While we know nutrition is a cornerstone of well-being for humans and animals, it has a large significance in the life of a cow, from calf to mature adult. Dr. Kevin Dill, director of dairy technical innovation for Purina, said cattle nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all model.

Dr. Dill said balancing proper nutrition and farm management is key to having healthy and productive cows.

The reproductive performance of cows goes hand in hand with proper nutrition.

Dr. Dill noted that cattle nutrition is not just about balancing nutrients- it requires a strategic approach that considers the unique needs of each animal group.

Additionally, the importance of nutrition extends beyond the diet itself.

Dr. Dill added that data should be used as a decision tool rather than just numbers to track.
