Displaced Abomasum Farming Note

A displaced abomasum or "twisted stomach" is associated with freshly calved cows or as a secondary event when another condition has caused reduced feed intake. Displaced abomasums usually require expensive veterinary attention and also result in lost milk production, a longer period before conception and reduced herd life. This can seriously reduce farm profitability, particularly if the incidence of DAs is high.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Prevalence of displaced abomasum in UK herds
  • Clinical signs of the condition
  • Causes
  • Preventing a displaced abomasum occuring

Issued June 2011.
