FARMERS WHO WANT TO IMPROVE the use of their dairy
chore labor face many alternative choices in feeding methods, milking
systems, and general husbandry practices. This bulletin provides labor
data to help these farmers evaluate some alternatives in loose housing.
For instance, it shows how labor needs for hay feeding vary by season,
feeding frequency, and storage location. Silage feeding and green
chopping choices are presented in a similar manner. Information on
over a dozen different milking arrangements is also included.
