Don’t let heat stress steal your dairy production

Beating heat stress in dairy cows with Selko NutriCool

Due to global warming, the number of days per year that cows are exposed to heat stress will grow dramatically104
(see figure 1).

Figure 1: Number of days per year on average which exceed a temperature-humidity index of 70 during 20-year periods (a) 1998–2017 and (b) 2051–2070. (c) is the difference between the 2051–2070 period and the 1998–2017 period.
  
Heat stress in dairy cows results in a significant decrease of milk production74, (see heat stress article). Next to that, it reduces fertility67,68 and increases the incidence of lameness.

A heat stress programme should include providing shade, cooling of the animals and ensuring they all have a comfortable bed. Nutritional intervention should include supplementation with Selko Nutricool to normalise rumen pH and reduce systemic immune activation71.

Selko NutriCool

Administration

Feed Selko Nutricool during periods of elevated temperatures. Mix 200 grams of Selko Nutricool in the TMR.

Features

Selko Nutricool contains substances that normalise rumen pH, reduce systemic immune activation and reduce the risk of hindgut acidosis.

Benefits

Normalising the rumen pH and reducing the risk of systemic immune activation and hindgut acidosis can help to avoid loss of production as a result of heat stress12,13.

Benefits

Normalising the rumen pH and reducing the risk of systemic immune activation and hindgut acidosis can help to avoid loss of production as a result of heat stress12,13.

The result...
Milk production in the Nutricool group* went up by 1.0 litre whereas milk production in the control group went down by 2.6 litres per day

This trial was carried out in South Africa with 2 groups of animals. Both groups were fed the same TMR for a period of 31 days. One group of 114 cows was supplemented with 200 grams of NutriCool per day, the other group of 123 animals was not supplemented.

Milk production in the NutriCool group went up by 1.0 litre whereas milk production in the control group went down by 2.6 litres per day (see Figure 2). Supplementation with Nutricool resulted in an increase of butter fat of 0.2%.

Figure 2: average milk production per day of 114 cows supplemented with Selko NutriCool compared to 123 cows not getting a supplement.

Beating the heat

Heat stress in dairy cows can already occur if the environmental temperature rises to 18-20 °C. Heat stress can have a very negative effects on animal welfare and performance. A heat stress control programme can greatly reduce these negative effects, but supplementation with NutriCool can result in further improvement. Trials have shown that supplementation with NutriCool can result in an increase of milk production of 1-3 litres per cow per day. Beating the heat with NutriCool can therefore help you to increase Lifetime Daily Yield of your cows and improve their welfare.
