Dairy Global: Easy and effective transition management

"In transitioning cows the large amount of calcium they use to produce colostrum leaves them prone to calcium deficiency and milk fever which can bring on a whole host of other metabolic deficiencies. X-Zelit from Vilofoss can be used to eradicate clinical and subclinical milk fever," are the words from Dairy Global, online magazine.

There is generally an agreement that the period just around calving and start-up in lactation must be in focus to ensure the best possible start-up. But there is also a lot of opinions and options for how to ensure this in the best possible way. At the moment  the discussion is whether to use acidification (anionic salts) or X-Zelit. Dairy Global has written about the widespread succes of X-Zelit.
