Plasma resistin, NEFA, glucose and insulin levels at 1 week post partum (WPP 1) and 5 months of gestation (5 MG) during the second lactation.

Plasma resistin, NEFA, glucose and insulin concentrations measured on the day of adipose tissue biopsy (1 WPP and 5 MG) in Holstein dairy cows. Animals (n = 8 in each group) were fasted for 12 hours before surgery Results are presented as means ± SEM. Results are considered significantly different if p<0.05. * and *** indicate significant differences at p<0.05 and p<0.0001, respectively.
