Hicks, Betsy; Lawrence, Joe
Even when producers put up the right quality of feed for a class of cows, ensuring that all cows have enough feed is a goal that has a few components to consider. Too much competition from other cows, not enough feed delivered, and a lack of communication between the farm team can all be threats to each cow consuming her daily allotment. When the farm team works together to ensure cows have adequate feed and their management allows for normal daily cow needs of rest, rumination, drinking, socialization, and eating, productivity is bound to increase.
