Current NRC P recommendations for lactating dairy cows range from to % of the diet DM, depending particularly on milk production. A number of studies have shown no production or reproduction benefits from feeding P above NRC dietary recommendations, and that most excess P is excreted in feces. Cows in the far-off dry pen should be monitored on a regular basis for body condition, signs of making up (preparing for calving and lactation), and cow comfort. Many dairy producers like to feed push-out or weigh-back (the feed picked over and left uneaten) from the lactating cows to the far-off dry cows.
Feeding negative DCAD diets the last 3 weeks before calving can increase blood calcium. Research has shown that cows fed negative DCAD diets eat more feed in early lactation (Figure 1). University of Idaho research found that cows fed a negative DCAD diet took in less feed prepartum, but more postpartum than cows fed a positive DCAD diets. Feeding Wet Distillers Grains to Dairy Cattle 1 Dr. David J. Schingoethe Dairy Science Department South Dakota State University The feeding of distillers grains to dairy is nothing new; such products have been fed cattle for more than a century. The research article by Loosli et al. () referenced an
Primary sources: barley, corn, oats, wheat, molasses, beet pulp, and soyhulls. Most dairy farmers grow their own barley, corn, oats, and wheat and will often process these grains to be fed to the cows. Molasses, beet pulp and soyhulls are purchased from a feed mill. But feeds such as alfalfa hay, beet pulp, citrus, 41% cottonseed, fish meal, 44% soybean meal and tallow were considered over-priced. Farmers need to pay attention to these relative price changes to ensure their ration costs remain competitive, says Weiss.

It is just as important for a dairy cow to eat a balanced diet to live a long, healthy life. The basic difference between humans and cows is how our stomachs function. Humans are monogastrics, meaning we have a single stomach digestive system. Pigs, cats and dogs are also monogastrics.
Wet mixtures of silage/concentrates. Many dairy farmers use silage and other wet materials in diets for their dairy cows. In northern Scotland, grass silage, wet distillers' grains and roots with a high water content (e.g. swedes and turnips) often form the basis of winter feeding.

Feeding less than the optimum amount of any mineral or vitamin can result in an increased incidence of disease and reproductive problems, lower milk production, and decreased growth rate in heifers.

Proper Nutrition and Management of Transition Dairy Cows The transition period is extremely important in determining future health, milk production, and reproductive success of the dairy cow.
This period is from three weeks before calving to three weeks after calving as the cow transitions from the dry period to the milking herd.

Feeding. the Dairy Cow. by Siobhan Kavanagh Introduction A dairy cow must eat a balanced diet with enough energy, protein, fibre, water, minerals and vitamins to cover her own maintenance and growth as well as milk production and the needs of a growing foetus.
Quantity and quality are Size: KB. BDG attractive in diets for lactating dairy cows. BDG are commonly used by the feed industry as a component of protein supplements for dairy cattle.
The formula feed industry generally limits BDG to less than 50% of protein supplements and 25% of complete feeds for dairy cattle. BDG are highly palatable. Upper feeding limits on BDG.

Feeding dairy cattle the proper diet is essential for raising healthy, high producing dairy cattle. In this booklet, you will learn what makes the dairy cow’s digestive system unique. You will also be introduced to concepts of formulating diets to maintain the health and productivity of your dairy cows.
This workbook was written with a step File Size: 1MB. For effective use of TMR diets, cows must be separated into feeding groups: minimally, a lactating and a nonlactating group, and optimally, two or more lactating cow groups and two dry cow groups. One dry cow group should comprise those cows in the first 4–6 wk of the dry period, and the other those in the 2–4 wk before calving.
For parts 1 to 3 see Abst.Vol. Thirteen non-pregnant, non-lactating cows were used in Latin square trial with 13 treatments and 4 replications; 4 diets had 5, 20, 35 or 50% roughage and each was given to supplyor times the calculated maintenance energy requirements suggested by ARC (Abst.Vol.

The text will be most useful to both researchers and practitioners of animal related disciplines, such as agriculture and veterinary medicine. ADVERTISEMENTS: Feeding Schedule: Dry Cows and Recent Calvers (Rodricks, ) 1.
For non-pregnant Dry Cows: It is enough to give them maintenance ration of 2 ½ kg. per day and about 15 to 20 kg of green fodder. ADVERTISEMENTS: 2.
Dry Cows that are Pregnant: May be fed 3 ½ kg. Of concentrate feed plus [ ]. Feeding dairy cows and youngstock is one of the highest costs of milk production. This is accepted because to get cows that milk well and remain healthy, they have to be fed properly.
However, it is not uncommon for there to be as much as 2ppl difference in feed costs between two similar yielding systems, a figure that will make a significant.
Supplements. Lactation Complete Feeds. Lactation Completes are quality, energy regulated (fat and carbohydrate) pelleted dairy feeds formulated to complement homegrown forages. Lactation Completes are fortified with the needed macro minerals, trace minerals and vitamins to help cows achieve their production potential.
Formulating dairy cow rations The basis of a cow’s diet should be high-quality forage. Feed cows one ounce plus 1 ounce for every 25 pounds of milk. Salt should be included in the grain mix at 1 percent.
Calcium: more than grams/day or to 1 percent of ration dry matter. One percent with added fat in the diet.Excess dietary P fed to dairy cattle is excreted in the feces.
Feeding excess dietary P costs $8 to $15 per cow annually (Gamroth et al., ). W milking cows in Utah, this costs Utah dairy producers up to $ million per year (National Agricultural Statistics, ). Effect of Phosphorus on Milk Production,File Size: KB.2. Cottonseed.
