What do you reckon your total intake is?

if I work that out assuming 25% protein grass your total protein % is like 23%. Maybe room for savings with less purchased protein?
Normally work on 15kgdm of grass. Usually would be on 16% cake by now and a bit less of it but with it being so dry don’t think the grass is as high in protein as not so lush

Sorting through some old papers today from the 1990’s. The AI paperwork had licence no etc on. Interesting comparing the feed price / milk price, admittedly our constituents weren’t very good in 1995 which is when I think the costing were from. At least we don’t have to deal with the red tape of milk quotas any more!View attachment 1034739View attachment 1034741View attachment 1034743
