Producers get paid on the volume of milk produced. Poor quality forages and improper feeding regimens leave some dairy cows producing lower than their genetic potential. Finding improved methods of feeding animals and better ways to meet the animals’ daily nutrient requirements can drastically improve milk production.
By balancing rations for amino acids, dairy cattle can better meet their nutrient requirements and develop into higher producing animals. Additionally, other feed ingredients like trace minerals and antioxidants have been shown to increase milk volume in dairy cows.
