Nutrition and hygiene throughout the entire lactation period
Today the many objectives for dairy cows, which simultaneously lead to several actions to improve herd results, require precision.
Management of dairy cows
Today the many objectives for dairy cows, which simultaneously lead to several actions to improve herd results, require precision. A dairy cow's career is prepared from its very early days. The growth of young cows, managed by control of nutrition and also by good health conditions, is indispensable. A well-managed first calving age is essential to increase the quantity of milk produced per day during the animal's life. Peri-partum management, preparation for calving up to the first weeks of lactation all influence peak lactation and persistence. Return to reproduction in good conditions will have an important impact on future lactation.
The key points for success
To meet these challenges successfully being professional in the various fields is essential, whether in nutrition, mineralisation or the management of health risks. Management of the latter involves paying attention to the maintenance and disinfection of buildings, and also paying attention daily to udder care. The overall performance of the milk production unit involves the success of each stage, whether it is the management of forage quality or products and efficiency, particularly dietary, to make the best use of the forage produced on the farm.
