Hypomagnesaemia (grass tetany) of ruminants probably does not command significant attention and concern in the United States as an animal disorder at the present time. Extensive research has been conducted in Europe, especially in the Netherlands, where grass tetany has been a severe problem for many years. However, animal losses from hypomagnesaemia and research programs oriented directly at the problem have not received a similar level of high priority in the United States.
