It is known that using amino acid balancing technology in milking cow diets supports improved health and production performance. Now, research from the University of Illinois has repeatedly shown that amino acid (AA) balancing in pre-calving diets supports increases in milk fat and protein yields and dry matter intake post-calving.
Further dry cow AA supplementation trials also resulted in enhanced calf immunity, health and early growth in daughters who experienced AA supplementation in utero, as well as improving colostrum quality.
Premier Nutrition has formulated three core products for dry cows that suit most UK feeding systems and support the cow’s critical nutritional and health needs pre-calving.
We’ve formulated these to prepare for the increased nutritional requirements immediately post-calving as well as balancing amino acids lysine and methionine to reduce the cow’s negative protein or amino acid balance in preparation for the next lactation. Additionally, the Total Transition range can help support the reduction in risk of milk fever, boost the activity of her immune system, and reduce the risk of retained foetal membranes.
As always, please contact us if you would like to hear more about how we are supporting amino acids requirements of transition cows to support lactation performance post-calving. Our Total Transition range brings amino acid technology to farm level in an easy-to-use, top dress or TMR mixer format for every UK dairy farm. You just rip, tip and feed!
