A properly formulated and managed nutrition program is an essential component of today's high-producing dairy cow. While there are many management and environmental factors that can affect on-farm productivity, a sound nutrition program provides the foundation for optimal production, reproduction, health and profitability of the lactating dairy cow.
Total feed costs account for 45-50 percent of the total production costs in a dairy business. Consequently, the ultimate goal is to identify the point at which you can minimize feed costs while maintaining optimal productivity.
