Roasted Grain For Dairy
Adding roasted grains into the dairy cattle's feed provides numerous benefits. It will provide an increase in butter fat, and an increase in lactation (by about 800 pounds, some studies show). Not only does it increase milk production on less feed, but it also will improve the herds health, provide healthier calves (which then lessens vet expenses), but also improve appearance.
