Dairy cow performance

Farmers can influence the herd’s milk production performance by managing the feeding, housing and nurturing of cows, in order to get the best balance between yield and longevity. Trouw Nutrition will support you in reaching your milk production performance goals.

Optimising lifetime daily yield

To optimise lifetime daily yield, it is important to focus on three key areas:

  • Age at first calving (LifeStart), preferably to fall between 22 and 24 months of age
  • Milk production (cow production potential): supporting the dairy cow’s adaptation to a lactating state without excessive metabolic stress
  • Longevity (animal health and welfare), with the aim of reducing early involuntary culling rates during the first 100 days in milk

Feed, silage and total mixed rations management
