FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We have the answers to your questions

In dairy cows, the weeks before and after calving play a crucial role in the longevity, health and performance of your cows. The dry period enables your dairy cows to rest and prepare for calving and the start of the next lactation. After calving, cows should be fed a well-balanced ration to achieve high peak milk production.

When rearing a heifer to become a well-developed and productive cow, not only are the first 6 months important but the entire period from birth to calving. At each stage of your heifer's life, the nutritional needs are different. Our farm advisors can explain the requirements of your heifer at each phase of her life until calving and advise about the optimal feeding strategy to suit your specific farm situation. 

Each ration for cows consists of the farm's own roughage mixed with compound feed, by-products and other raw materials. Our feed advisors aim to balance the ration for a high milk production in a healthy way. And make optimal use of the roughage available. This will result in the most profitable strategy for your farm and the performance of the cows.

If you want to improve your farm's performance, you first need to define your goals. Our technical advisor knows about feeding, farm management and monitoring the results. He can help you analyse your current performance and key parameters such as feed efficiency, ration composition and the health of your cows. You will gain insight into how to improve the performance to achieve your goals.
