Milk replacers as a contributor to longevity
Preparation for life as a dairy cow
Well-functioning organs are necessary for a long life. The lungs, udder tissues, and pancreas are the main priorities. The lungs need roughly twelve months in order to develop fully. This is why a healthy atmosphere is so important in stables for young cattle.
In contrast, udder tissue and the pancreas are fully developed after just a few weeks and abnormal development can no longer be compensated by subsequent growth. Therefore, intensive calf rearing with CombiMilk and CombiKorn is the first step that influences the longevity of cows.
