The aim of this project is to measure the optimal amount of hulless barley to replace some of the grain corn in dairy cow rations without affecting milk production and milk components (fat, protein, and urea). This project was initiated by Agrinova, and IRDA was in charge of the economic analysis.
Conduct a partial cost analysis of substituting hulless barley for grain corn in dairy cow rations
From 2017 to 2019
This project will help reduce production costs, while boosting the competitiveness of dairy farmers.
