Managing for more milk through dry cow management
Dry cow management is one of the most overlooked phases in many dairy operations, but it may have a significant impact on your bottom line. Drying off signals the beginning of the next lactation, not the end of the previous one. Land O'Lakes Feed Dry Cow feeding programs give you a complete nutrition package that can be fed all through the dry period.
Six solutions for dry cow feeding programs with complete nutrition
Because Land O'Lakes Feed dry cow products are fully fortified with trace minerals and vitamins, you get a nutrition package that can be fed all through the dry period. Recommended feeding rates provide high levels of vitamin A (100,000 I.U.), vitamin E (1,000 I.U.), and selenium (3 to 4 milligrams) to help support uterine involution and immune response.
