Freezing Point Depression

Milk Protein Farming Note

Milk protein often has greater financial benefits than butterfat within payment schemes, although protein percentage is less variable and harder to manipulate. Milk protein percentage is dependant on dietary carbohydrate supply, but has low priority in the body, similar to fertility.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Protein formation
  • Energy and protein supply
  • Actions to adjust milk protein levels

Issued April 2013.
