Dairy farmers across the UK can now benefit from Alltech Navigate, a new and pioneering advice service aiming to increase profit by more than 1.2p/L through reducing feed waste and optimising input utilisation.
With up to 25 percent of silage dry matter losses occurring during storage, farmers are being encouraged to focus on clamp consolidation and sealing to preserve better quality forage and reduce feed waste.
With farmers facing costly milk contract penalties for below target butterfat levels, supplementing grass with a total mixed ration (TMR) to prioritise rumen health could pay dividends, according to a leading expert.
Although feed is the single biggest cost for UK dairy businesses, accounting for 60 percent of variable costs, industry research suggests it is one of the most under-utilised inputs, with as much as 45 percent of its potential lost from field to cow.
Farmers are being encouraged to pay close attention to detail when opening the clamp to minimise feed waste, maximise cow performance and bolster the bottom line.
