Mike Hutjens presented "Feed Efficiency-What's New?" Feed efficiency measures the ability of cows to convert dry matter into milk. There's a potential feed savings of 30 to 40 cents per cow per day when feed efficiency is understood. Sires may be selected by this criteria one day. Guidelines to improve feed efficiency were discussed. Highlights of the September ADSA Discovery Conference were shared.
