maintain high milk production. Mature cows produce about 25% more milk than two-year-olds. Milk production increases until about eight years of age. Holsteins are the most prominent breed of dairy cattle producing aro pounds of milk a year. Approximately to gallons of blood pass through the udder for each gallon of milk produced. In days, a good dairy cow can produce 2, gallons or 20, pounds or 37, glasses of milk! Prize-winning dairy cows can make even more milk than that! In the dairy shows at NAILE, special awards are given for highest milk production in pounds. curds - the thick part of coagulated milk. Dairy cattle need a daily supply of all nutrients required for maintenance and production: milk, meat, growth and e to provide adequate feeding for the milk cows and calves results in low milk production, poor reproductive performance, poor growth of the calves and poor disease resistance. Nutrition and Lactation in the Dairy Cow is the proceedings of the 46th University of Nottingham Easter School in Agricultural Science. Said symposium was concerned with the significant advances in the field of nutrition and lactation in the dairy cow. The book is divided in five parts.

The antagonistic relationship between milk production and fertility (in dairy cattle at least) fits the evolutionary biology trade-off hypothesis. Much of this association is genetically. Milk production drives nutrient needs of dairy cows. Peak milk sets the lactation curve for cows and should occur 60– days after calving. First lactation cows should reach 75% or greater peak milk levels compared to peak milk levels of mature cows in the herd. Dairy Cows: Nutrition, Fertility and Milk Production. by Russell E. Marek July The elite milk producing phenotype of the modern dairy cow has adversely affected its health. Diminished udder health has serious implications for milk production, leading to decreases in milk yield, milk quality and increases in somatic cell count. Milk production per cow has increased due to management factors, including the introduction of BST (bovine somatotropin). BST is a naturally occurring hormone that can be synthesized through biotechnology. It improves milk production when given to lactating cows. Producers are thus able to increase the milk production of existing dairy cows.
