Dairy Breeding

Breeding, an important step in dairy farming

When a farmer does not know which bull served their cow, there are high chances of the farmer serving the cow’s daughter with the semen from the father. This is called inbreeding.

Feed your dairy cow well to get a healthy calf

Animal nutritionists say that when you are feeding a pregnant dairy cow, you are feeding two animals (the cow and the developing calf in its uterus). What this simply means is that when a cow is incalf (pregnant) it needs adequate and balanced feed that is enough to meet her body maintenance and also that of the calf inside her.
