Previous to Richard working with us we were struggling to get above 30/31 litres. Richard came in looked at the robot settings, the cow’s environment and nutrition. We saw an immediate response and an uplift in milk. We went from 31- 36 litres in very little time and it was down to Richard getting the diet right.
Feeding the dairy cow - yeasts
The dairy cow diet requires yeasts to maintain a healthy rumen, critical in delivering milk yield and overall cow performance. With independent research and testing, our team will help select proven live yeasts. It’s important to ensure that the product delivers the maximum number of live yeast cells to the digestive track of the animal.
If you herd suffers from conditions such as acidosis, yeasts can be used to help balance the rumen pH.
Triggers of acidosis may include:
- High levels of fermentable carbohydrates
- Finely chopped forages
- Poorly fermented forages
- Low levels of structural fibre
- High concentrate use
- Spring grass
