Transition Cow Management

A successful transition nutrition program reduces incidence of costly metabolic diseases and gets your cows off to a good start.

The transition stage and early lactation are times of intense changes and stress for dairy cattle. Dairy cows undergo significant changes in glucose, fatty acid, and mineral metabolism during the transition stage. These changes are taking place in the cows digestive system to support lactation. The goal of a transition nutrition program is to help the cow adjust to these large changes and to avoid metabolic disorders.

A solid transition program strengthens the immune system, encourages dry matter intake, and provides the proper balance of trace minerals, selenium, proteins and carbohydrates. This will help to get cows off to a good start and reduce stress at the time of calving as well as reduce metabolic disorders.
