Future herd success depends on the quality of dairy replacement heifers entering the herd. Proper trace mineral nutrition during this critical period plays a key role in important dairy replacement heifer development factors such as feed efficiency, claw integrity and immune function.
Trace Mineral Benefits
Research has proven time and again that dairy cattle require trace mineral supplementation on a daily basis. Building a more profitable herd begins with better dairy replacement heifer nutrition.
Research shows that calves and heifers benefit from being fed a well-balanced diet. Healthy animals show:
- Increased efficiency of converting feed to gain
- Improved skeletal and muscle growth/development
- Decreased incidence and severity of claw lesions
- Decreased impact of claw lesions on first-lactation performance
- Minimized probability of developing health problems
