Managing Feed Costs

Managing Feed Costs

Feed is the largest single cost in producing milk. Hence, dairy farmers must review their feeding program to see if there is any way to reduce these costs. One should only make changes to the rations after a thorough review of the feeding program. Besides that, the impact of change on other aspects of the overall operation should also be taken into account.
