Management tips for cattle
In this section you will find management tips for dairy cows, calves, young cattle and fattening bulls. Read more about the best tips on how to optimise your cattle feeding and management.
Latest recommendations on feeding intensity for calves
At Gut Hülsenberg, practical studies were carried out to test which watering regime provides the best compromise between growth and cost efficiency.
Stable milk performance despite heat stress
Heat stress occurs in dairy cows already at a temperature of 20°C. As a result, milk yield and fertility decrease, claw and udder health becomes worse. Learn here how you can support your cows through systematic feeding.
Whole milk feeding – More than just the mother’s milk
On many farms, whole milk is the basis for feeding calves. This means special demands on the management. SCHAUMANN provides support with flexible supplementary products for different needs.
The successful path for ruminants
Despite all the positive influences of an intensive liquid feed in calf rearing, the development of the rumen must not be ignored. Therefore, a high intake of supplementary feed should be provided in the first weeks of life. Learn more about what you need to bear in mind.
Raising winter hardy calves with adapted nutrient supply
With an adapted nutrient supply in winter, the rates of disease and loss of calves decrease. Read here what you should pay attention to when adapting feeding in cold temperatures and which products are particularly suitable.
Colostrum ensures a successful start in life
The rapid supply of antibodies via high-quality colostrum is decisive for the calf's performance. Learn how to assess the quality of colostrum using a refractometer.
Reacting correctly to high residual sugars in grass silage
Cold nights and sunny days lead to high sugar contents in grass silage. The risk of reheating of the silage and rumen acidosis in cows increases. This is how to react correctly with your feed planning.
Preventing feed selection - the only way rations work
In many dairy farms, a selection of the TMR takes place without this being noticed. The TMR selection influences the rations calculation. Read how you can recognise feed selection and what you can do to prevent it.
