    Think it should stay just below my 360 threshold. But without rapid action it wouldn't. Also I'm not too sure at what point a milk fever becomes official. To bolus a cow at calving to prevent her getting milk fever is fine. To give a bottle under the skin to a cow your concerned about is fine...

    It appears the definition of dirty water has changed under ffrw. Nvz definition is source based.
