Abstract

The detrimental effects that subclinical hypocalcemia has on postpartum performance, and the lack of a cow-side diagnostic tool, drives researchers to focus on designing preventive management strategies. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the effect of prophylactic supplementation with oral calcium boluses after calving on productive and reproductive outcomes.
