NIS In Housed Dairy Cows Diets
The challenge when housing cows is maximising energy consumption and obtaining nutritional consistency despite a number of variables in forage and cow behaviour. NIS can even out these differences and support healthy rumen function to give better health and improved feed conversion efficiency.
Variables in the housed cow diet include forage quality, particle size, moisture content, digestibility and quality of fermentation. The cow’s ability to sort the diet, her space at the feed fence and her water intake add to this challenge.
