DAIReXNET Formulating Diets for Groups of Lactating Cows Webinar

Formulating Diets for Groups of Lactating Cows 

Bill Weiss, The Ohio State University  

 February 26, 2015 

 12:00 PM Central Time 

Formulating accurate diets for lactating dairy cows requires users to input body weight, milk production, milk composition and perhaps other factors such as days in milk and parity. If you are only feeding one cow, those numbers are easy to get, but if you are formulating for a group of cows, what numbers should you use?

This webinar will discuss:

· Proper cow specification inputs for various nutrients

· Factors affecting those inputs

· Grouping criteria that result in more accurate diets

Top Ways to Tweak Dairy Nutrition Management to Improve Profitability: Part 2

Excellent dairy managers are always looking for and finding ways to improve the performance and profitability of their dairy herds. Often, the primary emphasis is placed on considering changes to the nutritional program for the milking herd as suggested by current research. In last month’s feature article, some of these potential management areas were explored. Although these areas are extremely important, tweaking the nutritional and management programs for heifers and dry cows is just as important, and sometimes more so. In addition, other components of a herd management program affect the nutrition program and, ultimately, profitability. Here you will find information on some of the areas to consider fine-tuning management programs for dairy heifers, calves, and dry cows and how the nutrition program is affected by other management practices.
