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.
For transition period the NWF Transition Cow Program has been formulated to actively tackle the key areas responsible for a healthy and productive transition period.
