  1. *Accounted for persistent uterine inflammatory condition by body condition score categories, persistent uterine inflammatory conditions by weeks in postpartum and body condition score categories by weeks in postpartum interactions, except for IGF-1 (P < 0.01); ‡A cow diagnosed with uterine disease at both initial and follow-up examinations was considered to have persistent inflammation.
