In terms of heat stress, "previously there was a drop in milk and a drop in dry matter intakess, but in the summer of 2020 Mr Gabaix observed changes, in particular a higher level of ingestion during hot periods.
“Nothing has changed with regard to the use of ventilation or misting, but we can see that the cows consumed more regularly, plus they maintained their dry matter intakes against previous summers". Resulting in our milk production holding up well around 35 litres/cow/day.
Preventing stress is a concern for Mr Gabaix and the use of OmniGen fits perfectly into this approach. "There is more tranquility in the management of the herd, it takes away some worries" concludes the breeder, who for the first time exceeded 2.5M liters of milk sold in 2020 "whereas at the beginning we were producing 1.3M liters in the same building”.
