WHEN: November 1 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
WHERE: Ross & Steve Blanchs farm, Blanch's Rd, Lower Mt Walker, Rosewood, Qld

The session focuses on how transition cow feed management can:

  • Adapt fresh cows rumens to high energy feeds
  • Avoid milk fever and other health problems around calving related to hypocalcaemia
  • Maintaining high feed intakes post calving and control body condition loss in early lactation

Implementing an integrated approach to transition nutrition and fresh cow management results in:

  • Higher in-calf rates
  • Better use of labour
  • ·Lower culling and death rates
  • More milk (up to 300+litres / cow)
