Case Report of Polioencephalomalacia due to high concentrate intake, high sulfur intake and fungi and bacterial contamination feed in dairy cattle

Abstract

Polioencephalomalacia (PEM) is seen sporadically or as a herd outbreak. Cattle on high concentrate diets are higher risk. In this case report, PEM occurred due to high concentrate intake, and contamination concentrate to some bacterial and fungus producer sulfur that rotationally grazed dairy cattle consuming concentrate containing 1.08% sulfate. Clinical signs, autopsy findings, examination of diet concentrate and high concentrate sulfate levels confirmed the diagnosis of sulfur-induced Polioencephalomalacia. The incidence of disease reduced when the herd was switched to a low intake of concentrate level. Keyword: Polioencephalomalacia, concentrate, sulfur, dairy
