Feature Partnership: How precision feeding influences milk production

Bethan Grylls interviews Dr Rita Fornaciari and Simone Blotta from Nutristar to find out why more dairy farmers should be focusing on their cows’ nutrition.

The world of dairy farming is rapidly evolving and the sector is in search of methods to support an efficient and high-quality production.

Numerous factors can influence the milk produced by dairy cows, among which nutrition plays a key role.

Without access to an adequate diet, animals can experience health and welfare problems, and milk quality and/or quantity can also be affected, with significant knock-on effects on farm profitability.

Italian company Nutristar develops feedstuffs and supplements for livestock with a particular focus on dairy cows, providing solutions for forage production on farm and animal nutrition for the European marketplace.
