Launch Your Cows Lactation to New Heights
A successful lactation is very similar to the successful flight of a rocket. It must start fast and accelerate quickly to reach the highest possible peak, and then follow a sustained glide path to a successful landing. In dairy cattle, the launch of a cow’s lactation begins with the transition period. A smooth, trouble-free transition can boost peak milk production, increasing the altitude from which the trajectory and glide path of her lactation
begins. From that higher peak and elevated lactation curve, she’ll achieve increased milk production for the entire lactation.
