Dr. Tom Overton from Cornell University will present the webinar “New Dietary Approaches to Manage Hypocalcemia in Transition Cows”, on April 12. This webinar will provide the efficiency of a calcium binder (X-Zelit®) for preventing hypocalcemia, tested by Cornell University in the United States.

Feeding low-level calcium in the prepartum diet has shown to be effective in improving the calcium level at calving. However, as this is difficult to obtain using the commonly used feeds, binding the dietary calcium using X-Zelit can mimic the low calcium approach. Preliminary results from the trial were presented at the annual Cornell Nutrition Conference 2017.
