In this post I am going to show you how to properly feed dairy cows to get maximum milk yield and economic returns.  The same practices are used by successful dairy farmers to achieve high milk production and have been proven to work time and again. Of importance to the dairy cow are nutritional requirements, quantities and qualities of feed, feed sources, rations and other dynamics. You will need to be equiped with information about the cows’ milking performance, body size, body condition, stage of lactation, feeding habits and feed preferences to be able to properly feed the cows.

Commercial dairy farming may not be in your league if you are going to approach it indifferently. But this is not to discourage because on the contrary, commercial dairy farming can be fun and rewarding if approached the right way.
