Abstract

In previous studies in the lowland areas of Santa Fe Province, Argentina, it was demonstrated that beef cattle showing leg stiffness, walking difficulties and spontaneous bone fractures were affected with severe conditioned copper deficiency. This was corrected by parenteral copper suplementation (Gonzalez Pondal et al, 1975).
