Sample text

All pulling is done intermittently and only while the cow strains, upon command of the operator. This allows the cow, the calf, and the assistants brief periods of rest before the next maximum effort. The only exception to this rule is when the hips of a calf that is coming backward have just come through the vulva. These calves cannot breathe because the head is still in the uterus and the oxygen supply via the umbilical cord has been cut off. Continuous traction is applied until such a calf has been delivered.

Complete rations are defined as rations in which the forage and concentrate components are blended and offered together and formulated to a specific nutrient concentration and offered ad libitum to cows. When cows are fed a diet as TMR, they are expected to consume a set amount of forage relative to concentrates; it allows for feeding more than one forage and to secure a more homogenous intake of the different forages offered. Because forage fiber intake is more precisely known, the use of TMR is expected to minimize the risk of digestive disorders and milk fat depression, although neither of the two is completely abolished.

Obviously, this can be done only in large herds with several groups. Cows in those systems would be fed the same diet as TMR until the dry-off date. Another system is to move cows from the so-called high-group to a low-group when production has declined below a certain threshold. In the latter scenario, the concept is that these lower producing cows do not require a diet with the same nutrient density as high-producing cows, and the excess of nutrient intake can potentially result in cows that become overconditioned, which may be more costly.
