Transition Pellet

GrainCorp Feeds have developed a Transition Pellet to help farmers set up their cows for the milking season. The Transition period is a critical period for the dairy cow which covers the 4 weeks before and after calving. While relatively new to the industry, getting Transition nutrition right has been shown to improve cow health, milk production and reproduction during the course of the season. Good Transition feeding helps improve rumen function, improve metabolism, boost the immune function and reduce the incidence of milk fever and other metabolic diseases such as ketosis, retained foetal membrane and lameness which in turns reduces cost and lifts seasonal profitability significantly.

Developed to be fed at 2kg per cow per day, for the 3 weeks pre-calving, each 2kg of the GrainCorp Feeds Transition Pellet contains a 200 gram dose of NutriMin® Springer Cow Balancer – HiMag. This product helps lower the DCAD of the diet for optimal Transition nutrition. NutriMin® Springer cow Balancer is also available as a standalone product.
