Feeding

 

We have Total Mixed Ration as a feeding system; roughage and concentrates are mixed in horizontal mixer wagon. The mix dispense directly from the mixer wagon to feed table, which is five meters wide. Feed is ad libitum, what simply means that animals are allowed to eat as much feed they want. The milking cow`s mix is composed so as to suit high yielding cows, while lower yielding cows eat less. The base of mix is hye-silage and concentrates are home grown, rolled, moist oat and barley and purchased turnip rape and minerals. The poorer mix includes more roughage ( straw and hye ) and so it is more suitable to pregnancy heifers and dry cows. Those are fed once per two days, milking cows and young stock are fed once per day.
