Despite many advances in the nutritional management of dairy cows, we know that dry matter intake is not always maximized, nor is the way feed is consumed always ideal for the cow. In this dairy video, you can learn about the role that feeding behavior has on ensuring dairy cow health and productivity, including how, when, and what cows eat of the feed provided to them. Dr. DeVries will also discuss how we use that knowledge to evaluate feeding systems, including the management of feed and the feeding area. Strategies may then be implemented that allow cattle to have good access to the feed provided to them, and consume it in manner which is conducive to good health, productivity, and welfare.
