  1. A, B, C, D – values in rows with different letters differ significantly P < 0.01.
  2. a, b, c, d– as above for P < 0.05.
  3. DSBa – dams of singleton stillborn calves which internal organs showed significant autolytic changes, DSBn – dams of singleton stillborn calves without or with negligible autolytic changes in internal organs, DC – dams of live-born calves, LC – cows during mid to late lactation.
