A cow’s nutrition requirements change throughout the course of her life. Growing heifers do not require the same ration of nutrients as an adult lactating cow. You can adapt the diet to the physiological stage - for lactating or dry cows, heifers, calves - with Vitalac’s feed, minerals and nutritional products.
It is important to prepare rations that are specifically suited to the different stages of a dairy cow’s life. From the dry period to the restart of lactation to calving, each stage requires careful preparation and a re-evaluation of the nutrient intake. Dairy cattle should consume enough forage material to meet their nutrition requirements. Adding various supplements and additives to the feed can ensure the health and productivity of dairy cattle. The ration evolves during the life of the dairy cow and it is necessary to plan a specific feed plan with a protein, energy and cereal content which will vary according to the objectives or difficulties.
A cow with a loss of appetite, lameness or mastitis? Stressed animal as a result of weaning? Vitalac has solutions for all these difficulties.
