Hello,

We have 20 HF cows in our farm which are at second lactation. We feed them corn, alfalfa, pellets, mineral mixture.jowar forage. The problem we are facing is that cows don't have the require body weight and this results in low milk production ie 10liter/day.

It would be helpful if you can guide us with nutrient and feeding management.

Thanks

The weight at the time of breeding should be 2,3 of mature weight. Your animals were bred when they were underfed. So lot of energy was used for reproduction production and foetus growth. The result is shorter lactation length, small size calves with low weight and low mink yield. Feed soya, maize and alfalfa having around 18% CP. Try to improve body weight or culling could be good policy. Cull the animal below wet average

I am not familiar with available feeds. Replace low quality forage (straw mature grass hay) with a ground grain such as corn, sorghum or milo, barley can be starting grain maybe 3 - 4 kg per cow per day. Feed at time of milking. Water should be available immediately after milking. Cow should get mineral supplement data to provide 200 grams CA 80-100 grams phosphorus, 80 grams magnesium. Salt block. Also a trace mineral package (Copper,zinc, manganese, cobalt, selenium and iodine. These are general guidelines based on US NRC publication.

for low milk production and low BCS, supply bypass fat @ 10g/1kgmilk and bypass protein particularly in transition period 30day prepartum and 90 days post partum is good option.
