Dairy Consultancy Service
Healthy Cows Consultancy Service offers regular, planned, monthly visits that ensure time is given to the effective management of your dairy herd.
A comprehensive Feed Rationing System is regularly updated to improve our understanding of how to ration cows effectively. Following a visual accessment on your dairy herd, the program will formulate a cost-effective, balanced ration with effective levels of all essential nutrients to maximise your yield, milk quality and animal welfare requirements to ensure fertility and longevity in your Dairy herd. The way cows perform on a diet depends not only on the nutritional specification of the diet but also on the physical form of the ration. The system assesses the quality of the fibre in the diet and how effective it is in promoting cudding and rumination, both of which are essential for high milk yields and milk quality. Body Condition Score (BCS) is an essential management technique and we rountinely assess the condition of your cows and formulate rations to maintain good cow condition.
