Alimentary prophylaxis of puerperal hypocalcemia (and of Downer cow) in the milking cow

Alimentary prophylaxis of puerperal hypocalcemia (and of Downer cow) in the milking cow

Atti della Societa Italiana di Buiatria 30: 123-138

A gentle, physiological and targeted method of intervention to prevent puerperal collapse is discussed. The method consists of appropriate management of the herd and of single cows before and after calving. Only a few cows should reach calving with a body condition score above 3.0-3.5. This can be achieved by feeding milking cows with a low-energy diet (not above 0.9 feed units for lactation (UFL)/kg DM). Two months before calving cows should have healthy digestive capabilities.
