The use of whey in cattle feeding

, : The use of whey in cattle feeding. Aktuelle Fragen der Zuchtung und Futterung von Wiederkauern 21 Tierzuchttagung, Irdning, 10 Mai 1994: 11-19

Use of whey for feeding dairy cows, calves and finishing cattle is reviewed. It is concluded that whey needs to be introduced slowly, ad libitum intake is not recommended and sufficient amounts of roughage must be available. Whey varies in composition, depending on the type of casein precipitation during processing, therefore mineral and nutrient supplements may be necessary. As whey has corrosive properties, troughs should be plastic or stone, not cement.
