Vitamins and health
 
Dr. Essi Evans
 
 

The ruminant animal relies upon microbial synthesis for a supply of water-soluble vitamins and choline. Irregular feed intake patterns typically seen in dairy cows close to calving may contribute to vitamin inadequacies, resulting in a disruption of normal microbial vitamin production.

 

There is an increasing amount of research that suggests that the supply of vitamins from microbial sources may not be adequate to meet requirements for nutrients such as choline and some of the B vitamins.

 

The current study was conducted to evaluate the effects of supplementation of a rumen-protected vitamin and choline blend to dairy cows during the transition period upon metabolic and postpartum health parameters.
