How Does Nutrient Metabolism Influence the Immune System? – Dr. Barry Bradford

January 30, 2015

In this fourth episode of the immune system series, Dr. Barry Bradford from Kansas State University looks into how nutrient metabolism influences the immune system in a dairy cow.  Are cows that have an infection, such as metritis, after calving more likely to also encounter metabolic issues, such as ketosis?  Watch Dr. Bradford’s discussion on how supporting the metabolic health of the animal through not only the diet, but outside factors as well, can help improve immunity and prevent metabolic disorders.
