Dietary Notes
Beans are Wetted to close to 30% moisture and given a light crimp at Maize Harvest
All proteins are tipped on the load at 1:10 Maize.
Standardised at 10% moisture so beans clamped with Maize 20% more than Rape or Soya
Ex Combine Wheat is wetted close to 30% moisture with 40Kg Urea added by diet feeder
then clamped 1M high under weighted plastic pasty
At feed out - Urea wheat is bucket mixed with other silages
Nutritionally The best rations are those based on Soya, beans and Urea Wheat
Pure clamped rape is NOT advised as cake has minimal soya.
The Cake diet demands Out of Parlour Feeders and will not deliver results at the lower
yield end unless a 25% -34% protein cake is fed at a base level in the parlour. at 3-4Kg
and 16-18% cake is fed in the OPF's
The base proteins and Urea Wheat will easily give 27-29L with no cake fed at all
Where possible a 2 group system is advised to avoid excessive conditioning cows
