Re: Diabetes in cattle

Is that in older cows and bulls?  You wouldn`t think diabetes could get percolating in animals under 16mo of age.  Maybe feeding "yellow cake" in a tub grinder and sweetcorn silage year after year in a cow ration would bring it on?

Re: Diabetes in cattle

New Mexico State U has done some work on it.   

 

Seems calcium propionate is the supp that helps nm range cows.

 

Seems to be a seasonal diabetes that effects cows on hard dry low protein range in nm.
