Are Your Beef Cows Short on Vitamin A?Wed, 11 Jan 2012 05:52:14 CST
The after-effects of the historic drought of this past year could lead to beef calving issues in the weeks ahead. A Kansas State University veterinarian is concerned that too many spring-calving cows and heifers may be short on vitamin A, and that a management response may be imperative.
Dr. Larry Hollis says vitamin A deficiency may be an issue in the cow herd because of the extended time that cattle have not been able to have adequate green pasture heading into calving time.
Dr. Hollis is our guest on today's Beef Buzz- talking about the problem and the need for producers to offer a supplement that includes Vitamin A for their cow herds.
