Macromineral element interrelationships and lactational performance: empirical models from a large data set


, : Macromineral element interrelationships and lactational performance: empirical models from a large data set. Journal of Dairy Science 77(10): 3096-3110

The objectives were to model empirical interrelationships among dietary macromineral elements and cation-anion difference influencing DMI, milk yield, 4% FCM yield. and milk composition of dairy cows. The database consisted of 1022 cow-period means collected from 326 midlactation cows in experiments with incomplete block designs. Dietary concentrations of elements ranged from below to above current recommendations, and cation-anion difference (Na + K - Cl) was from +5.8 to +61.2 meq/100 g of dietary DM. Interrelationships were detected for dietary concentrations of Na by K for DMI, 4% FCM yield, and milk fat percentage; Na by Ca for DMI, milk yield, and 4% FCM yield; K by Cl for DMI, 4% FCM yield, and milk protein percentage; K by Ca for 4% FCM yield, milk protein, and fat percentages; Na and P for DMI and milk protein percentage; and K by P for 4% FCM yield and milk fat percentage. Maximal DMI and milk yield were observed with .58% Na, .40% Mg, and +38 meq/100 g of dietary DM. Agreement was close for DMI and milk yield responses to dietary cation-anion difference from our database and independent data sets. The models developed are empirical, do not necessarily establish cause and effect, and should be evaluated prudently; however, they provide useful information to design future research.

Current feeding systems for dairy cows are based principally on metabolisable energy and aim to meet calculated energy requirements. They do not predict milk composition or the response of the animal to changes in nutrient inputs and are thus inad...

DM intake, and milk yield were unaffected by differences in d...

Partition relations are robust predictors for metal cations between pH 3 8. Oxy-anions and DOC have a very similar pH dependent solubility. The DOC coefficient accounts for the pH dependence of oxy anion concentrations. Multisurface models can pre...
