The importance of good dairy feeding

  • Sharebar

No dairy cow, no matter how good the breed can remain productive without proper management, especially feeding.

The amount and quality of milk produced by a dairy cow is largely affected by what it is fed on and how the feeding is done. If a cow is given little pasture and water, and then it is housed in a dirty cow shed with overflowing cow dung, the result is poor milk yield and the farmer incurs other expenses for treating diseases that eventually reduce profit.

That means, a good breed that receives good feed and clean water, proper housing, friendly and gentle care gives more milk and by extension more money to the farmer.
