The emphasis on butterfat and protein reflects changing milk markets. High-component producing cows have one thing in common: a fully developed rumen! This information packed session will explain how achieving higher levels of component production begins on day one by focusing on better rumen development.
Dr. Shane Holt shares valuable data and management insights from Western dairies that will explain why rumen development is the critical first step in developing a high-component producing cow. He will explain when to start focusing on the rumen, highlight some common practices that actually hinder development, and show you strategies that have been proven to help fully develop rumens for efficient component production.
