Dairy Presentation

  1. 1. We always are! SOME THINGS ARE A MUST…..
  2. 2. Monthly Walk -Thru <ul><li>It is out philosophy that designing a ration on a computer is only half the answer the rest of the answer must come from the cows, and their response to the diet in- production, over all health and body condition change. </li></ul><ul><li>Each month we do the following ~ </li></ul>
  3. 3. Dry Matter Testing <ul><li>Necessary for maintaining a balanced ration. </li></ul><ul><li>Changes in DM can result in loss of milk, higher costs, or herd health concerns. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Body Condition Scoring <ul><li>Important management tool for maximizing milk production and reproductive efficiencies, while reducing herd health problems. </li></ul><ul><li>A necessary indicator to confirm </li></ul><ul><li>protein & energy balance in the ration. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Lameness Report <ul><li>Use as a management tool to monitor hoof health. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Cud Chewing <ul><li>Quick Indicator of Rumen health. </li></ul><ul><li>Enables us to pin point opportunities: </li></ul>
  7. 7. Record Analysis <ul><li>* Persistency </li></ul><ul><li> *Components </li></ul><ul><li>* SCC </li></ul><ul><li>* Reproduction </li></ul><ul><li>* Cow Management </li></ul><ul><li>*Peak Milk </li></ul><ul><li>Helps foresee future problems. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Feed and Water Report <ul><li>Another set of eyes to help in bunk and water management. </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluating molds, toxins and their potential hazards. </li></ul><ul><li>Bunk Densities </li></ul>
  9. 9. Facility Evaluation <ul><li>Air movement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wind speed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Air exchange </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Space requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Freestall design </li></ul><ul><li>Photo period evaluation </li></ul><ul><li>Feed bunk management </li></ul><ul><li>Expansion Strategies </li></ul><ul><li>Including Calves, Heifers and Dry cows </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Particle Length Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Insure a Healthy Rumen Mat </li></ul><ul><li>Regulate Rate of Passage which will improve feed efficiencies. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Manure Screening <ul><li>Subjective approach to find opportunities in starch and fiber digestion. </li></ul><ul><li>A simple way to access rumen function of a dairy cow </li></ul><ul><li>Offers confirmation and direction for ration changes </li></ul>
  12. 12. Manure Scoring <ul><li>A quick visual approach to find opportunities in starch and fiber digestion. </li></ul><ul><li>A quick visual approach to determine the extent of TMR sorting. </li></ul><ul><li>Can help to diagnose areas for improvement in both ration, formulation and management. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Dry Matter Intake <ul><li>A necessary confirmation of how much the cow is eating. </li></ul><ul><li>If over estimated- loss of milk </li></ul><ul><li>If under estimated - higher costs and possible herd health concerns. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Digestibility ….the missing link! <ul><li>Various time point analysis of feed disappearance </li></ul><ul><li>Provides the information we need to synchronize proteins and carbs. </li></ul><ul><li>Provides NDF disappearance to ensure sufficient fiber digestion. </li></ul><ul><li>Improves feed efficiencies </li></ul>
  15. 16. CPM Modeling Program <ul><li>It is not a least cost program, but a best cost </li></ul><ul><li>Concentrates on microbial protein not crude protein </li></ul><ul><li>Focuses on fermentable carbohydrates </li></ul><ul><li>Balances on amino acids </li></ul><ul><li>Balances on PeNdf </li></ul><ul><li>Results in lower nitrogen waste </li></ul><ul><li>Improved feed efficiencies </li></ul><ul><li>Results in lower cost diet </li></ul><ul><li>Gives a platform for evaluating other feedstuffs </li></ul>
  16. 17. If your not getting this… <ul><li>Preventative maintenance is absolutely essential for finding opportunities to advance in maintaining excellent herd health , production </li></ul><ul><li>and reproduction. </li></ul>Your missing opportunities!
  17. 18. Not a Lone Ranger <ul><li>I recognize the value of the team approach. </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Tom Bass, DMV, PhD </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Tim Snyder, PHD, PAS </li></ul><ul><li>Mr. Steve Massie, MS, PAS </li></ul><ul><li>Mr. Ian Shivas BS, ARG </li></ul><ul><li>Numerous PhD’s , veterinarians, and university staff available for on farm consultation. </li></ul><ul><li>Bi-lingual milking schools, calf school and feeder training available. </li></ul>
  18. 19. Let’s find your opportunities!!
