Dry Cows Oakwood

Delivering a fast return on investment 

... and let cows, calves and future offsprings benefit.

 

Between 2008 and 2013 six studies were conducted by the University of Florida.

All showed a higher milk yield in cows cooled during the dry period compared to non-cooled dry period cows.

The increase in milk ranged from 5.1 to 16.5 pounds per day

In addition to the increased milk production, cooled cows

  • consumed more feed at calving,
  • the birth weights of calves were approximately 13 pounds heavier
  • the weaning weights were 27.7 pounds heavier

The Dry Cow Barn is the second most important place (after the Holding Pen) to cool your cows.
