasticity in brain areas important for cognitive and emotional responses, including the infralimbic (IL) medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC). Here we examined whether suboptimal conditions during a first lactation could modify lactation-induced morphological IL mPFC changes, leading to alterations in stress responses and attention and whether any observed effects would persist into a second lactation. Reduced availability of bedding and nesting material (LB) was used to induce unfavorable conditions in primiparous (P) mothers. In normal bedding (NB) conditions, P mothers exhibited high spine number and density on postpartum day (PPD)10, which greatly decreased 2 weeks after weaning of their pups. In contrast, P-LB mothers had a lower spine number and density on PPD10, which markedly increased after weaning. LB exposure did not modify stress responsiveness to a ferret odor on PPD5 in primiparous or in multiparous (M) females. ...
The aim of this study was to examine the correlation between bovine casein (CN) mRNA expression levels in mammary epithelial cells and lactation period, the yields of milk proteins and other parameters. The cells were collected from each cow??s milk, which contained somatic cell counts (SCC) of less than 100,000 cells/ml. The levels of ??s1-, ??s2-, ?? and ??CN mRNA expression were significantly correlated with each other in mammary epithelial cells (p,0.01). All cows produced either less than 30 kg/day/cow or a over 30 kg/day/cow level of milk yield (MY). It was shown that the CN mRNA expression levels decreased gradually from the calving period to late lactation, when MY was over 30 kg/day/cow. The SCC tended to increase gradually during the course of lactation, but it was negatively correlated with milk protein and CN yields (p,0.01) when MY was less than 30 kg/day/cow. Moreover, there was a tendency for a negative correlation between SCC and ??s1-CN and ??CN mRNA expression level, when MY ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Limits to sustained energy intake VIII: Resting metabolic rate and organ morphology of laboratory mice lactating at thermoneutralith. AU - Krol, Elzbieta Barbara. AU - Speakman, John Roger. PY - 2003. Y1 - 2003. N2 - We have previously shown that the food intake and milk production of MF1 laboratory mice lactating at 30degreesC, 21degreesC and 8degreesC increase as temperature declines. These data suggest that mice are not limited peripherally by the capacity of the mammary glands to produce milk but are limited by the capacity of the animal to dissipate body heat generated as a by-product of food processing and milk production. Here, we measure resting metabolic rate (RMR; prior to breeding and at peak lactation) and organ morphology (at peak lactation) in MF1 mice exposed to 30degreesC (thermoneutrality) and compare these traits with the same parameters measured previously in mice at 21degreesC and 8degreesC. The masses of visceral organs primarily responsible for energy flux ...

Early lactation: After ewes lambing, the abdomen is empty, physical weakness, poor digestive function, it is necessary to timely supplement the loss of nutrition and moisture. Within 7 days after delivery, drink 3 to 4 times of warm water every day. Add a small amount of bran and salt to the water. The diet should be dominated by tender hay, and grass and silage should be gradually increased after 7 days, and normal concentrates should be restored after two weeks. The lactation period: During this period, the ewes milk production keeps rising. Usually 30 to 45 days after childbirth is the peak of lactation. High-yielding sheep come late, about 60 to 70 days after childbirth. During this period the ewe’s appetite is strong and feed utilization is high. In order to keep the peak of lactation lasting longer, in addition to feeding high-quality hay, as much as possible should be allocated to grass, silage, and some tuber feeds. If the nutrition is still insufficient, 0.5 to 1 kg of mixed ...

An insurers failure to maintain and disclose a network of lactation support providers did not violate the Affordable Care Act (ACA) preventive health services mandate or ERISAs fiduciary duty requirements, the Eighth Circuit has ruled. The ACA mandates that group health plans and insurers provide coverage without cost-sharing for certain types of in-network preventive health services, including comprehensive lactation support services (see our Checkpoint article). The group health plan participants in this case brought a putative class action lawsuit against their insurer after it covered their claims for in-network lactation support services but denied claims for services they received from out-of-network providers. The participants described scheduling and availability issues with in-network providers and difficulties identifying alternate in-network lactation consultants via the insurers online provider list (which they said did not use lactation or similar terms) or customer service ...

Background: It has been shown that dietary protein supplementation during lactation boosts immunity in Nippostrongylus brasiliensis-infected periparturient rats. It is not known whether body protein reserves accumulated during gestation have a similar effect during lactation. Objective: This study aimed to quantify the impact of body protein reserves and dietary protein supplementation on maternal performances and immune responses to N. brasiliensis during lactation. Methods: Multiparous female Sprague-Dawley rats were given a primary infection of N. brasiliensis prior to mating and restrictedly fed either 60 g (Lge) or 210 g (Hge) crude protein (CP) per kg dry matter (DM) until parturition. Parturition onwards, dams were restrictedly fed either 100 g (Lla) or 300 g (Hla) CP per kg DM, generating 4 different dietary treatments. A subset of rats was sampled before parturition; post-parturition, dams were secondary infected with N. brasiliensis and samples were collected at day 5 and 11 post ...

Neonatal nutrition through mothers milk may be an important environmental factor in rats. Therefore, milk content should occasionally be measured to analyze its quality, but it is difficult to obtain sufficient amounts of rats milk for analyses. In this study, we developed a new device for sampling milk from rats and used it to evaluate dietary effects during pregnancy and lactation on the growth performance of pups. In addition, certain substances (carp gallbladder extract and pumpkin heated water extract) were given to pregnant Wistar rats and their effects of stimulating mothers milk secretion were examined. Milk samples were obtained using the newly developed device on the 7th, 14th, and 21st postpartum days. The body weights of dams increased during pregnancy, but the milk volume and body weight (pups) were not significantly different. These findings suggest that the above-mentioned dietary supplementation during pregnancy and lactation may not improve milk quantity, but it is ...
The objective of this study was to investigate the use of four different mathematical functions (Wood, Inverse Polynomial, Quadratic and Cubic models) for describing the lactation curve of unimproved Awassi ewes. Data were collected from 136 ewes from the same flock raised on the State Farm of Gözlü in the Konya Province of Turkey. The differences in estimated total milk yields between the models were not statistically significant. All models were adequate in describing total milk yield, though total milk yield estimated using the Cubic model was very close to total milk yield calculated by the Fleischmann method. Age effects on model parameters were not significant. The Inverse Polynomial model overestimated the peak yield significantly. Estimated peak yields of the Wood and Cubic model were similar while that obtained from the Quadratic model was significantly lower than that of the other models. Day of peak yield estimated by the models varied between 10.2 and 56.4 days. The differences ...

Offered by Université de lIllinois à Urbana-Champaign. Lactation and especially milk, which is the product of that unique mammalian process, are routinely encountered within our daily lives. Nevertheless, they often are poorly understood by many, even including many who are engaged in the business of producing milk. The overall course goal is to introduce fundamental concepts that form the basis for understanding the biology of lactation, the biology of the mammary gland, and the products of that important physiological process. As a learner in this course, you will be provided with a series of easily understood presentations that collectively will help you build a foundation for greater understanding of lactation. You will be able to engage with other learners so that you can extend your learning beyond the video presentations. Ultimately, you will be able to construct your own mental model for understanding the wide range of topics that relate to the biology of lactation. Upon completion of the
UWMs Lactation Program is intended to provide lactating, nursing mothers with educational and environmental support of their breastfeeding goals. The word lactation is used to clarify and avoid the implication that the mothers would need to have their babies at work to nurse them, rather, the program is designed to help nursing mothers to be able to pump and store their breast milk, at work, to take home to their infants at the end of the workday.. For nursing mothers, lactating requires a clean and comfortable environment with privacy. UWM has established several private rooms on campus that have been designated for nursing mothers.. University Housing lactation rooms are located in Cambridge Commons, Kenilworth Square Apartments, RiverView Residence Hall, and Sandburg Hall*.. All rooms have the following features: electrical outlets, a comfortable chair, a small fridge, a lockable door, and nearby running water..

An International, Board Certified, Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) at BUMC championed a project that filled the gap in lactation support, which is given to patients throughout the Womens and Childrens service line, by creating the crew. The crew consists of nurses that underwent training and were committed to serving their individual units needs regarding breastfeeding. The L&D crew is addressing barriers to breastfeeding on our unit and is implementing changes to overcome these challenges. In particular, we re-purposed a patient breastfeeding education sheet used by the lactation department. By adding the breastfeeding education sheet to our electronic system, it prints with the chart and is readily accessible to staff. Also, crew members are assessing attitudes and comfort levels of L&D nurses regarding lactation support by using an online survey. Once survey results are analyzed, in-services and staff education will be implemented that focuses on topics such as hand expression of colostrum ...
Special to the Trice Edney News Wire from WomenseNews) - SakiaLynn Johnson was cautiously optimistic. Last year, as one of two African-American international board certified lactation consultants in Florida, she had been asked to lead an African-American special interest group for the first time in the history of the Inter-national Lactation Consultants Associations annual conference. It is the largest gathering of lactation consultants in the world.. Never mind that she was asked one month prior, when these conferences are likely planned a year in advance, and never mind that the time-7 a.m.-was not exactly primetime. But even in the small room that was assigned to the meet-up Johnson envisioned a sea of Black and brown lactation consultants certified by the organization, the ones she hoped existed even though she had only met a handful in her decade-long career.. About 23 people showed up.. Only six were African-American. Including Johnson herself.. The situation wasnt what she had hoped, ...
Lately there seems to be a lot of confusion about just who is qualified to dispense breastfeeding advice. Historically, the term lactation consultantrefers to a health care professional who has met the qualifications for, and passed the exam given by, the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners. Passing the exam permits her to use the letters IBCLC after her name. Unfortunately the term lactation consultant is not trademarked so there are no regulations about who uses that term. If youre seeking help for breastfeeding be sure that your consultant has received extensive training, including at least 500 supervised clinical hours specific to lactation.. In the last 10 years or so some organizations have begun offering certifications for programs that involve a mere week or so of didactic instruction. The coursework is valuable, but does not provide the depth and breadth of training required to become IBCLC. On the other hand, other healthcare professionals, such as MDs, have ...

Two hundred two sows (98 parity 1 and 104 parity 2 sows) were used in a 2 x 3 factorial arrangement of treatments to determine the effect of dietary valine and lysine on sow lactation performance. Treatments included two levels of lysine (.8 or 1.2%) and three valine to lysine ratios (80, 100, 120% of lysine). This experiment was conducted at a research farm of a production facility in New South Wales, Australia from January to March, 1994. For all sows, increasing dietary lysine increased litter weaning weight and litter weight gain and reduced sow weight loss. Increasing dietary valine tended to increase litter weight gain. Parity 1 sows had a greater response in litter weight gain to dietary lysine than parity 2 sows. Parity 1 sows also exhibited a linear increase in litter weight gain as dietary valine increased. Parity 2 sows had an increase in litter weight gain at the low lysine level but a decrease in litter weight gain at the high lysine level with increasing valine in the diet. Both ...
Breastfeeding by women who had GDM was associated with a ,40% long-term reduction of the risk of developing postpartum diabetes. Risk reduction was most pronounced when lactation was continued for at least 3 months, and the beneficial effects of lactation on diabetes risk were sustained over time. Postpartum diabetes risk also was influenced by islet autoantibody status, insulin treatment during pregnancy, and obesity.. These are novel findings in women with GDM; no previous study has shown a sustained effect of lactation on diabetes risk reduction for up to 15 years postpartum. Strengths of the study include the long prospective follow-up (up to 19 years after delivery) and regular screening for diabetes using an OGTT. Unlike other studies, the recall period was short, with lactation duration data obtained at 9 months and 2 years postpartum. A proportion of participants had developed diabetes by the time lactation status was assessed, and some recall bias cannot be excluded. This is likely to ...
After losing an infant, grieving mothers may still have to cope with postpartum issues, including lactation. This presentation reviews and addresses care options for lactation concerns after pregnancy, neonatal, or infant loss. Currently, lactation care and advice after loss varies greatly.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Wound healing-like immune program facilitates postpartum mammary gland involution and tumor progression. AU - Martinson, Holly A.. AU - Jindal, Sonali. AU - Durand-Rougely, Clarissa. AU - Borges, Virginia F.. AU - Schedin, Pepper. PY - 2015/4/15. Y1 - 2015/4/15. N2 - Women diagnosed with breast cancer within 5 years postpartum have poor survival rates. The process of postpartum mammary gland involution, whereby the lactating gland remodels to its prepregnant state, promotes breast cancer progression in xenograft models. Macrophage influx occurs during mammary gland involution, implicating immune modulation in the promotion of postpartum breast cancer. Herein, we characterize the postpartum murine mammary gland and find an orchestrated influx of immune cells similar to that which occurs during wound healing. Further, the normal involuting gland may be in an immunosuppressed state as discerned by the transient presence of Foxp3+ regulatory T cells and IL-10+ macrophages with T cell ...
There are few studies on the effects of MgSO4 supplementation on sow and litter performance during late gestation and lactation. In our study, no significant differences were observed in the pregnancy parameters (litter size, litter weight) among the treatments, which may suggest that MgSO4 had no effects on the growth and development of fetuses during late gestation. Rattanatayarom et al. (2000) reported that pregnancy parameters were not adversely affected in sows supplemented with magnesium-L-aspartate hydrochloride daily at a dose of 13 mg Mg per kg BW starting 0 to 4 days before mating. The present data indicated that the average piglet weaning weight and ADG during the suckling period were not affected by adding MgSO4, but the survival percentage and the litter weight at weaning were declined linearly with increasing level of MgSO4. On the contrary, Trawńska et al. (2013) reported that the feeding of pregnant sows with the addition of MgCl2·6H20 (1 g/100 kg BW/d), which constituted 120 ...
An on-farm experiment was conducted utilizing 189 sows to evaluate the effect of adding 396 soybean oil to the lactational diet on subsequent pig performance and sow weight loss. Feeding sows a diet containing 3% soybean oil during lactation did not significantly decrease sow weight loss or improve litter performance. However, the oil addition tended to increase individual pig weaning weight (.5 Ib), litter weaning weight (3 lb), and sow feed intake (.5 lb/day) compared to feeding a 14% crude protein milo-soybean meal diet. Also, sow lactational weight loss was slightly reduced wit h the diet containing oil. Calculated metabolizable energy intake was increased (P,.01) for sows fed the diet with soybean oil compared to sows fed the control diet. We postulate that the increased calorie intake from adding soybean oil to sow lactation diets during the summer months may increase litter weaning weight ...
Among women with and without GDM pregnancies, a longer cumulative duration of lactation was strongly protective, even after controlling for parity and baseline covariates, including components of the metabolic syndrome before pregnancy. For women with non-GDM pregnancies, there was a threshold effect with lactation ,1 month conferring protection compared with 0-1 month. Among women with GDM pregnancies, we found a strong, graded inverse association of lactation with incidence of the metabolic syndrome, those with longest lactation approaching the non-GDM incidence rate of the metabolic syndrome. The associations remained after controlling for mediators such as changes in physical activity or weight gain during follow-up, with a stronger protective association among the GDM group.. Associations were similar within race and BMI groups, especially for women with a history of GDM. However, black women had much shorter duration of lactation that limited our ability to fully assess the association of ...
Maternal investment during lactation is higher than during gestation, and it is the most energetically expensive period in a mammals life cycle. Pinnipeds (seals, sea lions, fur seals, and walruses) are one of the principal groups of aquatic mammals that are adapted to reside on land and at sea. During lactation they secrete and rapidly transfer lipid-rich and energy-dense milk to the pup, and they rely on land or ice to give birth to and nurse their pups, and as a consequence, foraging at sea and nursing of the young on land are separated by space and time. Lactation strategies in pinnipeds have evolved to meet particular environmental conditions, and because of their worldwide distribution, they have evolved into two main lactation strategies: fasting strategy and foraging strategy. Both strategies rely on energy reserves for the production of energy-dense and nutrient-rich milk. In comparison with the milk of land and marine mammals, the milk of pinniped is characterized by (a) high milk fat

Mathematical functions to describe a series of milk test day records have the advantage of minimizing random variation, while simultaneously summarizing the lactation profile. Five empirical functions and two mechanistic models were used to model herd and individual milk yield profiles of multiparous Holstein-Friesian cows on 113, 290 milk yield records (8438 lactations) collected from 1994-2005. The models tested were the incomplete gamma (IG), a modified gamma (MG), an exponential (EXP), a polynomial regression (PR), a mixed log (ML), the bi-compartmental (BC), and Dijkstra (DJ) functions, the latter two being mechanistic models. Each model was fitted using the non-linear (NLIN) function of SAS. Model accuracy was evaluated based on residual mean square (RMS), the magnitude and distribution of residuals, and the correlation between the observed and predicted values. All the models, except MG, did equally well in portraying the lactation profile. Parameter estimates were significant (P,0.05), ...

Transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) is widely recognised as an important factor that regulates many steps of normal mammary gland (MG) development, including branching morphogenesis, functional differentiation and involution. Tif1γ has previously been reported to temporally and spatially control TGFβ signalling during early vertebrate development by exerting negative effects over SMAD4 availability. To evaluate the contribution of Tif1 γ to MG development, we developed a Cre/LoxP system to specifically invalidate the Tif1g gene in mammary epithelial cells in vivo. Tif1g-null mammary gland development appeared to be normal and no defects were observed during the lifespan of virgin mice. However, a lactation defect was observed in mammary glands of Tif1g-null mice. We demonstrate that Tif1 γ is essential for the terminal differentiation of alveolar epithelial cells at the end of pregnancy and to ensure lactation. Tif1 γ appears to play a crucial role in the crosstalk between TGFβ and ...
European Micronutrients Recommendations Aligned project aims to harmonize dietary recommendations throughout Europe. Recommended nutrient intakes during lactation are based on limited data and are often extrapolated from known secretion of the nutrient in milk with adjustments for bioavailability, so that differences between values can be partly ascribed to differences in methodological approaches and how these approaches were applied. Few studies have considered the impact of lactation on the mothers nutritional status. Rather, focus has been placed on the influence of maternal nutritional status on the composition of her breast milk. Most common nutritional deficits in breast milk are the result of maternal deficiencies of the water-soluble vitamins, thiamine, riboflavin and vitamins B6 and B12. Other than maternal vitamin A status, which to some extent is reflected in breast milk, concentrations of fat-soluble vitamins and most minerals in breast milk are less affected by maternal status. ...
Lactation in mammals can be highly variable to accommodate the requirements of the individual species. For example, the lactation period in mammals is normally allometrically linked, with larger mothers lactating for longer (Lefèvre et al., 2010). Yet, one of the shortest lactating periods, as little as 4-5 days, occurs in seals, which provide their young with copious amounts of fat-laden milk (as feeding grounds for the mothers can be hundreds of kilometres away), whereas some primates lactate for up to 900 days (Lefèvre et al., 2010). The composition of milk can also be changed to meet the differing demands of the developing young. This is nicely demonstrated in marsupials, where different-aged young attached to different teats at the same time in the same pouch feed on milk of different composition. Likewise, mammals generally adjust the composition of their milk as their young develop (Lefèvre et al., 2010). Bird lactation has its own special advantages, being able to be mixed with ...
Human breast milk is considered the optimal nutrition for infants, providing essential nutrients and a broad range of bioactive compounds, as well as its own microbiota. However, the interaction among those components and the biological role of milk microorganisms is still uncovered. Thus, our aim was to identify the relationships between milk microbiota composition, bacterial load, macronutrients, and human cells during lactation. Bacterial load was estimated in milk samples from a total of 21 healthy mothers through lactation time by bacteria-specific qPCR targeted to the single-copy gene fusA. Milk microbiome composition and diversity was estimated by 16S-pyrosequencing and the structure of these bacteria in the fluid was studied by flow cytometry, qPCR, and microscopy. Fat, protein, lactose, and dry extract of milk as well as the number of somatic cells were also analyzed. We observed that milk bacterial communities were generally complex, and showed individual-specific profiles. Milk microbiota was
The aim of our research was the examination of breast-milk composition from mothers living in the Csík region and to follow their milk composition variations during lactation.

The breast milk samples were collected from healthy mothers with similar habits and age. The milk samples were collected with a hand pump at ...
pubmed/1515752 As a follow up to yesterdays discussion about casein, human milk has a changing proportion the the two main proteins in milk: casein and whey. Both the casein portion and the whey portion contain important ingredients of human milk. But those constituents are constantly changing throughout lactation. There is very little to no casein made in early lactation. Its production then spikes and then decreases. The whey protein concentration continually falls from its highest amount in early lactation. These changes result in a whey protein/casein ratio of about 90:10 in early lactation, 60:40 in mature milk and 50:50 in late lactation. These ratios are not copied by substitutes for human milk. Human milk is a dynamic fluid, constantly changing and ....more than just food. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1515752. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________.

2017The incidence of metabolic and infectious diseases varies greatly during the lactation cycle. Most new cases of clinical mastitis appear at the beginning of lactation, and the incidence increases with the level of milk production. In addition to mastitis, many other infectious diseases become clinically apparent during the first 2 weeks of lactation. During this time, cows are in a negative energy balance and must mobilize body reserves to balance the deficit between food energy intake and energy required for milk production. The relationships between energy deficit and metabolic diseases, such as ketosis and hepatic lipidosis, are well known. Furthermore, cows in energy deficit have a weakened immune system and are therefore more susceptible to infections. There is now good evidence that the increase in circulating non-esterified fatty acids impairs immune cell functions. Therefore, management approaches that reduce the negative energy balance and the increase in non-esterified fatty acids ...
Developmental protein restriction is associated with numerous diseases including obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, both in the mother and offspring. Recent intensive research efforts have focused on the mechanisms behind the effects of a maternal low protein diet on diseases in offspring. However, thus far, the mechanisms behind the physiological and molecular adaptations in the mother in response to protein restriction during pregnancy and lactation are not well understood. Because skeletal muscle and liver have a critical role in energy metabolism, including pregnancy and lactation-associated metabolic adaptations, the present study will investigate the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms behind the physiological changes that occur in response to a protein restricted diet during pregnancy and lactation in the skeletal muscle and liver of rat dams. The amino acid response (AAR) pathway is important in responding to stress, such as amino acid limitation, and our previous data show that ...
Changes in plasma protein fractions level during pregnancy, lactation and in nonpregnant, nonlactating female chinchillas were investigated. Pregnancy and lactation were divided into following periods: from first to 37th day, from 38th to 74th day, from 75th to 111th day (pregnancy) and from 7th to 20th day, from 30th to 46th day and from 54th to 62nd day (lactation).

The production level of dairy cows fed corn cannery waste silage was investigated during a 305 day lactation study. Eighteen Holstein cows were paired according to their probable producing ability and field corn silage was fed to the control pairmates, Forage analyses (DM, CP, CF, and nitrates) were determined on the silages and hay. Grain was fed according to production, silage was fed ad libitum and ten lbs. of alfalfa hay was fed daily and all refusals were recorded. Those fed corn cannery waste silage produced less milk, fat and solids-not-fat (P,. 05) than the controls. Persistency of lactation was less for the corn cannery waste fed cows (285 day lactations) compared to controls (304 day lactations). Fat corrected milk production averaged 15717 lbs of milk for the corn cannery waste fed cows compared to 17137 lbs for the cows fed field corn silage. Body weight gains were greater for the cows fed field corn silage. There were no noticeable differences in health and reproduction between ...
Having a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) implanted immediately after birth does not affect a womans ability to lactate and breastfeed, according to new research by investigators at University of Utah Health and University of New Mexico School of Medicine. The results of this study are available online August 21 in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.. Bottom line, early placement of a hormonal IUD is a safe, long-term birth control method that doesnt negatively affect women who want to breastfeed their baby, said first author David Turok, M.D., associate professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at U of U Health.. Medical practitioners often recommend that mothers delay receiving a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) for several weeks after delivery to ensure the hormones do not interfere with normal lactation, but until now the approach had remained largely untested.. The new research by found that womens milk did not come in later if they received a hormonal ...
Now in its second edition, Drugs and Human Lactation is a comprehensive guide to the content and consequences of xenobiotics and micronutrients in human milk, and remains by far the most thorough and extensive work available on this subject. The excellent methodology used for the compilation of the 1st edition has been retained.It begins with an outline of the processes by which substances enter milk during its formation, the effects of drugs on the milk production process, the main determinants of drug excretion into milk and their disposition in the child. There follows an analysis of current data on 234 individual drugs, describing the extent of their passage into human milk, and assessing the risk to the suckling infant. Vitamins and essential trace elements, and radiopharmaceuticals are similarly reviewed. Also included is an account of the factors that influence the passage of environmental and occupational chemicals into milk. The result is a complete overview of what is known and proven, with
The bad news: the magic ingredient in the Newman-Goldfarb protocol is a Domperidone - a drug that is given to relieve nausea and vomiting. A drug whose major side effect is that it induces lactation because it increases decreases the bodys release of dopamine which in turn increases prolactin, which in turn causes lactation. It is probably used more often for its off label use than it is for its primary intent. Domperidone is not FDA approved - meaning that it is nearly impossible and possibly illegal to get in the US. There is a legal drug that can also increase lactation called Metoclopramide, but it has some pretty nasty side effects (much more nasty than Domperidone) and can also be passed through breast milk - making it not really a suitable alternative. Also, to add insult to serious injury, my insurance may not cover a breast pump since I will not have given birth. I will need a hospital grade pump for this to work and those are NOT cheap. Since those cost over $2,000 to buy new, I ...
In a prior study, we observed that cows with a 0-d dry period had greater energy balance and lower milk production compared with cows with a 30- or 60-d dry period in early lactation. The objective of the current study was to evaluate the influence of dry period length on metabolic status and hepatic gene expression in cows fed a lipogenic or glucogenic diet in early lactation. Holstein-Friesian dairy cows (n = 167) were assigned randomly to 3 × 2 factorial design with 3 dry period lengths (n = 56, 55, and 56 for 0-, 30-, and 60-d dry, respectively) and 2 early lactation diets (n = 84 and 83 for glucogenic and lipogenic diet, respectively). Cows were fed a glucogenic or lipogenic diet from 10 d before the expected calving date and onward. The main ingredient for a glucogenic concentrate was corn, and the main ingredients for a lipogenic concentrate were sugar beet pulp, palm kernel, and rumen-protected palm oil. Blood was sampled weekly from 95 cows from wk 3 precalving to wk 8 postcalving. ...

By: Derek Nolan and Jeffrey Bewley Printable Version. The dry period is a very critical time for dairy cows. It is supposed to be a time for the cows to recuperate from the previous lactation and to get ready for the next lactation. Even though it is a break for the cow, the dry period can also be one of the busiest times for intramammary infections. Because the cow is not being milked, any pathogens in the udder are not being removed and, therefore, have the chance to multiply. This is the reason that dry cow treatment is so important. But are cows with a healthy udder at dry off in danger of contracting an intramammary infection during the dry period? Antimicrobial resistance is becoming a concern and is making the dairy industry rethink treating all cows at dry off, often termed blanket dry cow treatment, which is a very widely used protocol in mastitis management. As this concern grows, farmers are looking into selective dry cow treatment, or only treating problem cows, to cut down on ...
Lemay et al. [5] used the Bos taurus genome sequence (draft 3.1, August 2006) and expression libraries derived from tissue obtained during various stages of mammary development and lactation status to identify unique milk proteins and mammary-related proteins. With the exception of four milk-protein gene clusters (casein genes, immunoglobulin genes, fibrinogen genes and genes encoding proteins of the milk fat globule), they found that milk-protein genes do not cluster with each other, but rather tend to cluster with other lactation genes. They also did not cluster by developmental stage or gene duplication, suggesting that these genes clustered to facilitate coordinate gene expression.. The bovine genome was compared with six other mammalian genomes: human, dog, mouse and rat (eutherians), opossum (marsupial) and platypus (monotreme). In general, milk and mammary genes were more conserved and seemed to evolve more slowly than others in the bovine genome, despite selective breeding for milk ...

Bovine milk is a valuable and widely consumed source of high-value protein and fat. The cytological mechanism of milk synthesis and secretion in cattle is well-described[1], however, the molecular mechanisms responsible for variations in the components of milk require further investigation given the importance of these processes for human nutrition. In dairy cattle, the heritability of milk protein yield has been estimated to be approximately 23%[2]. If the polymorphisms contributing to milk traits were identified, this information could be used in breeding programs to increase milk protein yields. Furthermore, identification of the gene pathways involved will contribute to the understanding of the mechanisms that regulate lactation and to the development of new approaches to improve milk production and the value of milk proteins for human nutrition.. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have become a popular methodology to identify genomic regions containing variants affecting complex traits. ...

Source: The Conversation (Au and NZ) - By Evelyn Volders, Senior Lecturer/Course Convenor in Nutrition and Dietetics, Monash University. If youre a new mum, its likely youve come across lactation cookies. Perhaps women in your mothers group are talking about them, or theyve popped up in your Instagram feed, or youve seen them on the shelves while out shopping for your little one.. Breastfeeding mothers almost all question their milk supply at one time or another, and will naturally look for solutions to ensure their milk flow is meeting babys needs.. Lactation cookies, or biscuits, arent going to do women any harm. But theres no evidence they can promote milk flow, either.. So if youre really concerned about your milk supply, its best to see a professional who will be able to assess whether theres a problem and recommend evidence-based solutions.. ...

A total of 136,250 monthly test day milk records collected from 13,625 Iranian Holstein heifers (three times a day milking) calved between 1991 and 2001 and distributed over 264 herds were used to study the effects of some environmental factors influencing lacta-tion curve parameters as well as production characteristics. Wilminks function (Yt = W0 + W1t + W2e-0.05t) was fitted to individual lactations. Least squares analysis of variance in-dicated that the herd, year and month of calving had a significant effect on all traits under consideration. Correlation analysis showed that the parameter W0 had a negative and significant (p
