We are facing a challenge: How can we get fresh cows to absorb more energy? The feed intake and capacity of the rumen is limited.
In the first weeks of lactation, newly-milked cows use much more energy than they can take in. We call this a negative energy balance. With all the consequences this entails. They lose their condition and become susceptible to calving disorders such as ketosis, milk fever and fertility problems. Our solution? A good dry period and a good starter ration.
