  1. Schäff C, Rohrbeck D, Steinhoff Wagner J, Kanitz E, Sauerwein H, Bruckmaier R, et al. Effects of colostrum versus formula feeding on hepatic glucocorticoid and α₁- and β₂-adrenergic receptors in neonatal calves and their effect on glucose and lipid metabolism. J Dairy Sci. 2014;97:6344-57 pubmed publisher
    ..In conclusion, our results indicate a dependence of GR and α₁-AR on milk feeding immediately after birth and point to an involvement of hepatic GR and AR in postnatal adaptation of glucose and lipid metabolism in calves. ..
  2. Gerbert C, Frieten D, Koch C, Dusel G, Eder K, Stefaniak T, et al. Effects of ad libitum milk replacer feeding and butyrate supplementation on behavior, immune status, and health of Holstein calves in the postnatal period. J Dairy Sci. 2018;101:7348-7360 pubmed publisher
    ..An improved animal welfare in Adl calves is supported by fewer signs of hunger, but intensive milk feeding and butyrate did not affect the health and immune status of the calves in a consistent manner. ..
  3. Maciej J, Schäff C, Kanitz E, Tuchscherer A, Bruckmaier R, Wolffram S, et al. Bioavailability of the flavonol quercetin in neonatal calves after oral administration of quercetin aglycone or rutin. J Dairy Sci. 2015;98:3906-17 pubmed publisher
  4. Weber C, Losand B, Tuchscherer A, Rehbock F, Blum E, Yang W, et al. Effects of dry period length on milk production, body condition, metabolites, and hepatic glucose metabolism in dairy cows. J Dairy Sci. 2015;98:1772-85 pubmed publisher
  5. Gruse J, Görs S, Tuchscherer A, Otten W, Weitzel J, Metges C, et al. The Effects of Oral Quercetin Supplementation on Splanchnic Glucose Metabolism in 1-Week-Old Calves Depend on Diet after Birth. J Nutr. 2015;145:2486-95 pubmed publisher
    ..Feeding colostrum during the first 2 d of life is crucial for maturation of splanchnic glucose metabolism in calves. Supplementing quercetin improves gastrointestinal absorption capacity, particularly in colostrum-deprived calves. ..
  6. Steinhoff Wagner J, Zitnan R, Schönhusen U, Pfannkuche H, Hudakova M, Metges C, et al. Diet effects on glucose absorption in the small intestine of neonatal calves: importance of intestinal mucosal growth, lactase activity, and glucose transporters. J Dairy Sci. 2014;97:6358-69 pubmed publisher

  8. Maciej J, Schäff C, Kanitz E, Tuchscherer A, Bruckmaier R, Wolffram S, et al. Short communication: Effects of oral flavonoid supplementation on the metabolic and antioxidative status of newborn dairy calves. J Dairy Sci. 2016;99:805-11 pubmed publisher
    ..In summary, orally administered quercetin and catechins at the dosages used in the present study resulted in weak effects on health and no effects on the metabolic and antioxidative status of newborn dairy calves. ..
  9. Weber C, Schäff C, Kautzsch U, Borner S, Erdmann S, Bruckmaier R, et al. Variable liver fat concentration as a proxy for body fat mobilization postpartum has minor effects on insulin-induced changes in hepatic gene expression related to energy metabolism in dairy cows. J Dairy Sci. 2017;100:1507-1520 pubmed publisher
    ..Insulin status is important for regulation of nutrient partitioning, but different LFC pp had very little influence on changes in hepatic gene expression following administration of insulin. ..

    ..Ad libitum MR feeding stimulated the systemic and hepatic IGF system and mirrored the greater growth rate during the ad libitum MR feeding, whereas butyrate supplementation partly reduced the systemic and hepatic IGF system. ..
