Reproductive success in cows is contributed by the high quality concentrates, this is by promoting the better reproductive health and fertility. Concentrates help in maintaining proper body condition in cows.
Concentrates with high nutrient density contribute to improved feed efficiency. Cows can meet their nutritional requirements with smaller quantities of feed, leading to more efficient conversion of feed into milk or meat.
For growing calves and heifers, optimal growth rates and development are achieved through these concentrates inclusion in the diets. This is crucial for reaching target weights and sizes at specific stages of life. For instance calf pellets is essential in triggering rumen development in calves by ensuring the rumen microbial activity begins to grow and papillae development.
It’s important to note that normally feeding practices should be based on the specific nutritional needs of the herd, and the formulation of concentrates should take into account number of factors such as the cow’s stage of life, production goals, and the nutritional content of the available forage. Consulting with us, with our qualified nutritionists, can help tailor a feeding program for you to meet the specific needs of the cows in a given operation.
