Hoard's Dairyman's Crops and Forage E-source provides management information to dairy herd owners about growing top quality feeds for dairy cows. It starts with soil and nutrients, and applies to corn silage, alfalfa and corn silage. Testing of forages helps balance nutrient intake in dairy cow rations and storage of roughages affects feed quality. Comparing costs of custom crop work also helps farmers calculate total feed costs.
