The sutures in the skulls of young mammals have been advanced as a beautiful adaptation for aiding parturition
, and no doubt they facilitate, or may be indispensable for this act; but as sutures occur in the skulls of young birds and reptiles, which have only to escape from a broken egg, we may infer that this structure has arisen from the laws of growth, and has been taken advantage of in the parturition
of the higher animals.
To rephrase Shakespeare's Juliet, parturition
is such sweet sorrow.
The transition period, from 21 d before to 21 d after parturition
, is the most stressful time in the production cycle of dairy cows because of depressed dry matter intake (DMI) and marked changes in metabolism that support late gestation, parturition
and the onset of milk synthesis [1-3].
Her research experience relates to pregnancy, mortality, parturition
, blood pressure, diabetes, and sexual behavior as risk factors for the human papillomavirus infection.
Their topics include advocate of Mary: Marian parturition
in medieval Iberian literature and culture, on the sources and contexts of late medieval Castilian devotional practice: pain and popular piety in G mes Manrique's Representaci n del nacimento de Nuestro Senor, listening and learning from Oria in Berceo's Vida de Santa Oria, and Mary's virginity in Ramon Lhull's Libre de Santa Maria.
Most of the cows in first or later parturition
belonged to the zebu group (41.67% and 48.66%, respectively) followed by the crosses between zebus and Bos Taurus taurus (27.08% and 26.20% respectively).
The expected hypothesis was that the combination of uterine lavage and oxytocin administration performed 4 h before and 4 h after breeding in foal heat would shorten the interval between parturition
and first ovulation, increase pregnancy rates and decrease early embryonic death rates.
The efficacy of this ventilation method can be variable in function of the environmental conditions, as well as in function of the parturition
order of the sows (Romanini et al., 2008; Barbari & Conti, 2009).
Mammary cell activity and milk yield is stimulated by increased milking frequency (Knight and Wilde, 1987; Knight and Wilde, 1993) and suckling from one parturition
to the next (Farmer, 2013).
CAN INDUCTION OF PARTURITION
EFFECT THE VAGINAL BACTERIAL FLORA IN EWES?
At one month post parturition
, copper levels in supplemented dams showed significant increase from zero day values respectively.
