feeding dairy cows

Getting the right feed, into the right cows, at the right time is the key to optimising performance in modern, high yielding dairy cows. Whether targeting milk yield, milk quality, health or fertility; high quality nutrition tailored to meet the cows’ exact requirements is vital to ensure that they produce milk as efficiently as possible, get back in calf and suffer as fewer health problems as possible.

Dugdale Nutrition’s range of dairy feeds and complimentary products are all designed and recommended to suit the exact requirements of the cow, whatever her performance level or stage of lactation.

With a range of compounds, blends & meals, the needs of both lactating and dry cows can be met to exacting standards. Whilst our range of other products, including minerals, digestive comforters and protected fats complement our bulk feeds to further refine the supply of nutrients.

Dugdale Nutrition’s ruminant team, are all trained to FAR standards and fully able to unleash your cows’ full potential. Contact us to find out how.
