Abstract Sulfur-related polioencephalomalacia is frequently associated with a high total sulfur intake by ruminants. The onset of clinical signs coincides with excessive ruminal sulfide production. Measurement of ruminal gas cap hydrogen sulfide makes it possible to identify cattle with potentially hazardous total sulfur intake. Evaluation of all potential sulfur sources is necessary to estimate total dietary sulfur concentration, which can lead to prevention strategies.
