Abstract

THE occurrence of a suspected copper deficiency in cattle in Aberdeenshire was recently reported1, the evidence being based on the low copper content of the pastures and on the similarity of the symptoms to those of ‘peat scours’ in New Zealand described by Cunningham2. No blood copper data were given to correlate the suspected low copper status of the cattle with the low copper value of the pasture.
