Assessment of the sodium status in dairy cows

Assessment of the sodium status in dairy cows

IVth International Symposium of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians, Amsterdam, June 2-6, 1986: 348-351

On 20 dairy farms with a total of 506 lactating cows the mean daily sodium and potassium intakes ranged from 7 to 122 g and 210 to 494 g, respectively. Samples of urine, faeces and saliva were collected once from each of the cows between 1400 and 1700 h and Na and K estimated by flame photometry. It was shown that Na and K in urine were suitable parameters in assessing the Na supply to a dairy herd.
