Dairy cows are reared for milk production. Milk is high in calcium and is an important food source for children. Feeding the animal right plays a major role in the quantity and quality of milk produced. Protein, fats, fibre, water, vitamins and minerals are some of the main ingredients that must be provided in the diet of dairy cows. This technical bulletin deals with feeding the dairy cow at various physiological stages.

These stages are:

  1. Calf (birth to 3 months)
  2. Heifer (3 - 15 months)
  3. Pregnant heifer (270 - 295 days)
  4. Lactating cow (produces milk for 305 days)
  5. Dry cow (approximately 2 months)
