Abstract
The mammary gland is subject to dramatical biochemical and physiological alterations during its development and during the different stages of lactation and drying off. It also undergoes important morphological changes, starting from the fetal period, over puberty, gestation and lactation to drying off. Lactation itself can be divided into lactogenesis, galactopoiesis, and drying off. Lactogenesis starts before parturition and can be divided into lactogenesis I and II Galactopoeisis is the continuation of lactation. Both phases are under the control of different hormones. When milk yield decreases, cows are dryed off and this is accompanied by involution of the mammary gland. The incidence of intramammary infections is especially high in early lactation and at drying off. This review presents an overview of the physiological alterations and biochemical composition of the mammary gland secretions during these different stages of lactation and during the dry period in order to find an explanation for the high susceptibility of cows to mastitis during these particular periods of lactation.
