Mid-late lactation cows use a greater proportion of their nutrient intake to replenish lost body reserves rather than increase milk production. Research at AFBI Hillsborough has shown that when cows have reached 150 days in milk and are in good condition (BCS >2.5), protein levels can be reduced from 17.3% to as low as 14.4% without impacting on milk production. So managing high yielding and stale cows in separate groups provides some scope to reduce protein inputs. Before protein levels can be reduced, the challenge is to provide cows with the means to utilize protein from grass silage more efficiently. Achieving the correct balance between slowly fermentable fibre and rapidly fermented starch is key.
