Unfortunately, we are seeing plenty of this in the field this season already, due to low levels of magnesium in pasture as soil temps drop. Things to consider:

  • Mg is the only mineral that cannot be stored by the animal and needs to be fed every day

  • Mg is absorbed in the rumen, so if fibre levels are low, cows scour and even less Mg is absorbed

  • Signs of Grass Tetany include skittish, erratic behaviour, sharp drop in milk production/calf growth rates, dead

  • Supplementing with Bovine Boost has been shown to be a cost-effective way to reduce losses in production. No molasses, cows will self-regulate and only take what they need. Easy.
