A physical sampling of the manure and analysing key indicators to digestive health will outline the rumen health of the herd.
Those individual on farm audits take a minimum of two hours with ten different manure samples taken allowing us to give detailed suggestions for improvements if required.
This is particularly important when cows transition from a grass-fed diet to a winter ration and vice versa
YOUR AUDIT WILL LOOK FOR KEY INDICATORS INCLUDING …
- General condition of the cows
- Percentage of cows ruminating
- Feed sorting
- Signs of acidosis
- Undigested material
- Mucin casts
