Mineral disorders in dairy cattle typically occur soon after calving and are often specifically related to nutritional management during the late dry period. The incidence of hypocalcemia, hypophosphatemia, and hypomagnesemia can be minimized by proper diet formulation and good overall nutritional management in the dry period. The addition of anions to the diet during the late dry period may be of particular benefit for preventing hypocalcemia; however, supplementation with anions will reduce dry matter intake if feeding management is not excellent.
