Formulating Diets for Groups of Lactating Cows

Dr. Bill Weiss, The Ohio State University

Formulating accurate diets for lactating dairy cows requires users to input body weight, milk production, milk composition and perhaps other factors such as days in milk and parity. If you are only feeding one cow, those numbers are easy to get, but if you are formulating for a group of cows, what numbers should you use? 

This webinar will discuss:

  • Proper cow specification inputs for various nutrients
  • Factors affecting those inputs
  • Grouping criteria that result in more accurate diets
