Abstract

Lameness is one of the most important and economically demanding diseases in livestock, manifested with change in locomotion and associated with not only a welfare problem, but also affect production and profit. Nutrition as one of the important predisposing factor causing lameness in animals. The review focus on incidence and dietary management of lameness in livestock. Excessive grain and/or concentrate feeding and high ratio of non-fibre carbohydrate to neutral detergent fibre affects the gastro-intestinal functioning result in lameness. Besides, high dietary protein content, vitamin and mineral deficiencies/imbalances and some anti-nutritional factors are other dietary causes leading to lameness in animals. Feeding management is perhaps the single most effective means to reduce the occurrence of lameness in animals as a sustainable strategy.
