For good production next lactation,
As a dairvnan, vou know that good milk production
doesn’t just happen It’s something you plan for bv
establishing a herd with the genetic potential for good
pioduction, then managing and feeding your cows so
they’" produce up *o their bred-in ability.”
Many successful local dairymen also plan for good pro
duction with a prosen program of dry cow feeding.
They need Purina Dairy Conditioner, a research
proven ration to help give dry cows body condition
tney need for good production after they freshen.
Purina Dairy Conditioner is an extra-palatable
peicent piotein ration. It’s fortified with vitamins A
and D plus extia phosphorus to help guard against milk
Purina Dairy Conditioner is low-cost, too, because the
amounts you feed depend on your cows’ condition and
on the quality of the roughages you feed For example,
a cow dried off in good condition being fed high-quality
roughages would require less Dairy Conditioner than
a cow in only Lur condition being fed fair quality
Drop in soon and get your free copy of the
Purina Dry Cow Program folder. We'll be glad
to show you how Purina Dairy Conditioner can
help you prepare your dry cows for good pro
duction next lactation.
