A note from our Nutrition Department:
As forages come off the field, the JFM nutrition department encourages you to submit samples to your JFM Dairy Sales Consultant to send to the lab for analysis. Further, make sure to check your forage dry matters regularly. Sending samples to the lab provides the nutrition team valuable information about your feed, so rations can be accurately balanced. This also helps to maximize the use of on-farm feed ingredients.
The nutrition department reminds you to make sure to tell your JFM sales consultant about any feed changes, so your ration can be updated to maintain performance. During this busy time of year, the JFM market support team is available to assist in taking samples and checking dry matters. If you find yourself running low on forage, make sure to talk to your JFM dairy team about fiber substitutes.
