Many metabolic changes occur as the dairy cow approaches parturition. Dairy cattle experience a negative energy balance because of a reduction in dry matter intake (DMI) and the increasing nutrient demand by the growing fetus.1 As DMI is decreases, Calcium intake is also significantly reduced and the cow can become calcium deficient. Cows with Calcium deficiency have a greater chance to develop ketosis, milk fever, metritis, mastitis, displaced abomasum, and social issues.
