Abstract

Dynamics of subclinical hypocalcemia (SCH) in early lactation dairy cows have been associated with negative health outcomes and decreased production. Our objective was to investigate the association of SCH dynamics with prepartum urine pH, periparturient activity and rumination time, and serum total Ca (tCa).
