The latest Calf Note is now available at Calf Notes.com

In Calf Note #170, Dr. Jim Quigley discusses the idea that rumen pH during the development period often suggests subacute rumen acidosis.

In the Calf Note, Quigley writes “In our quest to develop the rumen, we may be inducing subacute rumen acidosis, or SARA, in these calves. This Calf Note provides some evidence that SARA exists in calves. Future Calf Notes will explore whether this is a problem and implications to the animal.”
