Simulated change in body fat as an indicator of energy balance in lactating dairy cows for different values of glucose content in the DMI. When c0=0.2, energy balance is negative throughout the lactation period (a). When c0=0.225 or higher, the period of negative energy balance becomes shorter (b,c). When c0=0.3, energy balance is positive throughout the lactation period (d)
