Adaptative behaviour, feed intake and milk production of cows fed from an Alfa-Feed automatic feed dispenser

Adaptative behaviour, feed intake and milk production of cows fed from an Alfa-Feed automatic feed dispenser

Allattenyesztes es Takarmanyozas 31(6): 513-519

Of 200 Hungaro-Friesian cows in 1st lactation observed for 6 months after installation of an Alfa-Feed automatic feeder, 75% adapted within 1 wk, but it took 4 months for all cows to adapt. For 48 cows 305-day lactation averaged 5286 kg with s.d. plus or minus 700 kg, and concentrate intake averaged 1560 plus or minus 358 kg (0.29 plus or minus 0.06 kg/l milk).
