Dairy Compounds & Blends

compounds and blends

Today’s high yielding dairy cow requires precise feeding to ensure that yield and milk quality are optimised, that she gets back in calf quickly and that she has minimal health problems during lactation. She then needs to be prepared for the next lactation.

Dairy compounds continue to offer significant advantages to farmers whether you:

  • operate a simple system based on compound as the only supplement to forage
  • use out of parlour feeders to target specific cows
  • feed a small amount to supplement a TMR diet.
