Subclinical Hypocalcemia, or Milk Fever, in Dairy Cows — Why All the Fuss?

With the initiation of lactation and continued milk production by the dairy cow, tremendous adaptations occur to support the increased need for nutrients to support milk synthesis. Besides the increased need for energy and amino acids for colostrum and afterward for milk synthesis, the requirement for calcium increases two- to three-fold over those required by the dairy cow before calving.
