Increase farm profits with the right cow feed
Independent nutrition profits your dairy farm
Feed spend is by far the biggest cost for dairy farmers and it is a spend that merits significant care. Our benchmark spend on concentrates is currently 27% of milk sales, but the range we have seen recently from 20% to 44%, an eye watering amount. We are motivated by driving your dairy farm profits and it’s in our interests to keep your percentage spend low.
At Douglas Green Consulting we are one of the few firms who do not profit from supplying feeds or supplements, so we only advise what is needed to drive performance profitability. Most nutritionist have a vested interest in which feeds you use and how much, but not us.
Our diets link in to our budgeted feed use and this in turn links to our costings and budgets. We calculate the total amount and cost of each input over the year and so accurately budget the spend.
These requirements link to cropping plans, and the costs per tonne of dry matter you can achieve for the various forages.
- Is maize the best value feed to grow?
- Would whole crop be a viable alternative?
We explore with you total feed costs and forage quality, but just concentrates.
