Abstract

Dairy cows have different food requirements at different times of the year.

Cows in peak production require much more food per day than dry cows. It is a waste of money to feed a dry cow more than it actually needs for maintenance.

Equally, it is uneconomic NOT to feed a producing cow enough to give maximum production.
