Abstract

THE butterfat production of lactating dairy cows in the west of Scotland has been shown to be increased by the single addition of copper sulphate to the diet one to six days after feeding the supplement1. The response to the feeding of foodstuffs rich in trace elements (including copper) should show a similar effect on the fat production of the cows in this area. Such a foodstuff is available as seaweed meal.
