Optimizing Productivity From Pasture Based Systems – A Case Study For High Forage Feeding Levels
Dineen, M.; McCarthy, B.; Van Amburgh, M. E.
An overview of the management practices implemented in intensive pasture based systems to optimize dry matter intake and milk solids production will be discussed. Additionally, the benefits of in-depth feed chemical composition analysis will be discussed with examples of how this data, in synchrony with the CNCPS, can help unlock a greater understanding of the biology of the grazing dairy cow.
