Left displaced abomasum (LDA) is generally a disorder of post-partum cows. The prevalence of LDA varies widely among the affected farms. If LDA occurs after calving (within first week of lactation), this condition show to problems with dry cow management. But, if LDA occur later on it may be due to dry cow and/or fresh cow management. This review considers various risk factors, metabolic indicators, and prevention of displacement of the abomasum in cattle.
