Cow Nutrition

Cow Nutrition

Feeding dairy cows an appropriate diet has many animal health benefits:

  • Improving milk production.
  • Better transition feeding has resulted in prevention of milk fever and conditions associated with metabolic disease.
  • Managing condition score loss pre and post calving has a positive impact on reproductive performance.
  • Balancing the diet with appropriate additives avoids deficiencies and looks after digestion
  • Getting the right mix of fibre, energy and protein increases efficiency of feed conversion and improves the bottom line.

Our team at The Vet Group can give sound advice in all these aspects of nutrition as well as crop feeding, managing acidosis, transition diets and lactation feeding. We can prepare scripts for rumen modifiers where appropriate and analyse diets with software programs.
