The metabolic profiling of an animal involves analysis of a blood sample to evaluate its internal functions; the results can then be interpreted to assess health and nutritional status. Of particular interest, are ewes in the “transition period” – the time 3 weeks before and 3 weeks after birth. This information can be used in the diagnosis and prediction of diseases in both the flock and individual.
