Vitamin D is good for cows too
Our Project Manger Rachael has been inventigating the benefits of vitmain D supplementation in dairy cattle. This week, some of her work was featured in an article in The Weekly Times newspaper.
Cows that were fed a partly-activated form of vitmain D in the lead up to calving had more calcium in their blood, produced more milk and were healthier than cows fed an unactivated form.
So supplementary vitamin D is beneficial for cows too!
