Spring in the Bluegrass is a great time of greening and warming, but it’s also a time when livestock producers need to watch out for grass tetany, also called spring tetany or grass staggers.
Some people also refer to it as wheat pasture poisoning, winter tetany or lactation tetany.
Regardless, it?s a condition caused by an abnormally low level of magnesium in the blood.
Maintenance of normal blood magnesium is completely dependent on absorption of magnesium from the diet.
