Magnesium (Mg) is an essential mineral for all cattle, especially lactating cows and as such is routinely administered as a feed supplement. A diet low in Mg can have serious implications on performance and ultimately lead to hypomagnesemic tetany and death in ruminants. The aim of this study was to investigate the physiological response to Mg supplementation in lactating dairy cows.
