Milk ureas.

the cows are having a fair wallop of fresh grass, @26% protein, we have dropped protein out of the ration now, apart from the cake as I can't change what's in the bin. We will turn out tomorrow, so increasing the fresh grass even more.

What levels are people happy with, I understand( correct me if I am wrong) that ureas of 0.35 and higher are not good. But what can you do to control it? Or am I worrying about nothing?

I've always been under the impression thats not true yes it's wasteful but not detrimental grass fed cows always seem to have the best fertility. If this is based on new research id be very interested to read it.
