Suck­lers

Irish Examiner - Farming - - BEEF SECTOR -

Con­tinue to sup­ple­ment suck­led cows at grass with mag­ne­sium after wean­ing. Al­lo­cate top qual­ity grass to fresh calvers, to help them come back in heat ASAP.

Try not to give dry suck­lers too much qual­ity grass, be­cause they can get over­weight quickly, re­sult­ing in calv­ing dif­fi­cul­ties and meta­bolic dis­or­ders.

If con­di­tions al­low, strip graze, and sup­ply straw in a ring feeder.

Con­tinue to sup­ple­ment with a good qual­ity dry cow min­eral.
