- Additional Information
After calving, nutrient partitioning makes milk the first priority and reproduction the last. Feed the young cow to continue to gain weight. Otherwise, her growth slows or stops, possibly delaying rebreeding. Rebreeding is most sensitive to deficient nutrients. Therefore, first calf heifers on an inadequate diet may return to estrus (heat) later, settle later and have a lighter calf at weaning. With the short period between calving and breeding, a cow must recover from calving, nurse her calf, gain weight and return to estrus prior to the breeding season. This requires a high plane of nutrition with special care taken to meet her trace mineral needs. The critical trace minerals involved in rebreeding are Zn, Mn, and Cu.
