We know you value your cows. Treating them advantagously comes second nature to you.
They are the lifeblood of your business and ensuring they’re properly fed and cared for is priority number one.
Removing a cow from production due to an ailment can cost you valuable milk production time. If a dairy herd is receiving more crude protein than needed, the excess intake may put undue stress on the cow’s metabolism.
In addition, a heat stressed dairy cow eats less and uses more of its energy to cool itself. This can cause a decrease in milk production and milk protein content. Therefore, it is essential that a concentrated, nutritional diet be provided.
By balancing Mepron® in a methionine deficient diet you contribute to combating expensive health problems such as mastitis, DAs (displaced abomasums) and poor reproduction. Mepron® provides proper methionine intake, reducing the need for excess crude protein. By lowering crude protein, Mepron® allows for proper forage intake, which in turn, helps maintain proper rumen function.
