A successful management of the transition period is crucial
To feed the global population in 2050, we need to revolutionize dairy production today. Consumers are becoming increasingly well-informed about what they eat, how their food is being produced and the impact on the environment. The solution is transformational, but possible: increasing the average milk production per day of life otherwise known as their Lifetime Daily Yield (LDY).
A successful management of the transition period is crucial to unlock the full potential of lifetime performance in dairy herds. The Selko programme for sustainable dairy farming translates the latest science into actionable insights and practical advice to support decision-making on farm, helping cows to deal more effectively with the three core physiological adaptations that occur during a transition: digestive, metabolic and immune.
Watch experts from the dairy industry share their views on the impact of increasing Lifetime Daily Yield and how to achieve it.
