Nutritional status have been studied in dairy asses machine milked according to two different routines: 20 pluriparous asses, were divided into two groups subjected to two consecutive milkings at different intervals: group A was milked at 15:00h and 11:00h of the subsequent day, while group B was milked at 11:00h and 15:00h. Although the total milk yield was unaffected by the different milking management, in the morning milking group B showed a lower milk production than group A but higher levels of plasma energy indices, glucose, triglycerides, cholesterol, NEFA and phospholipids and plasma nitrogenous constituents, total protein and urea. The nutritional status of both groups matches the observed different amount of milk yielded in the morning milking and suggests different efficiency in mammary secretion, as a possible response to the milking strategy.

Abstract

Nutritional status have been studied in dairy asses machine milked according to two different routines: 20 pluriparous asses, were divided into two groups subjected to two consecutive milkings at different intervals: group A was milked at 15:00h and 11:00h of the subsequent day, while group B was milked at 11:00h and 15:00h. Although the total milk yield was unaffected by the different milking management, in the morning milking group B showed a lower milk production than group A but higher levels of plasma energy indices, glucose, triglycerides, cholesterol, NEFA and phospholipids and plasma nitrogenous constituents, total protein and urea. The nutritional status of both groups matches the observed different amount of milk yielded in the morning milking and suggests different efficiency in mammary secretion, as a possible response to the milking strategy.
