A quite essential trace element in the nourishment of animals is zinc. Abnormal proportions of individual mineral elements in fodder, and the excess of lime in particular, have led, if indirectly, to the relative shortage of zinc. Blood samples were taken from five sows, three of them imported sows whose piglets had come down with parakeratosis, and two domestic sows whose unweaned piglets showed no pathological symptoms at the time, for purposes of making a zinc determination, and in order to corroborate the clinical diagnosis that pointed to parakeratosis.
