I have started newly one Dairy firm with 14 GIR COW. Please let me know the GIR COW feed habit. . They are giving 8 to 12 ltr per day milk. Please suggest me the what feed i give them and what quantity. I am new in this.
For cows weighing 350 kg and having 8 ltr of Milk and 4 per cent fat following ration can be offered:
1. Wheat Straw – 4 kg
2. Maize fodder – 20 kg
3. Compound cattle feed (type II) – 4 to 5 kg
4. Mineral mixture – 80 to 100 gm per day
i would like to know feeding regimen for HF cows giving 12-17 litres per day...weighing around 400-450kg...
i currently feed paddy straw,hydbrid napier grass(c04),compound cattle feed(type 2),mineral mixture..
what can i add or remove and what quantities do i feed them..
A 450 kg Cow yielding 15 litres per day will require around 25 kg of green fodder, 4 kg of Straw, 7 kg of cattle feed (BIS type II) and 110 g of mineral mixture.
Cost of green fodder (20kg *Rs 1.5) = Rs 30
Cost of dry fodder (2kg * Rs 5) = Rs 10
Cost of cattle feed/ concentrate (9 kg * Rs 20) = Rs 180
