The transition period in the life cycle of dairy cows, refers to the time interval between three weeks before and three weeks after calving. There is no period in the life cycle of a cow, which is more critical than the transition period. The end of pregnancy and beginning of lactation are accompanied by severe hormonal changes. Concurrent with changes in the concentration of hormones, severe metabolic changes also occur, which alter the direction of nutrients from being stored in the mother's body towards producing milk and feeding the newborn calf. During this critical period, the feed intake is significantly as its lowest level, and is usually used as an indicator of the nutritional status of cow. Decreased feed intake at the approach of calving, is not dedicated only to some specific breeds of cow, but it has been proved for many breeds. Although dairy cows can respond to the stress by increasing dry matter intake, but this response usually occurs with a delay, and as a result, the cow spends considerable time in the negative balance of nutrients. When the negative energy balance is severe, it directly results in metabolic disorders, such as: fatty liver and ketosis. Other problems, such as: retained placenta, displaced abomasum, and greater sensitivity to infections can be associated with a negative balance of nutrients that the cows experience during the transition period. Hence, in order to enhance the health of close-up cows, all the stresses exerted on the animal should be minimized to the possible amount, which is only possible by improving the metabolic conditions of the animal and increasing its feed intake. The profitability of a cow greatly depends on its successful transition period. Although nearly 50% of cows experience metabolic disorders at least once during the transition period, studies shows that 25% of culling cows during the first 60 days of lactation, are due to their unsuccessful prenatal period, which cause obvious economic consequences. Through an appropriate management and compliance with up-to-date nutritional strategies, this critical period can be successfully passed to a large extent.
Considering the sensitivity of the issue, being backed by the largest complex of livestock feed production factories in the country, benefiting from advanced technologies in the production of livestock feed and supplements, specialized research and development teams, and well-equipped and advanced laboratories, and using the present day's scientific resources of the world, Sepahan Daneh Parsian Commercial-Production Group has taken steps to design and manufacture various products for the transition period, to prevent the incidence of metabolic diseases, and minimize induction costs related to the livestock culling from the herd as well as veterinary costs, while minimizing metabolic stresses in this period.
The formulation of vitamin and mineral supplements has been done based on the lastest scientific resources of the world. Use of special vitamins and additives can dramatically reduce metabolic and oxidative stresses in transition cows. Therefore, while reducing the incidence of metabolic diseases, the health and optimal reproductive performance of animals will also be guaranteed.
