Best Supplements to Increase Milk Production in Cows (Kenya)

While cows need enough food to get by, they need the right nutrition to improve their health and well-being and increase milk production.

The right nutrition includes proteins, vitamins, minerals, fiber, herbs and water.

Forage alone cannot provide all these minerals. That’s why farmers supplement their cow feed with food items that contain all these nutrients.
