Dry period & transition

Ideally, the transition from dry period to lactation should be smooth. Unfortunately this rarely the case, but it is possible to get the dry period and the start of lactation under control.
When do the preparations start for a healthy dry period? Actually, they start half-way through lactation.
Our training course starts with the drying-off day and ends 4 weeks after calving.
 

As you’ve come to expect from Vetvice, we explain dry period management from a variety of angles. We approach it from the perspective of a manager of a large farm and discuss standard procedures. We identify with the person who has to do the work and ask how he can achieve top-class results with ease. And we put ourselves in the position of the cow: what does she need for a good start to lactation? How does she tell us she’s doing well; how does she tell us we need to take action?

80% of your cows’ problems occur in the transition period.
Any improvement quickly pays for itself.
Every dry cow should eat the correct diet and be in top condition. Among other things, this means the right condition score, adequate rest and adequate movement.
From healthy dry cow to healthy milker.
