Principles of nutrition
When feed management decisions are being made, it is important to consider the composition and characteristics of different feeds, and the implications of including them into the farm system.
The FeedRight programme is designed to help dairy farmers make profitable and sustainable feed management and nutrition decisions on-farm.
Appropriate management is vital to ensure a successful transition from late pregnancy to early lactation.
Balancing pasture quality and cow demand during early lactation requires knowledge, skills, and determination. Done right, it can set you up for a successful season ahead.
A successful mid-late lactation will provide profitable milk production this season, while ensuring you have set yourself up for the season ahead.
A successful dry period will ensure all cows achieve body condition score targets pre-calving and will help to get your cows off to a good start to their lactation.
