'Flying scapulas', a post turnout myopathy in cattle

, : 'Flying scapulas', a post turnout myopathy in cattle. Veterinary Record 135(18): 433-434

An outbreak of myopathy, which was characterised by flying scapulas and which affected a group of 73 in-calf Friesian heifers (33 approximately 2 years old and 42 approximately 18 months old) shortly after turnout in spring 1993 is reported. The younger heifers became very excitable when turned out and within 5 days one of the heifers was recumbent and several others were reluctant to get up. Affected heifers were dull, constipated and showed hindlimb weakness.
