While they may appear clinically healthy to the naked eye, regular monitoring of performance indicators would give an early warning that action and investigation may be appropriate. Ideally farmers should be scheduling regular monitoring of trace element blood status into their herd health plan in late pregnancy (approximately 3 months pre-calving). This would allow them to take action while disease is sub-clinical and before…
