  • Selenium deficiency may cause nutritional muscular dystrophy in foals. Special emphasis should therefore be placed on the selenium supply of brood mares.
  • In cattle it causes mastitis, puerperal disorder and abortion, in young cattle it causes growth disorder and paralytic myoglobinuria. It leads to calf losses due to muscular dystrophy or white muscle disease.
