Ruminal Acidosis in Feedlot: From Aetiology to Prevention

Article, Review English OPEN
Joaquín Hernández; José Luis Benedito; Angel Abuelo; Cristina Castillo;

Acute ruminal acidosis is a metabolic status defined by decreased blood pH and bicarbonate, caused by overproduction of ruminal D-lactate. It will appear when animals ingest excessive amount of nonstructural carbohydrates with low neutral detergent fiber. Animals will s... View more
