Two physiologic processes control partitioning of nutrients: homeostasis which operates continuously and maintains steady state conditions in the body; homeorhesis
which involves chronic redistribution of nutrients depending upon the priorities of specific tissues at specific times .
The BCS at calving explains the concept of homeorhesis
, which was defined decades ago as a set of metabolic alterations in the animal that has a genetic key to safeguard important biological functions such as the survival of the newborn (through milk provision) or reproduction .
