cows eating

Despite the work of Mike Hutjens and Victor Cabrera, most consultants and producers have not taken the time and made the effort to collect feed efficiency information, in reference to your January 20, 2014, article, "Think dairy, not feed, efficiency."

As an educator, I have not been convincing enough to get them to push the issue with their resource team. We all can do better. This goes way beyond dry matter intake. The list of items that interact is large. Knowing what your feed efficiency is and doing something about it separates the men from the boys.
