What are we going to do....decrease milk price & increased grain price??

The recent announcement of a significant decrease in milk price, and now the significant increase in concentrate prices has left many within the Victorian dairy industry pondering what on earth to do?? The sort answer to this challenging question is significantly increase your Feed Conversion Efficiency (FCE). This means producing more milk (or milk solids if you like to think that way) from every kg of DM that is consumed by the cows.

In the pasture/hay/silage/concentrate dairy system, the recognised average FCE is lies somewhere between 0.9 & 1.1 litres/kg DMI (eg 5000 litres from 5000kg of food = 1:1). However, years of experience shows that year in year out this FCE should be much closer to 1.25 -1.3:1. This means getting 1.25 -1.3 litres for every kg of DM consumed. How do we achieve this i can you ask?? There is really only one means to making this happen, and that is get cows to significantly increase their DMI over and above their maintenance requirement, and the most influential time to address this issue is in the transition (Leed feed) period and early lactation (1-65 Days in Milk).....we must get cows to peak, and peak early if we are going to be successful.
