Cows in improvement program As usual whenever there san increase in production level on Dhia herds there san increase in the Grain feeding level too. The average Dhia cow consumed 200 pounds Grain last year. The individual Dairyman has to proceed along this line if he expects to meet the Competition and stay in business Loamy said.
