Feeding is the single largest cost driver in milk production and the figure is still increasing. It is also the most time-consuming operation after milking. Feeding costs represent around 50% of farms’ running expenses, though this may vary considerably depending on the farmer’s herd and the feeding activities.
Optimizing feed management is therefore a profitable investment – one that can substantially improve operating margins by increasing milk yield, while reducing labour and feed waste, as well improving herd reproduction and health.
