The importance of Peak Milk
Improving your herd’s peak milk production levels will go a long way to lift the potential production for the whole season. Find out why nutrition should be your first target.
Dairy cows deliver the most for your business when they are at peak lactation, so keeping them at this level for as long as possible makes good economic sense. While some decline is inevitable, most of the fall-off in production we see usually comes from issues related to feed quality and quantity. Understanding what drives this fall in lactation yield is the first step to reversing the productivity slump.
