Reducing the cost of dairy herd replacements

Reducing the cost of dairy herd replacements

J. agric. Soc. Univ. Coll. Wales. 43: 5-8

Food costs, other than grazing, account for 66% of the cost of producing a down-calving heifer. It was found that cows were more productive and more fertile when, as autumn-born heifers, they were reared on a moderate plane of nutrition for the first winter of 7 or 8 months and a high plane during the second winter period. Early weaning was considerably cheaper than rearing on whole milk or milk substitute.
