The evidence mounts for the use of Ethi-Cal in transition

I recently received an email from a colleague that has been working with a local herd that during the Autumn calving period chose to do some of their own trial work in regards to transition feeding. I attach the excerpt from the email for your own interpretation.



Looked at some interesting numbers today out at a herd that i have started with for cows that calved in march,

Ethical group: 30 cows, on 33.3 L today, peaked at 35.3
Lead feed group: 43 cows 29.2 L today, peaked at 33.2
Both groups had an average of 3 lactations per cow. 

The farm owner even seemed to think the lead feed group had some of the better cows in it as well, 3 of which were sitting on 50 L

We then looked at taking the first lactation cows out of those groups

Ethical group: 25 cows, 34.7 L today, peaked at 36.8 L on day 74
Lead Feed group: 39 cows, 29.8 L today, peaked at 34.1 L on day 64
Both groups had an average of 4 lactation per cow

Cool Banana's".

I know as well as anyone that this is very much uncontrolled and purely anecdotal, but its a nice little endorsement for trying something new and really exciting.
There is more and more evidence starting to emerge from herds that during the Autumn calving period chose to transition thier cows using the all new Ethi-Cal product, breaking all the conventional "Leed Feeding" rules along the way.
Many of the herds that chose to use this strategy have seen significant improvements in production, not only of Milk, but also milk fat, but probably most sginificantly in milk protein production. With Joing in full swing, we really look forward to the potential benefits of this strategy on the ever growing Fertility challenge.....we'll keep you posted.
