Some dairymen find that feeding grass
silage during summer works better
than chopping fresh grass daily. They
take less risk with wet weather, which
can keep them out of fields, and forage
quality is more uniform throughout
the summer. When using fresh green
chopped grass, it's difficult to schedule
the forage production program to give
highest quality grass when needed.
With a drylot feeding operation you'll want to provide plenty
of premium quality hay all the time. For many dairymen this
is the secret to their excellent herd production averages. Ef
forts spent in growing, harvesting or buying premium qual
ity forage can often make the difference between an 8,000
and a 10,000 plus herd average. Newer type ground-level
hay storage buildings, from which cows can be self-fed, can
save you a lot of time and let you handle more cows.
Here'* a typical loafing barn used with drylot dairy opera
tions in this part of the country. Cows are easy to keep clean
in this type setup as long as the loafing area is kept well
bedded and adjoining concrete lots are kept clean. Loafing
barn should provide 40 to 50 square feet of area per cow,
depending on their size.
For a drylot dairy operation you'll need to provide plenty of
lot and feeder space. Overcrowding can hurt production and
create unnecessary management problems. Cows will need
24 to 30 inches of feeder space per head unless they have
access to roughage all the time. In this case, they'll need
only 15 to 18 inches each. In terms of lot space, figure on a
minimum of 75 to 100 square feet per cow in addition to
about 20 square feet of holding area near milking parlor.
