Effect of feeding level on milk production, body weight change, feed conversion and postpartum oestrus of crossbred lactating cows in tropical conditions



Effect of feeding level on milk production, body weight change, feed conversion and postpartum oestrus of crossbred lactating cows in tropical conditions



Livestock Production Science 77(2/3): 331-338



Responses to high (H), medium (M) and low (L) feeding levels on milk yield, reproduction and body weight (BW) were evaluated on 30 multiparous crossbred F1 cows (Holstein Friesian x Vietnamese Local Yellow) in lactation week 9-24, divided into two periods of 8 weeks each. The cows were blocked and randomly divided into 5 groups with feeding levels of H-H, H-L, L-H, L-L and M-M. The medium level was based on the NRC standard, the high level being 10% above and the low 10% under the standard.
