Nutrition of dairy animals which means what you feed them, is very important for making profits in dairy farming. Lots of dairy farms shut down because they do not have the knowledge about nutrition. The maximum expense in a dairy farm happens towards feed and fodder without getting the desired output.
In terms of management practices in a dairy farm, formulating the diet and providing the right quantity and quality of feed and fodder are the most important. Even if you have 2-3 animals, you need to take care of your dairy farm like a professional business. If you have large number of animals and are providing the same feed and fodder to heifers and animals in different stages of lactation, you may face difficulties in generating good profits. At times, over feeding also leads to a number of diseases in dairy animals.
Dairy farming involves know-how of various subjects and feed and fodder or nutrition is one of the most important subjects that you have to understand. Sudden changes in the diet of animals causes harm to the good bacteria in their stomach or rumen which affects their milk production capabilities.
What you feed your dairy animals will determine how much milk they produce. Secondly whether your animals will stay healthy or fall sick often will also vary depending what you feed them. It will also determine whether they breed and reproduce efficiently and most importantly whether you make profits or losses in your dairy farm.
