Michelle Arnold, UK Extension Veterinarian encourages cow/calf producers to start feeding high magnesium mineral. Grass will be greening up soon so it is best to be proactive to prevent grass tetany.
Grass tetany is caused by abnormally low magnesium in the bloodstream of cattle. Pregnant cows should be fed supplemental magnesium from 60 days before calving until the beginning of the breeding season to help prevent it.
