Optimizing milk production requires an advanced feeding strategy. The right feeding system is vital to produce a high milk yield and to ensure healthier cows. Providing a well mixed ration makes it more difficult for cows to separate and sort the ingredients to pick out their favourite foods. Well mixed rations help the farmer to ensure that the cow eats the balanced feed, improving dry matter intake and stimulating higher levels of milk production.

mdc4.mdc.mo.gov Go to our website for more Handy Hints info. A good backyard bird habitat will have something for everyone. Mourning doves, cardinals, and sparrows…among others…prefer to forage for food on the ground and rarely visit traditional bird feeders. But you can still provide for them with a simple ground feeder! You’ll need wood…like this rough-sawn cedar…a 20-inch square of aluminum house screen…nails…a staple gun and staples. Following the instructions, carefully measure and cut out the sixteen segments. After you assemble the first, inner, square…stretch the screen over it from one bottom outside edge to the other. Staple the screen in place along the outside edge. Then assemble the rest of the feeder. Slide the screened floor into the base, where it rests on top of the legs, and fill it with a mix of sunflower seeds, millet and milo. Rotting seed isn’t a problem because the water drains through the screen…and when the feeder needs cleaning, all you have to do is lift the floor out and hose it off.
