Optimizing the eating behavior of dairy cows
Despite many advances in the field of dairy cow nutrition, we are still often faced with the challenge of ensuring consistent and adequate dry matter intake to maximize production and maintain health. Dairy cows do not always consume their feed in a manner that optimizes intake and rumen health. Further, the eating behavior of dairy cows may also result in them consuming a ration that differs from that delivered to them. This presentation will describe the importance of good eating behavior in dairy cows and practical management and housing strategies that may be implemented to allow dairy cows to have good access to the feed provided to them, and to consume it in manner which is conducive to good health, efficiency, and productivity.
