Feeding Space for Heifers
On-farm visits recently have highlighted a continuing issue in heifer nutrition and management.
No enough space at the feed bunk for the heifers in the pen!
Too little feeding space at certain ages may result in:
- Slow growth rates
- High sickness or morbidity rates
- Large variation in growth rates among heifers resulting in significant size differences of heifers the same age
