Milk Production

Milk production per lactation and in the total lifespan of a dairy cow is the most decisive factor for overall farm profitability. Lactation depends on many different factors.

Raising high yielding cows begins with calf rearing best practices that prioritize the development of rumen capacity and the formation of papillae.

Also essential for high milk yields are good quality feed. Silage added to the diet must be of excellent quality.

Mycotoxins occur frequently and sometimes without showing any clinical signs. This underscores the need to implement mycotoxin risk management strategies.

Modern dairy cows have superior milk yield potential. However, inadequate feed intake limits this genetic potential.

Milk production depends on rumen health. Improving ruminal flora and digestion improves milk yield.
