Sorry I should have explained more. She kidded a couple of months ago with the same issues as the year before. Shes fed alfalfa pellets, beet pulp, 18% sweet feed, tums, yet she always gets calcium deficient in the last few weeks and afterward. She always gets dried up before she is rebred.She gets warm molasses right after kidding and almost free choice sweet feed.
