Grass Tetany Alert

A combination of various environmental factors this season tend to be aligning and can possibly create the perfect storm for Grass Tetany (hypomagnesemia) in cattle over the next few months. These predisposing factors include:

  • High K and low Mg in young pasture after a dry spell
  • Prolonged periods of cold, wet and windy conditions
  • Lactating, older and better conditioned cows

Although Grass Tetany is generally isolated to lactating cows, Mg deficiency can have a significant impact on liveweight gain in other classes of cattle grazing green pastures and crops.
