Because it improves milk production and the overall health of livestock, feeding quality forages raises the productivity of livestock operations. This timely publication helps you to calculate the cost of homegrown forages and their value against the cost of purchasing high-quality forages. Along with handy worksheets to help you work through the estimate, you’ll learn how to determine moisture content, storage loss, and crude protein, and their overall effect on forage value/price calculations.
