An integral part of successful dry cow management
Many vets and nutritionists agree that the two weeks before calving is the most critical time in influencing a cow's performance in her lactation. Advances in dry cow management has seen improved cow health and performance, better calf viability and reduced calf problems but feeding the right balance of nutrients at this time is critical.
