To prevent a disbalance, it is very important to optimize the dry period ration which also should be very palatable to ensure feed intake. In addition, the feed may not contain too much energy and protein:
- Feed with too much energy will result in a cow that is too fat during the dry period.
- Feed with a too high crude protein content, will result in a high colostrum production after calving. As a result, the amount of antibodies is distributed over the total volume, so the amount of antibodies in 1 liter will decrease.
