Feed and nutrition for breeding cows

Feed for breeding cows is relatively simple because of its ruminant characteristics, so cows can eat foods such as grass, straw, banana trees, sugar cane tops… On average, a cow consumes about 27-30kg of feed. To eat, you can provide more corn flour, cassava bran powder, oilseed meal, soybeans for them.

In addition, to make livestock farming simpler, you can use a 3A2, 2Kw multi-function chopper (round hopper) in livestock to help cows easily eat and digest foods. One thing to note, with breeding cows, you should provide clean water to ensure cows do not have gastrointestinal diseases.

Breeding for cows

Timely and timely detection of cow’s estrus so that when mating, the possibility of fertilization is higher. Breeding cows in cages, when showing signs of estrus, will often cry, stop eating, walk restlessly, like to jump on other cows, in the genitals secrete mucus like banana sap.

When a cow is pregnant, a specific care plan is required.

  • Feed and water are two factors to pay special attention to, feed the cows about 30-35kg of green grass, add about 2kg of compost and 1kg of starch (rice flour, corn, cassava…)
  • Do not allow cows to do heavy work such as plowing, harrowing and pulling carts in the 3rd, 7th, 8th and 9th months from the time the cow is pregnant. Do not chase, startle cows, panic. Breeding techniques recommend that cows give birth naturally, if you find cows too difficult to give birth, you will support them by gently pulling the calf out and cutting the umbilical cord for the calf.
