Unsure of where your dairy's feeding program might be leaking money? Dr. Brouk will help you do a little detective work to identify some common sources of unseen feed costs in a dairy herd. Just a few areas he plans to cover include commodity shrink, mixer errors, refusals, and expense of inventory.

Processing Cereal Grains Fed to Dairy Cattle

Optimizing feed efficiency and income over feed costs on dairy farms is very important since feed is the highest cost associated with producing milk. Some of the primary dietary areas for achieving high feed efficiency are feeding high quality forage, providing optimum balance of protein and carbohydrates for rumen health, and high digestibility of the cereal grains.
