Sudden Drop in Milk Production
Conditions that may have a sudden effect on milk production include:
- Rumen acidosis
- Displaced abomasum (sometimes also called LDA, RDA or twisted stomach)
- Severe mastitis
- Bovine Johne's Disease
- Facial eczema (Gippsland and Bega Valley)
Diseases that cause sudden death may also cause sudden drops in milk production in the early stages.
