Preventing Cow Calving problems
Preventing Milk Production Problems
Ensuring the nutritional needs of the high-yielding cow are met will ensure optimum production and prevent milk production and quality problems. An adequately nourished cow will be healthy and capable of managing the stresses associated with high milk production.
Insufficient energy in the milking cow’s diet can result in low milk protein, low milk yields, poor fertility and poor immunity. This will make the cow susceptible to disease and metabolic disorders including Ketosis, Mastitis, Lameness and loss of body condition.
Regularly assess the mineral status of your grazed grass so you know what minerals to supplement, and the correct levels to supplement, to meet the needs of your herd. Decreasing fat supplements, increasing fibre content and optimising protein in their diet will also aid production. Adjusting your nutrition program for the different stages of the reproductive cycle and seasons will also ensure optimal outputs.
The TERRA NutriTECH system helps deliver precisely what the herd needs each day. Key Minerals can be dosed separately, and all systems dose accurately as they monitor water consumption patterns. This precision increases animal health and helps farms become more profitable, reduce waste, lower emissions, and reduce labour.
