Ketosis In Dairy Cows (acetoneamia)

What is Ketosis? Ketosis is essentially the cows response to a negative energy balance. In other words:Energy used > energy taken in (eaten) What is the cause: Ketosis can be divided into 2 categories:- 1. Primary ketosis - The cow is not obtaining the energy requirement that she needs from the diet that she is eating. 2. Secondary ketosis – A problem with the cow is stopping her from eating enough food to match her energy requirements e.g an LDA stops the cow eating but she still needs energy to move, produce milk etc. A more commonly seen problem in dairy cows these days is subclinical ketosis. This is generally seen in dairy herds as a group problem rather than a individual cow issue. Cows with subclinical ketosis don't show such strong bulling activity, don't come bulling as early, don't achieve their potential peak milk yield (and subsequently have significantly reduced lactationas yield) and are more prone to disease and conditions such as LDAs (left displaced abomasum. In short they take longer to get going and never achieve their potential in the lactation which costsyoutime and money. Subclinical ketosis often indicates a problemi the transition diet or management. What Continue reading >>

    had the vet out today with a 2nd calver,calved about 2wks with a case of ketosis,the vet went on to tell me about a bolus that they had only started to supply called kextone,he didn't know a lot about it because anyone that has used it hasn't had anything calved yet or long enough to know,what he did say on the down side was that it can blow up a big calf, the cost is £30 and you give it 4wks before calving,has anyone used such a thing,TIA

    It's actually a legal Monensin (Rumensin) bolus. My vet says they work very well. He has several farmers dosing every cow -though not to sure whether it's just for ketosis They cost about £30 and the cow gives an extra £60 worth of milk. Perhaps I'm just being cynical but no doubt they will find a "medical" reason to give it to beef cattle before long.

Not In Animal Health Industry

The NADIS data show that the number of cases of acetonaemia (or ketosis) increase significantly during the winter, and the number of cases continue to increase until turnout. So it is particularly important to look out for acetonaemia until at least a month after turn-out. Like most metabolic diseases it is important to remember that for every cow that shows clinical signs, there will be several more which are affected sub-clinically. What is acetonaemia? Acetonaemia occurs when the cow's energy intake does not match its requirement and the cow is unable to compensate and mobilises its body reserves too quickly. In the beef cow, this is most likely to occur in late pregnancy when the cow's appetite is at its lowest and the energy requirement of the growing calf near its peak. In the dairy cow, the mismatch between input and output usually occurs in the first few weeks of lactation, because the cow is not able to eat enough to match the energy lost in the milk. Clinical Signs 1) Reduced milk yield: Initially a moderate decline, eventually a sudden drop 2) Body condition and weight loss 3) Reduction in appetite (initially non-forage feeds) 4) Dull, stary coat 5) Firm, 'waxy' dung 6) Continue reading >>

Dry Cow Management For The Prevention Of Ketosis And Fatty Liver In Dairy Cows

Dramatic increases in energy requirements during late gestation and early lactation, superimposed on an animal with a profound drop in dry matter intake just before calving, make the dairy cow highly susceptible to ketosis and hepatic lipidosis. During the last 3 to 4 weeks postpartum, a diet higher in energy and protein concentration than required by current National Research Council recommendations should be fed so that adequate nutrient intake occurs within the limits of the reduced dry matter intake. Attention should be given to the environment of the cow, especially during the last 3 weeks prepartum, to avoid environmental stressors as much as possible. Continue reading >>

  • Why Do Cows Get Ketosis

    Proper dry cow nutrition focuses in large part on reducing the incidence of metabolic problems around calving time. Metabolic problems are caused primarily by nutrition. They usually require treatment by a veterinarian or producer. One metabolic problem often leads to others and the final result is lost milk, poor reproduction, and maybe even a lost cow. Milk Fever Milk fever, also known as parturient paresis, is low blood calcium. On average, 5- ...

    Subclinical, or chronic, ruminal acidosis in broad terms is a fermentative disorder in the rumen. Acidosis can occur when cows are not properly transitioned onto high/sugar starch feeds, commonly brassicas or fodder beet. Or when large quantities of high starch/sugar feeds are included in the diet (e.g. greater than 6 kilograms of barley). The rumen in the cow is a huge “fermentation vat” where rumen microbes ferment feed, ready for further d ...
