We must have: a high number of pregnant cows, which give birth without problems in the peripartum and with a high ingestion of dry matter immediately. So we will have the cows that get pregnant at the desired time, the days in milk decrease and the production increases accordingly.
It is possible to reach these goals by knowing the factors that influence them and first of all is MEASURED MINERAL NUTRITION. In fact, minerals are the essential factor in the physiology and nutrition of dairy cows.
The first nutrients such as energy and proteins are strongly bound to minerals for their use. Minerals affect every function of the animal's body at all times
Our knowledge and our analysis and rationing protocols allow us to know the real situation of the animals and predict the strategic choices of nutritional and management intervention.
Let's find out how.
Imbalances in mineral homeostasis
Variable dry matter ingestion
Risk of Alkalosis or Metabolic Acidosis
Worsening of performance with reduction in milk production and quality, significant increase in peripartum pathologies and decrease in reproductive parameters
Increase in the frequency of peripartum pathologies such as subclinical hypocalcemia, puerperal collapses, placental retention, metritis, dislocation, ketosis, mastitis.
The membrane pumps, which resides at the entry of nutrients into the cell is altered or blocked; nutrients (glucose, amino acids, minerals) are not used by all tissues: the ration is not effective
The kidney responds to the body's needs for homeostasis (conditions of water-salt balance), the blood acts as a latency liquid and cannot influence the concentrations of electrolytes, it simply transports them.
Urine contains electrolytes, anions and cations and allows you to evaluate the acid-base balance.
It serves to maintain the acid-base balance of the blood unaltered.
Urinalysis allows you to assess the state of mineralization of the cow, the risk of peripartum pathologies and its state of alkalosis or metabolic acidosis.
The precise reading of the situation of equilibrium or alteration of cellular homeostasis
Check which ion is interfering
It tells us how and where to act to restore homeostasis and the functionality of the acid-base balance
To be coupled with other analysis systems
