Abstract Increasing daily activity of dairy cattle during the dry period by physical exercise can induce fat metabolism in an early stage before calving. This metabolic stimulation contributes to the adaptation of dairy cow metabolism to the high level of activity needed for milk production postpartum. Physical exercise during the dry period does not result in a higher milk yield after calving, but can reduce the risk for metabolic disorders like ketosis and fatty liver disease, especially in dairy cows that have a high body condition score at dry-off.
