Changes in management during this time can result in a multitude of problems including those associated with metabolic and energy imbalances, as well as infection of the uterus and mammary gland (Mulligan et al., 2006 and LeBlanc, 2008). The periparturient period can thus be quite a precarious phase in terms of the health of these ‘high performance athletes’ that are constantly balancing on a tightrope between health and disease.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||The Veterinary Journal||Volume:||196||Issue:||3||Start page:||284||End page:||285||Copyright (published version):||2013 Elsevier Ltd||Keywords:||Pregnancy; Lactation; Health; Disease; Management; Bovine||DOI:||10.1016/j.tvjl.2012.11.020||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
