Calcium deficiency due to lack of minerals "s intensive livestock feedJDg practices are resulting in cases of olchini deficiency the animal? do not re- ceive adequate mineral supple- mental en. Dr. Harries rf ihe Lcih- !iridge provincial veterinary di- .ifflwsLJc laboratory', reports 1 hat the calcium deficiencies have been observed in rapidly growing livestock, particularly lambs and pigs which are fed cereal grains without mineral supplements. The cereals do not com a in calcium, whereas roughage does. Calcium is import- ant because in with phosphorous, il form? ihe greater part of bones. it is deficient the bones are weak sod brake easily. It is also es- sential for muscle function. Milk fever in a newly calved cow, although not brought about by a dietary Jeficinency. is caus- ed by a sudden drop in the cal- cium level in the blood. Loss of for Ihe cow being unable lo Because rsnlc besn in- tensively fed for miiny years, calcium dericie-ncy not usual- ly a problem here. However, raising sliec-p on cereal grains is a relatively new practice by comparison. A number of ex- aminations carried out at the Lethbridge on feed- Jot lambs have shown caJcium dcficienceis due to inadequate level? of minerals in feed. Dr. Harries says. He p-jiiUi out that v.-licn lamb? are under stress, such as during vaccination, they sustain a sudden drop in ihe calcium level in ihe Wood, which aifecU their muscles. The lambs be- come teihargic and lack ibe slrergth to rise, much like the cow with milk fever. Post mor- tem eJcaminaUonf showed that all the bones were soft and rib fractures were frequent.

Sudden deaths among the larger pigs broken backbones are the usual findings. Post mor- tem examinations have shown all the boDes to be soft and fragile. Intensively raised poullry rarely suffer from calcium de- ficiency, unless a mistake was made when the feed was nrs- ed; but small flocks of grow- ing chickens fed only cereal grains may become in calcium. The birds arc reluc- tant to move and their bones are soft. Because there are no definite symptoms, ihe owner often thinks the floc-k is suffer- ing from some infectious dis- ease. In laying binis the prob- lem is readily cwected by the soft-shelled eggs. Dr. Harns ?sys D is essential for the proper of calcium by tve- st ock.
