High Yielding Cows – Effective Spring Rations Farming Note

It is important to view the pros and cons of grass in dairy cow rations as you would any other feed. For high yielding cows, grazed grass can't provide all the nutrients but can help reduce feed costs. Maintaining a high standard of grassland management is essential to produce sufficient high quality grass and ensure efficient utilisation.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The costs of spring grass
  • Realistic dry matter intakes at grass
  • Feeding strategies at different yields
  • Supplementing the cow

Issued May 2012.
