Calf Weaning Can Alter Nutrient Requirements of Cows
Calf Weaning Can Alter Nutrient Requirements of Cows
Louisiana forages are often low in quality in late summer. Nutrient intake from forage by a mature cow will usually exceed the requirement for maintenance but may not be high enough to meet the additional requirement for lactation. When nutrient intake is below requirements, the cow must pull nutrients from body reserves to meet her requirements. The result is weight loss and a decrease in body condition.
