Watch for grass tetany during this time of year. Grass tetany is due to an abnormally low level of magnesium in the cow's body.

Once cool season forages begin to reemerge in your grazing pastures, grass tetany can become a potential problem.

This disease normally occurs in Arkansas in the months of February, March, and April.

See this University of Arkansas Extension Fact Sheet from Dr. Jeremy Powell for more information on clinical signs and treatment for grass tetany.
