Each e-learning tutorial finishes with a quiz. Learn what's in a feed, what a cow needs in her diet, about a cow's digestive system, and pasture management for growth and quality.
What's in a feed
What is in each common dairy cow feed and what does this means on farm? Learn the on-farm implications of differing levels of energy, protein, soluble sugars and starches and fibre.
A cow's digestive system
Look at the different compartments and organs within the cow's digestive system and how they work to digest feed.
What a cow needs from her diet
Learn the key nutrients a cow needs for production and reproduction and why she needs these. Find out how to calculate a cow’s water needs and flow rates on farm.
Pasture management for growth and quantity
Look at how pasture grows and the key pasture management targets such as leaf stage, round length and pre- and post-grazing masses.
