Cattle Feed

Dairy cows demand a balanced diet for milk production, body maintenance and good health. The cattle feed being the most important input, has to be provided it optimal levels of quality commensurate with the production of the animal. The amount of milk produced by the animal is largely influenced by what is fed and how feeding is done. The amount of feed provided to the cows depends mainly on the amount of milk it produces and also on its weight, environmental temperature and levels of activity. Of late, many farmers are turning to compound cattle feed fed along with dry fodder and green grass as a regular form of nourishment for the dairy animals. This improves productivity, optimizes the cost of milk production and increase the net profitability.
