The metabolic profiling of an animal involves analysis of blood to evaluate internal functions and how these might affect the animal as a whole. The results are used to assess the nutritional state and fertility of animals, particularly those in the “transition period” – this is the time 3 weeks before and 3 weeks after birth. This information can then be used in the diagnosis and prediction of diseases in the herd, for example, milk fever, mastitis and fatty liver syndrome.
