In dairy cows, the weeks before and after calving play a crucial role in the longevity, health and performance of your cows. The dry period enables your dairy cows to rest and prepare for calving and the start of the next lactation. After calving, cows should be fed a well-balanced ration to achieve high peak milk production.
