Cupric oxide needles for grazing cattle consuming low-copper, high-molybdenum forage and high-sulfate water



Cupric oxide needles for grazing cattle consuming low-copper, high-molybdenum forage and high-sulfate water



Journal of Animal Science 67(1): 252-261



In a 92-day grazing trial, 37 Hereford cows were given a single oral dose of copper oxide needles (CuON containing 79.9% Cu) 0, 25 or 50 g and their calves given CuON 0 or 20 g. Pasture grass contained Cu 1.6-5.5 and molybdenum 2.5-5.5 mg/kg DM, and total sulphur 1.3-1.5 g/kg DM. Drinking water contained sulphate 947 mg/litre. Body weight of cows and calves was not influenced by CuON.
