Make sure iron levels in water don’t get up to 8 mg/L

At the Cornell Nutrition Conference last October, water-quality expert Dave Beede offered a sneak peek into research on iron concentrations in the drinking water of dairy cattle. FULL STORY »

Does feeding frequency make a difference for wet calves?

Researchers at the University of Minnesota recently completed a study comparing the outcomes of feeding young calves milk replacer (both conventional and accelerated diets) four times a day versus two. FULL STORY »

Preference and drinking behavior of lactating dairy cows

Drinking water can contain high concentrations of Fe, mainly of the ferrous (Fe2+) valence. FULL STORY »

Effects of milk replacer program on nutrient intake, growth

The aims of this study were to determine if feeding frequency (FF) of milk replacer (MR; meals/d) alters starter intake, growth and efficiency of growth in nursery calves fed a conventional or accelerated MR. FULL STORY »

Consistency in rations can help reduce competition at feed bunk

Brown midrib corn silage can result in longer peak milk yield

We’ve all heard the benefits of brown midrib (BMR) corn silage, owing to higher digestibility. FULL STORY »

Effects of feeding brown midrib corn silage with alfalfa hay

This experiment was conducted to test a hypothesis that lactating dairy cows fed 35 percent brown midrib corn silage and 25 percent alfalfa hay would consume more DM around peak lactation compared with those fed conventional corn silage, resulting in longer peak milk production. FULL STORY »

Sampling behavior of dairy cattle

Factors affecting sampling behavior of cattle are poorly understood. The objectives of this study were to measure the effects of variation in feed quality on the feeding behavior of Holstein dairy heifers. FULL STORY »

Subpopulations targeted for oral calcium supplementation

Lame cows and high-producing cows are good candidates for oral calcium bolus supplementation. That’s the word from scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica. FULL STORY »

Advice for setting MUN targets

People pretty well agree that an “acceptable” milk urea nitrogen level is in the 11 to 15 range. But there can be variation between herds and within herds. FULL STORY »

More research needed on CLA-fortified milk

There have been discussions over the years whether the diets of cows can be enhanced to encourage production of conjugated linoleic acid, which has health benefits for consumers. FULL STORY »
