Plasma concentrations of indicators of inflammation (IL-1β, haptoglobin, and myeloperoxidase) and oxidative stress (reactive oxygen metabolites, ROM) energy balance (free fatty acids, NEFA; glycerol; insulin) in cows with high body condition score (HiBCS) or low body condition score (LoBCS) at parturition. a,bMeans between groups differ (BCS × Time P ≤ 0.05)
