An understanding of the aetiology of urolithiasis has virtually eliminated the condition in large commercial beef feedlots. However, the condition still occurs in opportunity feedlots and in lamb feedlots. The reasons for this can lie in prior supplementation history and the mineral concentrations of stock water in extensive grazing systems prior to introduction to concentrate feeding, inappropriate diet formulations, the feeding of concentrates separate to roughage, and possibly in extended feeding periods associated with inadequate dietary nutrient density and poor feeding practices
