Suckler Cow Feeding

Suckler Cow Feeding


The costs of feeding the suckler cow makes up the largest proportion of the overall costs of keeping the suckler cow and her calf for the year. In the Teagasc Beef Manual feeding-the-suckler-cow (.pdf, 322kb) covers the importance of body condition scoring the cow at different times of the year and feeding the suckler cow in late pregnancy and during lactation. Feeding autumn calving suckler cows is also outlined.
