Scanned around Newcastle, Co Tipperary, Ireland this week. young stock are out and about. There is absoutely no feed for cows- no grass. With the night frosts there will not be grass ahead of cows for the foreseeable future. This will give rise to problems in terms of dry matter intake and body condition.loss amongly freshly calved cows. I strongly recommend concentrate supplementation in addition to adequately buffer with good quality silages.
