Managing Rumen Health Farming Note

The rumen is the powerhouse of the cow, a huge fermentation vat housing a delicately balanced ecosystem of microorganisms. When rumen conditions are changed, effects on the animal as a whole can be great and self-perpetuating, and therefore can require intervention. Monitoring rumen health and implementing early corrective treatment can improve overall herd performance.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Rumen fact and figures every dairy farmer should know
  • Common rumen ailments
  • Assessing and monitoring rumen health
  • Treatments such as drenching and fluid transfer

Issued August 2013.
