Improving feed efficiency in dairy cattle

The United States dairy pro­duction has continued to grow despite competition for land and other agricultural resources from other agronomic and livestock/poultry alternatives. More ef­ficient utilization of resources has now become a major objective of many dairies as they increase the size of their dairy herd despite a limited land base. In the Midwest and Northeast U.S. this growth has been driven by increases in use of corn silage, increased percentage of forage in the ration, and increased use of by-product feeds. Recently, the more profitable and successful dairy enterprises are placing focus on feed efficiency.
