Category: Cow Feeding

Cow Feeding is supplying good nutrition to our Dairy cows. Feeding suitable good feed formulation should provide the cow with all the nutrition needs at a competitive cost. So how do we do that? We use the best raw materials available in our area, and we must ensure that all nutrition need will supply. In the Israeli Dairy School, we teach how to create a good feeding formulation.

Proper dairy cattle nutrition is one of the essential elements of milk production. Feed costs for the herd represent 50%-60% of the total expense associated with the production of milk. Still, the type of nutrition offered profoundly affects the dairy cow’s production, profitability, and overall health.

Look for our Dairy Herd Nutrition Management ebook covers important dairy nutrition topics. It is free for all our web visitors.
