Control of iron deficiency in calves and effects on pneumonia and diarrhoea diseases and live weight gain

, : Control of iron deficiency in calves and effects on pneumonia and diarrhoea diseases and live weight gain. Monatshefte fur Veterinarmedizin 42(10): 357-363

Daily administration of 300 mg Fe as ferrous tartrate (plus 150 mg ascorbic acid) added to the afternoon meal was a better source of iron for calves than 200 mg ferric iron dextran given as a drench between meals, though both forms were capable of overcoming iron deficiency.
