Acidosis is generally caused by feeding diets high in rapidly fermentable carbohydrates and low levels of physical fibre. SARA can also affect cows out on lush grass high in fatty acids and low in fibre. This can significantly reduce milk solids, affect fertility and hoof health, and more.
SARA can be combatted by providing a source of fibre to your herd and also by feeding a Rumen Buffer. Our Rumen Buffer provides short, intermediate, and long term forms of buffering to ensure your herd has full rumen function. Better rumination makes for a happier cow with a more settled digestive system, and greater productivity and fertility.
