Heifer nutrition is vital for sustained steady growth and development. Dry cow management is vital for sustaining herd health and longevity. These feeds prepare the animal for lactation by building body reserves of essential trace elements thereby helping to prevent calving difficulties, retained after-birth, uterine infections and lactation metabolic diseases.The aim should be to dry off and calve down at a Body Condition Score (BCS) of 3.0 for the Holstein. BCS above 3.5 will lead to reduced lactation feed intake, excessive body weight mobilisation and increased risk of ketosis and liver problems.
