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.
