Dry Cow Feeding Farming Note

Dry cow feeding and management is central to any successful dairy business, however there is a tendency to put dry cows out in a field for the early dry period and leave them to their own devices. Getting this stage correct is key however, as your dry cow feeding and management today will influence your cows and your business for well over the next milking year. 

This Farming Note covers:

  • Management during late lactation to reduce problems at calving
  • How to manage each stage of the dry period
  • Dry cow feeding systems

Issued August 2007.
