Ration Structure Farming Note

Ration structure can influence feed intake, rumen health, overall animal health and consequently impact on yield, milk quality and fertility. These are issues that affect profitability on all farms but are particularly important in higher yielding herds with high levels of concentrate feeding.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Optimum levels of fibre
  • Mixed diets and ration structure
  • Identifying ration structure problems
  • Feed intakes and cow performance
  • Steps to improve ration structure

Issued October 2010.
