The objective of this study was to evaluate eight cowside ketone tests when used with milk for detection of subclinical ketosis. A total of 469 dairy cows in the first week of lactation were studied. Twelve percent of these cows had subclinical ketosis, defined as >1400 micromol of beta-hydroxybutyrate/L of blood serum. The Pink test liquid and the Ketolac test strip were highly sensitive for subclinical ketosis when used with milk. The Uriscan and Rapignost test strips were poorly sensitive… CONTINUE READING
