Copper & Cow Health Farming Note

Copper deficiency is a common problem where dietary intake is insufficient to meet the cow's metabolic requirement or where mineral antagonists levels are in excess. Where copper deficiency or toxicity is suspected, forages should be analysed and copper levels restored appropriately.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Copper metabolisation
  • Effects of deficiency and toxicity
  • Analysing and improving copper levels

This Farming Note follows the 'Copper & Molybdenum in Soils and Forage' note.

Issued October 2009.
