Feeding Tips • Molafos® Grower should be readily available for the growing dairy heifer to achieve target joining weight. • Green Feed – when available will affect the intakes ie intake will initially fall as pasture protein is high and has adequate energy levels. Once feed starts to mature (dry feed) and seed heads begin to appear intakes will again rise to recommended levels. • Dry Feed – on dry mature feed, Molafos® pasture supplements will improve growth rates through increased intake of pasture and the added energy and other nutrients in the Molafos®. Heifers need to maintain a weight gain of over 500g/day to ensure target joining weights are reached.

Pasture Quality Due to seasonal and soil conditions, pasture quality is quite variable as shown in Figure 1. This variability affects the consistency of animal performance achievable, especially over dry weather and can result in a negative production or weight loss situation. However, feeding Molafos® Grower over the entire year will provide the Dairy Heifer with a positive weight gain advantage.
