Brief discussion of 3 common diseases in dairy cattle.
What Action Can Be Taken During Pre-calving To Reduce The Milk Fever In Dairy Cattle?
Good to see that you have understood the concept and need for the prevention of “milk fever” in dairy animals, prior to calving. Feeding regularly calcium through out life-time is the simplest and cheapest solution. Though the slaked lime water prepared from limestone is inorganic and hence its bio-availability is low, it is cheap and locally available and daily feeding of 20 - 50 ml of slaked lime water can do wonders. If the animal is a high yielder (above 15 litres per day) post calving, then that animal should be primed for calcium with intravenous injection four times at 15 days interval prior to calving, by a veterinarian. Please note that calcium intravenous injection is to be administered under the supervision of a veterinarian only, for it can result in heart seizure.

What Is The Difference Between Dairy Farming And Cattle Ranching?
Dairy farming is an operation that devotes itself to the production of milk products. The stock that is bred for the production of milk in our part of the country is the Holstein. Dairy farms here in Montana are a declining breed as the move to huge corporate farms continues to dominate the market. Cattle ranching on the other hand is alive and well and run much the same as it was a hundred years ago. The production of meat for the tables of the world is the object behind cattle ranching and the primary breeds are Hereford and Angus and are often cross bred as we do here on our ranch. Cattle ranchers normally sell their spring calves to feed lots in late fall, which after fattening sell that stock to slaughter houses. The most common question I am asked is if there is a difference between Angus beef and others. My answer is that how they are fattened makes more of a difference than breed. Grass fed are the leanest and of course tougher in texture than others. My brother will not allow the steer he is going to eat touch any type of grain. My preference is 30 days on barley before slaughter. The most common feed for fattening is corn and most likely what you are eating was fattened w

What Is The Best Way To Treat A Wound In The Udder For Dairy Cattle?
It obviously depends on the nature of the wound. *This examination should only be attempted by an experienced animal handler, as cows are big animals and they can move surprisingly fast, especially when irritated. (Really, seriously, just call a vet unless you like getting kicked and/or stepped on by a 1,200 lb bovine. This answer is meant for entertainment only.) Approach the cow and inspect the wound. The wound should be disinfected with something like betadine. It's important to scrub vigorously to get out the embedded dirt, followed by rinsing with clean water. Pick yourself up off the floor, brush the dirt off your chest, and re-approach the cow's hindquarters, making sure to be more cautious this time. Remember: cows kick, and they don't like cold water. Now that the wound is clean, examine it to ascertain the nature of the injury. If the teat itself is bruised, it's possible that she stepped on it. Some arnica or comfrey ointment will reduce swelling and ease the pain. (Available at progressive feed stores and health food stores everywhere.) If there's a jagged tear in the udder itself, then she might have gotten it caught on barbed wire. This requires stiches, and the vet i
A drop of blood is all that’s needed Editor’s note: This is the first of a six-part series on transition cow management that will run in 2015. When it comes to fresh cow health, an ounce of prevention can result in pounds more milk, fewer displaced abomasums (DAs) and less culling. All of it adds up to potentially thousands of dollars saved each year. And it all can be had with the use of a simple, easy-to-use blood test of cows in your fresh ...

Not to be confused with Ketoacidosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state in which some of the body's energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides energy. Ketosis is a result of metabolizing fat to provide energy. Ketosis is a nutritional process characterised by serum concentrations of ketone bodies over 0.5 mM, with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose. It ...
Ketosis Also known as: Acetonemia, Fat Cow Syndrome, Hypoglycemia and Pregnancy Toxemia. Primary ketosis, or acetonemia, is a metabolic disorder and is largely a disease that is influenced by management of dairy cows in early lactation. Ketosis is an important clinical and subclinical disease, as there are several metabolic disorders and diseases that commonly occur in the calving and the early lactation period that are linked to ketosis (includi ...

Managing disease can be a frustrating proposition. This Guide can help you identify which disease is damaging your cattle. Cause Ketosis is a metabolic disorder that occurs in cattle when energy demands (e.g. high milk production) exceed energy intake and result in a negative energy balance. Ketotic cows often have low blood glucose (blood sugar) concentrations. When large amounts of body fat are utilised as an energy source to support production ...
