Heifers affected by method of feed delivery

Method of feed delivery can affect the growth and feed efficiency of young heifers transitioning to a higher-forage diet, according to research from Purdue University. FULL STORY »

Corn milling byproduct helps alleviate milkfat depression

A corn milling byproduct from the production of human foodstuffs is enriched with fiber and protein. FULL STORY »

Biofuel byproduct has potential in heifer diets

A new plant-based byproduct of biofuel production is a “viable alternative” to alfalfa meal for dairy heifers, according to research reported last month at the American Dairy Science Association Midwest meeting in Des Moines, Iowa. FULL STORY »

Diets to alleviate milk fat depression

Various diet formulation strategies were evaluated to alleviate milk fat depression using a corn milling product (CMP) that contained approximately 28 percent crude protein, 34 percent neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and 12 percent starch (dry basis). FULL STORY »

Postabsorptive carbohydrate adaptations to heat stress

Multiparous cows (n=34, 89 d in milk, 537kg) housed in environmental chambers were fed a control total mixed ration or one containing monensin (450mg/cow per day) during two experimental periods. FULL STORY »

Temporal feed restriction and overstocking

Dairy cows are often overstocked. Some managers are now using “slick bunk” (i.e., feeding for 0 percent orts) management to save on feed costs, but this reduces the time that cows have access to feed. FULL STORY »

Stick with dry hay

A rapid transition to a higher forage diet during the early post-weaned phase can be stressful on dairy heifers. FULL STORY »

The association of serum metabolites in the transition period

The objective was to examine the associations of peripartum concentrations of nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA), ß-hydroxybutyrate (BHBA) and calcium with milk production in early lactation and pregnancy at the first artificial insemination (AI) across different management systems. FULL STORY »

Duodenal flows of protein, essential amino acids in dairy cows

The objective of this analysis was to compare the rumen submodel predictions of four commonly used dairy ration programs to observed values of duodenal flows of crude protein (CP), protein fractions and essential AA. FULL STORY »

Identify at-risk fresh cows

The Nov. 20, 2009, edition of this newsletter and last November’s issue of Dairy Herd Management covered research from Cornell University on the risks associated with elevated levels of non-esterified fatty acids (NEFAs) and B-hydroxybutyrate (BHBA) in fresh cows. FULL STORY »

Nutritional models generally do a good job

Some of the commercially available nutritional models accurately predict essential amino acid flows to the small intestine, according to a study reported in the February Journal of Dairy Science. FULL STORY »
