Transitional Feeds

The importance of transitional feeds cannot be understated.  Transitional feeds ensure:

  • metabolic disease prevention in early lactation;
  • increased milk production after calving; and
  • positive effects relating to fertility.

Transitional feed benefits include:

  • adapting the rumen;
  • increasing voluntary feed intake to prevent production-limiting diseases, such as ketosis;
  • and up-regulating calcium control mechanisms.
