Sub acute ruminal acidosis and its effects on production

Abstract

Sub acute ruminal acidosis (SARA) or subclinical rumen acidosis is an economically important and common condition seen in well managed dairy cattle herd as a consequence of feeding high grain and low fibre diet resulting in subsequent ruminal fermentation disorders and other changes which adversely affects production performance and finally economy of cattle rearing. Diagnosis of the condition is a tedious task as the clinical changes will be expressed only at an irreversible stage. Proper management of the postpartum cattle along with adequate feeding practices will help in prevention of the condition and improving economy of the farm.
