New feed improves dairy cow yield

Dutch researchers have developed a dairy nutrition model designed to boost milk yields and milk fat in view of the abolition of the EU milk quota system on 1 April 2015. The head of ruminant nutrition at Schothorst Feed Research (SFR) said, “Many dairy farmers in north-western Europe, anticipating the end of the cap on production come April this year, have been investing in their facilities and herd expansion. In this context, we have been carrying out research aimed at helping those more cash-strapped farmers with feeding strategies to generate higher yields and milk with higher fat content, which is no longer penalised and thus a viable goal for producers post quota.” To read further, click HERE.
