Winter… and Dairy Heifers!
There are numerous known advantages to having dairy heifers calve at 24 months of age. In order to achieve this goal, there are several important aspects to keep in mind: nutrition, environment and management. With the onset of winter come colder temperatures, wind, rain, snow and mud ~ all of which can have a detrimental impact on reaching the desired goal.

WINTER IS A BUSY TIME ON THE FARM…
Farming is a year-round full-time job! You work as hard in the winter as in any season of the year, with a never-ending list of things to do, fix, and buy.

WINTER LIGHTING & YOUR COWS…
As winter sets in, we experience not only cold, damp weather, but also a reduced level of daylight. Studies show the impact that reduced daylight may have on people, with many suffering from what is called SAD (Season Affected Disorder). What about your cows? Are they impacted by reduced daylight during winter?
