Feeds and feeding strategies become more and more important as the genetic quality of cows improves.
A good feeding regime is the foundation for profitable dairy farming. Feeds are also the largest cost in the dairy business. The balance between the benefits and the costs of high quality feedstuff makes feeding a challenge for the dairy farmer. With this book, we would like to share some of our knowledge in this field, with the staff of DeLaval, as well as with our customers around the world.
In spite of all the available research and results from experiments, the complexity of the cow’s digestion system gives dairy feeding more the character of an art than an exact science.
