Cows fed a High Sugar Grass diet have shown increases of up to 262 gallons more milk per cow annually.
Increased intake from grazing and extremely high forage yields means less reliance on higher-cost seed and food sources like corn.
Input costs are lower due to savings on herbicides and the reduced need for minerals, additives or lower quality (lignified) forage.
Extra forage yields can extend the grazing season and reduce winter feed costs.
"Our latest planting in a field that is usually a four feeding field has been extended to a five feeding field. When the cows go into that field, they have been up in milk every time this grazing season."
