The importance of Post-Calving Supplementation:

The overall aim:

Nutritional management of the postpartum cow must be adequate to promote milk production and ensure return to regular oestrous.

This is achieved by “filling the energy gap” post-calving through better supplementation:

Fertility and Breeding:

The importance of Phosphorus:

Phosphorus forms the backbone of DNA, is an integral component of cell membranes, is a primary component of ATP and ATP for energy transfer and is an important structural component in bone.

Dairy cows Phosphorous Requirements:

1.1g of P is lost per litre of milk produced

At peak production

a cow producing 26 kg of milk will lose on average 29g of P a day. Pllus a cow requires extra P for maintenance and breeding (25 to 30g/head)

Deficiency:

√ Lethargy
√ Reduced appetite
√ Abnormal gait
√ Pica Poor fertility
√ Lameness
√ Weight loss
√ Reduced milk yield

The importance of live yeast in the bovine diet:

The importance of live yeast in the bovine diet:

Many studies have shown the beneficial effects live yeast products have on:

A recent trial in a high yielding UK herd showed the benefit of supplementing dairy cows with live yeast.

The graph below clearly shows improved performance from cows supplemented with live yeast in early lactation:

The effects of live yeast supplementation to dairy cows during the hot season on production, feed efficiency, and digestibility.

Moallem U, Lehrer H, Livshitz L, Zachut M, Yakoby S. (2009)

"Examined the effects of live yeast supplementation to dairy cows during the summer season on milk production, feed efficiency and ration digestibility”

42 dairy cows were fed either a control lactating diet or supplemented with 1 g of live yeast (amounts adjusted twice a week) per 4 kg of dry matter consumed.

Results:

It may be concluded that life yeast supplementation to dairy cows during the hot season improved the rumen environment in a way that increased the dry matter intake and in consequence enhanced the productivity and efficiency.

The net result of supplementation with Shamrock Dairy Elite is:

Insufficient supplementation can predispose animals to
