Reduce feed wastage

Published 17 November 15

In a new short film by AHDB Dairy, extension officer Tom Goatman highlights what farmers can do to reduce the amount of wasted feed. 

In the short film, Tom highlights where feed waste can be reduced in the different stages of the feeding process, from silage clamp, concentrate store through to the mixing and feeding stage. 

International data suggests that up to six percent of concentrate feed and twenty percent of forage feed can be wasted on dairy farms. By implementing these simple steps farmers can make a significant impact on feed waste and feed cost on farm, aiding in the profitability of the business.
