Increasing milk production efficiency from pasture-based diets - Dr. Michael Dineen
Yesterday
Teagasc
Michael Dineen spoke at the Teagasc Dairy Conference 2022 about increasing milk production efficiency from pasture-based diets. High pasture inclusion levels in dairy cow diets can support an environmentally friendly system of milk production and a resilient business model for the producer. Maintaining lower pre-grazing yields, including white clover into swards and optimizing concentrate supplementation are key factors to increase the milk production efficiency of pasture-based systems. https://www.teagasc.ie/media/website/publications/2022/National-Dairy-Conference-2022-Optimised.pdf

Yesterday
Teagasc
At the Teagasc Dairy Conference 2022, Dr. Emer Kennedy spoke about management and housing guidelines to achieving excellent calf welfare. As well as adhering to good colostrum and transition milk management, it is important that all calves are provided with fresh water and concentrate from birth as this will help encourage rumen development. Feeding management practices should be standardised across all calves on the farm. Catering for all aspects of nutrition and feeding sufficient milk during early life not only helps promote high welfare standards, but also improves calf growth and vitality. https://www.teagasc.ie/media/website/publications/2022/National-Dairy-Conference-2022-Optimised.pdf

Yesterday
Teagasc
At the Teagasc Dairy Conference 2022, Dr. Deirdre Hennessy presented on Nitrogen strategy on clover swards - what does the research say? Incorporating white clover into grassland swards is an effective way of maintaining herbage production when chemical N fertiliser application is reduced. Reducing chemical N application reduces nitrous oxide emissions. Grass-clover swards receiving 150 kg N/ha have similar or greater herbage production than grass-only swards receiving 250 kg N/ha. The Moorepark long-term clover research shows that milk solids production is greater on grass-clover swards compared to grass only-swards. https://www.teagasc.ie/media/website/publications/2022/National-Dairy-Conference-2022-Optimised.pdf

Michael Fitzgerald, Teagasc Advisor explains that farmer clients are making use of apps to gather information.
