COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret
Mr Swinkels says that dried off cows should have a body condition score within a range of 2. The dry cow period starts with an abrupt cessation of milking and the insertion of dry cow treatment. Milk production should be as low as possible. Low milk production at drying off ensures a minimal build up of milk pressure in the udder and consequently a lower risk of milk leaking, meaning effective closure of the teat canal so reducing the chances of infection.

Poor feeding management of cows can lead to shorter, lower yielding lactations and increase calving interval. This report by John Moran from Asia Dairy Network explains the changing feed requirements of cows over the lactation cycle and how to match this with cow genetics. Cows must calve to produce milk and the lactation cycle is the period between one calving and the next. The cycle is split into four phases, the early, mid and late lactation each of about days, or d and the dry period which should last as long as 65 d. In an ideal world, cows calve every 12 months.
Cattle production data management is a dynamic process requiring timely, accurate, and comprehensive information. Although many herd record systems are effective, computerized records allow fast access to large data sets and easily-retrievable, summarized reports. The cow-calf production phase works best as a yearly production cycle, beginning and ending with the calving season.
