Mycotoxins

Modern dairy cows have a much faster passage rate of feed through the rumen, leaving less time for microorganisms to detoxify. This, combined with higher feed intake, probably means that our cows’ natural defences cannot protect them as well as often assumed.

Calf Rearing

Rearing management is often underestimated. However, it is widely recognized that calf performance today has a great impact on future milk yield. This applies to (goat) kids and lambs too.

Feed Efficiency

Feed efficiency is a key parameter for profitability. With high feed prices, it pays to increase feed efficiency by improving feed digestibility. Better feed digestibility means higher milk production without a negative energy balance (NEB).
