• Roughage or pasture must be available at all times ad lib.
• Day 1-2: Limit mixed concentrate intake to 1% of the body mass (2 kg/220 kg head of cattle/day) plus ad libhay/roughage or winter pasture.
• Day 3-4: Limit mixed concentrate intake to 1,4% of the body mass (3 kg/220 kg head of cattle/day) plus ad lib hay/
