The impact of your feeding decisions
While it is important to provide optimum nutrition to your herd for growth, pregnancy and milk production, it can be tempting to cut corners and feed less to your herd.
When fodder supplies are limited, it is better to fully feed less animals than feed a larger herd less feed.
Reducing feed to young stock will cost much more in the long run. Compromising on dry cow feeding will strip condition off these cows and will result on more empty cows after breeding.
