The "Winter-Summer Ratio" report was developed by Dr. Israel Flamenbaum and Ephraim Ezra.

Actual hot weather has negative impact effect dairy cows performance reproduction and production. Proper Management of housing and feeding animals during cool hours, of the day are necessary play significant role to improve milk production.

It is very important to feed also during cool hours but it is also very important to take the cow to shower in the night. After evening milk and before morning. A lot of dairy farms not doing it from a number of reasons and because it is hard.... this is a big mistake.

Hello Prof. Armagan;

I tried all the ways to reach you, but it was not a kind winter. I am writing from the Russian Federation. I have a lot of questions.

After many years of living here, we decided to do the fattening business. I want to feed simental or angus breeding. I want to buy at 4 months and sell when it reaches a certain weight.

Is it a suitable life for fattening in ice that I bought for 4 months? When is it appropriate to start (when it is monthly) and end the fattening program? Assuming an average monthly weight increase of 40.

I don't know why alfalfa is here, but it is possible to make a little expensive, cloverless fat. There are more alpha plants here.

I would be very happy if you could respond. Thank you very much for your time, your success is our pride.

May Allah be pleased with you and quality people like you.
