The analysis of milk constituents in relation to the lactation stage and milk yield is of crucial importance in order to detect deviations safely and easily. Both the urea report and the 6-field chart provide valuable information on milk composition.
During the course of lactation, milk components, especially fat and protein, change significantly. By regularly monitoring these values, potential problems such as ketosis and an energetic undersupply can be detected early and counteracted accordingly.
MRec (milk performance test) data provide a reliable basis for assessing milk quality. A comparative analysis of the current values with those of the previous month enables effective monitoring of the success of measures already introduced to improve feed composition or other intervention-related measures.
In summary, the evaluation of milk constituents over the course of lactation allows a sound assessment of milk quality and animal health. This helps to identify any problems at an early stage and take appropriate actions to counter them in order to optimize the productivity and health of the animals.
