2. Calf Feed - Tips for correct calf rearing
Tip 1: colostrum
Whether a calf becomes an ordinary dairy cow or a productive high-performance cow is decided in the first weeks of life or if not immediately after birth. The decisive factor here is the quality and amount of colostrum that the newborn calf drinks immediately after birth. What is colostrum? Beast milk is only milk that is milked from the suckler cow shortly after the calf is born. Calves reduced most of the immune system just a few hours after birth. A large amount of colostrum provides the young calf with optimal care after birth, because colostrum is rich in vitamins, protein, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and antibodies.
The recipe for success is: Give your newborn calf as much colostrum as possible (at least 2 liters) immediately after calving and thus promote the health and physical performance of your future dairy cow or fattening cattle!
Tip 2: milk replacer
High-quality milk protein and milk powder for calves allow the calf's organs to develop optimally and the animal's cell metabolism will be positively influenced in the years to come.
Tip 3: Intensive calf feeding
The technical term "metabolic programming" describes the decisive advantages of intensive feeding of the calf in the first weeks of life. In the first weeks of life, the metabolism of young calves is shaped by the appropriate calf feed that is tailored to calf rearing. The intensity and type of calf feeding affects not only the physical condition and health of the calf, but also future performance in the fattening or as a dairy cow.
Tip 4: Promote rumen with calf concentrate
You can promote the development of the rumen of a calf very well with a well thought-out feed concept consisting of basic feed (straw, hay) and a concentrate mix. Provide your calf with tasty and healthy food for calves and the best hay right from the start and thus stimulate the decisive development of the rumen.
3. Dairy Cow Feed - Optimize milk yield through vitality & nutrition
Longevity of a dairy cow thanks to good genetics, optimal dairy farming, healthy concentrated feed for dairy cattle and the associated high milk yield - healthy dairy cows are crucial for the success of a dairy farm. Only with a healthy cow feed that is tailored to the animals and an optimal husbandry can the genetic engineering advantages of dairy cattle be exploited and ever better results achieved.
Tips for optimal dairy feeding:
- Versatile feed rations with enough raw fiber such as straw or hay
- Complementary feed through protein-rich green feed and / or high-energy healthy dairy cattle concentrate
- Distribute cattle feed over several doses to protect the rumen
- Mix dairy feed with green fodder
- Ensure protein supply through the feed with high-quality protein-rich dairy feed
- Change the rations (summer and winter rations) only slowly. The rumen bacteria broke about 3 weeks to adapt to changes.
- Feeding errors can cause diarrhea. Promote the health of the cow with special supplementary feed.
- Frequent feed supply and feed feed for a high basic feed intake
How to increase milk gain:
Basic factors in milk payment are the milk ingredients protein and fat. The protein content is particularly valued in the dairy industry.
Ultimately, the higher the milk protein content, the higher the milk gain.
Milk cow feeding and fat content
The ratio of dairy cow concentrate to basic feed such as hay or straw has a significant influence on the amount of fat. The acetic acid formed in the rumen is particularly important in milk fat formation. Most of the acetic acid comes from the degradation of digestible plant components in normal feed. The ration amounts in dairy cow feeding should contain about 19% of good raw fibers, at least half of which should be structured like hay or straw. Note: Particularly low or very high milk fat values always indicate a feeding error and health problems of the cow and should always be avoided!
Milk cow feeding and protein content
The milk protein of the cow largely depends on the microorganisms in the rumen. About two thirds of the total milk protein that the cow has in the small intestine is made available through the rumen bacteria and only one third through the protein in the feed mixture. This means that the rumen bacteria in particular must be supplied with sufficient high-quality protein and energy.
With the best basic feed and cow feeding mixture that are optimally matched to the milk cow, you achieve good bacterial work and thus the best milk ingredients with a visibly good milk fat content. The right dairy feed mix also ensures the fertility and vitality of the dairy cows and increasing milk production. Note: Overfeeding with protein does not improve the milk protein content, but endangers the health of the cow through an excessively stressed cell metabolism!
You have to know this when dairy farming:
Tip 1: Cow comfort in the cowshed
Pay attention to any abnormalities in the dairy barn. Do the cows avoid certain areas in the cowshed or do you frequently scratch the wall? Find the cause and eliminate the problem. Whether parasite infestation or poor hygiene - the well-being of a cow is largely responsible for the milk yield. High-quality dairy cattle feed also contributes significantly to the increase in fertility, vitality and thus to the milk performance of a dairy cow.
Tip 2: Keep an eye on fresh lactating cows and dry cows
Many small building blocks during the transit phase are crucial for the milk yield and vitality of the cow. With the right cattle feeding during the cattle dry period, the basis for the next lactation is laid. During this time you should always keep an eye on the condition of the cows. During this time, give the cows a larger feed ration with hay and litter so that they do not lose too much rumen volume during the dry period.
After the calf is born, it is difficult for a cow to eat enough feed to meet the high energy requirements at the start of lactation. The resulting negative energy balance leads to a reduction in body fat and a decrease. Therefore, offer your cows particularly high-energy concentrated feed at the beginning of lactation!
Tip 3: Avoid overheating the dairy cattle
Cows don't like it hot! Cows feel particularly comfortable at temperatures below 15 degrees. The hot summer months are therefore not only a challenge for us, but also for the cows and the effects are unmistakable: Decrease in milk yield, changed milk ingredients, less fertility and hoofed deer can reduce the operational success of your dairy farm.
Tip 4: Pay attention to the sufficient water supply
Make sure your cows get enough to drink. Basically, one says: Five liters of water per kilo of dry matter, milk yield and ambient temperature must also be taken into account with this rule of thumb. Regular cleaning of the drinking bowl and checking the flow rate are important measures for sufficient and clean drinking water.
Tip 5: Avert the feed selection of the dairy cows
Cows should not be able to choose the feed source themselves. A stable rumen pH value is ensured by sufficient crude fiber in the total ration, even with appropriate concentrate feed and in the upper performance range. A selected stable feed mixture consisting of basic feed (hay, straw) and concentrate feed prevents the dairy cattle from eating too little basic feed and selecting feed components.
4. Cattle Fattening Feed- Best meat quality through healthy cattle
Healthy animals, high meat quality and short fattening periods - with a feed management tailored to the animals and high-quality beef fattening, you will achieve profitable success in your company. The basis for a successful young bull fattening is animal-appropriate and needs-based feeding in the rearing phase. High-quality cattle feed as a supplementary feed can shorten the entire fattening period and makes a significant contribution to the rapid conversion of the bull calf.
At Agrarzone you will find high-quality cattle fattening feed for fattening calves and feeders. All raw materials for our beef feed mixtures are grown in the region!
Tips for optimal feeding beef fattening:
Tip 1: Switch the calves to beef fattening correctly
If calves are bought in from intensive cattle fattening, the changeover phase can cause stress in the animals. The stress of auctioning cattle often leads to lower feed intake and thus brings the problems into the cattle shed. An increased susceptibility to diseases and diarrhea can spread to the entire cattle fattening stable. With suitable hygiene measures, you can strengthen the well-being of your cattle and prevent diseases.
Tip 2: Adjust the protein and energy supply to your mast section
In order for the cattle to grow optimally, the protein and energy supply should be adapted to the respective fattening section. The cattle fattening is divided into two sections from approx. 170 kg to approx. 750 kg (beginning and end fattening).
In the initial fattening up to approx. 400 kg, the beef has the best prerequisites for the muscle meat preparation and accordingly a large energy and protein requirement. In the final fattening from approx. 400 kg, the muscle meat consumption and the daily gains decrease. From a certain size, your bull can be supplied with less protein and therefore at a lower cost.
Tip 3: Pay attention to the rumen acidification of your cattle
Overacidification of the rumen leads to reduced eating performance and restlessness. A low ration of basic feed in the form of raw fibers or an overly intensive feed with a high proportion of grain can cause rumen overreaction in cattle fattening. Therefore, pay attention to a balanced amount of basic feed and fattening feed.
Tip 4: Pay attention to the sufficient water supply
Regular cleaning of the drinking trough and checking the flow rate are important measures for sufficient and clean drinking water. At the end of the fattening period, the drinking bowls are often too small, which means that the water supply can often not be guaranteed.
This is how cattle gain weight quickly:
- Tasty and energetic cattle concentrate and basic feed
- Healthy calves and healthy adult animals capable of fattening
- Optimal composition of the daily feed ration
- Optimal berth and stable conditions tailored to the cattle
- Regular animal observation and exact adherence to the feeding schedule
- Appropriate supplement of the feed ration with mineral feed
This shows you whether your cattle fattening farm is economical:
- Inexpensive and energy-rich basic feed with targeted feed supplementation using cattle feed
- Mast weight around 750 kg in the case of Fleckvieh
- Under 500 fattening days from calf & under 400 fattening days from feeders
- The effort must match the increase
- Healthy, large calves & healthy, large and weaned eaters
- Low fat and good carcass quality
