generally considered that a higher
milk yield will always necessitate
a higher level of supplementation,
but this is only one of the variables
that need to be taken into account.
In contrast, higher levels are almost
invariably recommended for
specific cases, as will be explained
below. In general, most veteran
nutritionists prefer to err
on the side of over-supplementation with fat-soluble
vitamins, perhaps thinking
any savings on vitamins
might not be a reason good
enough to risk losing a
customer - and as we all
know, nutrition is always
blamed first for all kinds
of trouble. Nevertheless,
this does not mean this is
the correct approach as
vitamins are not free of
charge and, in an industry
that strives constantly for
profits, everything counts.

Water-soluble vitamins
Here research is even more
confusing, but we would not
expect anything less for an
animal like the cow, which has
its own nutrient factory - the
rumen. Indeed, some research has
indicated that extra niacin, for
example, can warranty a higher
milk yield, but other reports
mentioned niacin does not survive
the rumen. Is it then the bugs
that need more niacin? Here it is
interesting to note that protected
niacin did not offer as much
benefit in some trials as it did in

others. Perhaps we should start
discussing B vitamin nutrition
for rumen function and not for
milk yield? Nevertheless, some
B vitamins (often protected) are
supplied to high-yielding cows
and these include niacin, choline
and biotin. The latter is also
recommended for hoof problems
as part of a more general leg

health program. Other B vitamins may also be found in some
high-end premixes for marketing
purposes. Finally, some believe
that one of the major roles yeast
played in rumen health is the
provision of B vitamins to the
rumen bacteria. So, there is a lot
that we still do not know about
rumen function and B vitamins.
