Noblehurst Farms Inc.
Linwood, New York
“We have become more focused on heifer nutrition, particularly the protein needs in recent years. Our heifers’ nutrition program has become as important as the milking cows’ nutrition to ensure heifers meet our breeding goals.”
“Although a lot of dairy producers are facing financial hardships, it is very important to not skimp on the nutrition and management program of heifers. Purchasing the highest quality feeds available and enrolling our heifers in an accelerated program has allowed us to be successful.
“Nutrition is a large priority in our heifer raising program from the time they are born, better allowing us to produce large framed heifers at an earlier age. Once heifers join the group pens, we continue to deliver a high-protein ration for maximized stature growth without overconditioning.”
