Bovine biochemistry panel designed for herd level investigation and monitoring of management and/or nutritional driven risk factors for disease or suboptimal performance in lactating dairy cattle. This test is designed to be done on groups of 10-15 clinically normal heifers or cows >14 days in milk. Groups of lactating heifers should be evaluated separately from groups of lactating cows. The Ruminant Chemistry Profile, Ruminant Macromineral and Electrolyte panel, Ruminant Energy Profile, or Ruminant Liver Profile should be utilized on clinically abnormal individual animals. A reference mean spreadsheet will not be generated for group submissions with <10 samples.
Tests include Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Albumin, BUN, Glucose, Cholesterol, Sodium, Potassium, Chloride, Beta-hydroxybutyrate
