5 Tips for Winter Supplementation of Beef Cow Herd

biozyme-cow

Keeping cows in good condition in fall and early winter ultimately helps insulate cows and minimizes the amount of feed required later in the winter season.

Now that the first blast of winter weather is quickly approaching, have you thought about what that means to your cows?

Cold temperatures significantly raise energy requirements. Undeveloped winter hair coats, wet hides and wind all combine to magnify this increase in energy requirements. The combination of calving cows and colder environmental conditions can easily result in producers not providing enough feed energy and cows losing weight.

So what can producers do to manage the cold stress and feed adequately during the winter months? Here are some tips:

1) Feed higher quality hay (with more energy) and expect cows to increase intake. Without a forage analysis, you cannot be exactly sure of your hay’s energy level, which can lead to inadequate nutrition. BioZyme offers complimentary hay testing and nutrition analysis to producers through its nationwide dealer network and Area Sales Managers.
