Bloat in Cattle

Gases such as methane and carbon dioxide are produced as part of the normal process of digestion in cattle. These gases are usually discharged by eructation (belching). If the animal is unable to remove the excess gas it builds up causing bloat, a distention of the ruminoreticulum.

This dairy insight explores the causes of bloat, and how it can be treated - and first and foremost, how to prevent bloat from being an issue for your stock.
