General Guidelines

As a general guideline, feed the above concentrates at a level to provide a forage-to-concentrate ratio ranging from 40:60 to 60:40 (DM basis), depending on level of milk production and stage of lactation.

For more precise feeding recommendations refer to the MilkCheck™ ration balancing guidelines for customizing your ration to meet your cow’s nutritional needs.
