Making the most of quality forage - the job is only half done?

By Mark Price 4 years ago

Every 1,000 litres increase in milk from forage will be worth around £100 of gross margin per cow. Put simply, the more forage fed per cow per day, the more margin can be retained per litre of milk produced. This is due to the function of ruminants and their unique ability to harness energy from fibre and its cost advantage against feeding concentrates. The more efficient this process can be, the more margin can be made per milk sale.
