Table 2 Least squares means of energy balance (EB) and energy balance as a percentage of requirements (EB % Req) in transition cows with high (HI; BCS ≥ 3.75) or low (LO; BCS ≤ 3.25) body condition score prepartum and postpartum. This data only represents the subset of cows used for adipose gene expression

From: Expression of fatty acid sensing G-protein coupled receptors in peripartal Holstein cows
