Abstract: Sub-acute ruminal acidosis (SARA) is a significant production digestive disorder of dairy cattle. This study conducted a point prevalence study of rumen health status in well-organized dairy herds in pollachi district of Tamil nadu. The study assessed rumen fluid, animal health status, milk production data and biological parameters. A total of sixty cows in early to mid-lactation were sampled from three farms. 8.33 percent of dairy cows managed under semi-intensive system were tested positive for SARA. The study showed that low rumen pH is prevalent in well managed dairy herds even under semi intensive system of management.
