dc.description.abstract Identifying cattle at risk of developing stress-related pneumonia is important in reducing economic loss and maintaining animal health. Odorant-binding proteins (OBPs) help reduce inflammation in the upper respiratory tract of cattle. OBP levels are reduced in response to bacterial infection and inflammation. Cattle with low OBP levels may be at greater risk of developing stress-related pneumonia. en_US
