Calcium is an important component of milk and it’s a material used in the development of bones and teeth, if older cows are calcium deficient, they will draw calcium from the bones in order to maintain the same calcium level in their milk.
It is of critically importance in the growth of young stock. As a deficiency can lead to poor growth rates of the bones and heifers will fail to mineralise.
Calcium is a chemical messenger and therefore is a critical component in transmitting nervous tissue impulses, muscle contraction and blood clotting.
It is involved in enzymatic processes such as hardening of the hoof horn.
