Dairy Cow Challenges



Rumen Health

Feeding cows to maintain a healthy rumen and enhance the activity of rumen microbes will result in increased feed intake and improved feed efficiency. The result is more milk produced at lower cost. Rumen pH is a critical factor for good rumen health. If this drops below a critical threshold then SARA can result. The rumen becomes less efficient and cows are more vulnerable to other health issues, such as laminitis and mycotoxicosis. A good balance of energy sources and effective fibre are important and feeding a proven yeast supplement can help to maintain a stable rumen pH.
