High feed prices last year caused many dairymen to feed their herds poor quality roughages and to reduce both the quantity and quality of concentrates. The result was much lower milk production in many herds all over the state. In some cases, reduced milk production due to poor feeding practices resulted in less income above feed cost than if the feeding program had remained the same (in spite of high feed prices).
