A new Calf Note, No. 172, has been posted on Calf

The article addresses the effect of subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA) on digestibility in calves.

“Data from a couple of studies showed that calves often experience rumen pH less than 5.8 (a typical definition for SARA in lactating dairy cows),” says Calf Notes author Dr. Jim Quigley. “If it is true that many calves experience SARA, what are the effects on digestion and efficiency of production?"

To answer that, Quigley summarizes some of the recent research regarding SARA and its effects on digestion and health.
