Abstract

THIS article, the second of two discussing common practices used to monitor high‐producing dairy herds in North America, describes how the general principles of herd‐level diagnoses reviewed in Part 1 (In Practice, October 2006, volume 28, pp 510–515) may be applied to three major metabolic and nutritional disease syndromes frequently affecting these animals ‐ namely ketosis, subacute ruminal acidosis and milk fever. In each case, it describes how to make a herd diagnosis and outlines the prevention measures that can be implemented.
