Nice Presentation. But I think that the ruminants especially the dairy cows are in trouble with mycotoxins FUM,T2,Don....In the last years we see in Germany 10-15 mg per head and day by this 3 mycotoxins in average.
The lifetime performance is actually very poor by 2.2 lactations and hardly 19000 kg milk in lifetime. And in the end of the day the liver of culling cows is adipose. I thi ...

From the toxicological and economical point of view, five mycotoxin groups are currently significant worldwide. These are aflatoxins and ochratoxin A, produced mainly in storage conditions by Aspergillus and Penicillium fungi, and trichothecenes, zearalenone, and fumonisins produced by Fusarium species, contaminating cereals in the fields. Depending on dosage and exposition time to mycotoxins, ani ...

I have done a lot of field trials in high yielding dairies and the situation is actually in Germany 2.2 lactations....19 500 kg life yield per cow....more or less the heifer growing periode is longer than the production periode in milk...The main reason is the toxic pressure in the liver. All the efforts in cow comfort are forcing the milk yield...but not fertility. In the trials we have ...

In most of the cases fertility problems due to a long time of negative energy balance in high lactation forced this effect. Preparing the next lactation means to start in the dry periode with a strategy to keep the actual BCS constant till calving. To reduce the BCS in the dry periode doesnt help. In the ...

really a main topic in cow feeding. One aspect will be the change from late lactation to dry periode. At the same time the Ration changed,-the leave out the milking process and at least move in another cow group. I think it to much at the same time. My recommendations are to change the ratio one week before start in dry periode.The feed intake at the first days in dry periode will be higher and th ...
