Grass tunny is a metabolic disorder of ruminant animals that results from a deficiency of
available Mg in the diet. The etiology of tetany is complicated by the many soil, plant, and animal
factors that influence Mg availability to plants and in tuns to animals. This review will highlight
some of these factors and provide management information which will minimize the impact of this
disorder. Only the most recent and pertinent literature citations are included. A more detailed
bibliographic list is available from the authors.
