FEED YOUR ANIMALS RIGHT NOW

Before silage stock get low and your animals lose condition.

A few points for you to think about:

  • Have your silage analysed, then you can match compounds / blends to fit your needs.
  • Don't compromise heifer growth rates - make sure you have a ration that maintains & improves condition, not to save forage stocks.
  • Under-conditioned animals perform badly when they join the main herd - get it right from the start and save time and money later on.
  • Consider making late silage - quality should be good enough for heifers.

Here at GP Feeds we have rations and prices to suit all needs.
Ring the office on 01948 661602 for more details.

DRY COWS

WHAT TO AIM FOR:

Two groups of dry cows with the far off dry cows fed at least a minimum of a high specification mineral tub and some starchy forage as well as ad-lib straw. All cows and heifers to have at least 21 days on a transition diet. Cows should have a body condition score of between 2.5 to 3.0. Thinner cows should be on a transition diet for longer.

Diets should contain similar forages to those fed post calving and either blend or EXCEL DRY COW ROLLS. A high specification mineral should be fed. Our EXCEL DRY COW MINERAL covers all your mineral and vitamin requirements.

This transition diet should be formulated by a competent nutritionist to check it meets the modern cows requirement.

Remember comfort is paramount. Would you let a pregnant woman sleep on a concrete floor? Pay attention to these cows and mastitis, lameness and infertility will be reduced.

RATION FAULTS:

  • Trying to slim dry cows in the dry period
  • Low quality forage
  • Poor cow comfort
  • 'roughing' it approach
  • Low vitamin and minerals
  • Mouldy feeds
  • One dry group
  • Wrong diet formulation
  • The use of milking cow minerals in a dry cow diet

MYCOTOXINS

Mycotoxins are chemical products secreted by fungi as a result of their normal metabolic processes. Moulds themselves can cause pathogenic situations (mycoses) but they can be easily controlled, either by drying or processing of the material on which it is growing or by adding mould inhibitors.

THINK YOUR FEED COSTS NEED TO BE CHEAPER? THING AGAIN!

There are too many compounders supplying poor and inferior diets. Yes IT might be cheap or so you may think but what are you really getting for your money? How much of the diet is made up of fillers - remember fillers are exactly that used to fill the animal and don't provide the essential nutrients that the modern animal needs.

To get the best from your animals we at GP Feeds believe that:

  • They should be fed only quality ingredients
  • A fixed formulation
  • A balanced nutritious diet
  • The correct level of vitamins & minerals
  • Palatable feed
  • No fillers

Feeding your animals correctly is more profitable to your business and increases your turnover. Here at GP Feeds we believe this is the only way to feed animals.

Remember that old saying from John Ruskin (1819 - 1900):

'A word to the wise'

"It is unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little.
When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all.
When you pay to little you sometimes lose everything,
because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.
The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done.
If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run.
And if you do that, you will have enough to, pay for something better."

So why not ring GP Feeds today on 01948 661602 and we will be happy to discuss our approach to feeding your animals with you.
