feeding management of dairy cattle

Forum: Feeding management

I have a dairy farm, I need to know the feed specification for milking cows, pregnant cows and calves with its feeding management. Does it have any extra benefits using rice screening in milking cows rations?

Dear Ekramul haque
You r wellcomed You have asked many questions in one question. There are different requirements for milking cows,pregnant cows and cows besides primary feed. Every section needs lengthy answer therefore i will recommend you to contact some reliable animal nutritionist in your vicinity. after animal selection feeding management is the most important knowledge which can make you or break you therefore i will suggest you to connect some nutritionest with you. last part of your question regarding use of rice screening my experience is in favor of using it for increasing milk production
