Grains2Milk Supplementary Feeds

Home-grown or bought-in silages, hays, grains / concentrates and other feeds are used on most dairy farms to supplement pasture, forages and crops. They can be used to manage variations in feed supply, enabling higher stocking rates, and higher milk production per cow and per hectare to be achieved, while serving as tools to better manage pastures, cow body condition, fertility and milk composition.
