With surplus milk and Price supports what they Are along with higher prices for what he has to buy. It is essential that he does a capable Job of management. After All. The Dairyman is in the Dairy business to make Money. When you consider that the average Dairyman has an investment of around s1300.00 in each cow. It stands to reason that he must see that records Are kept and an outstanding Job be done in getting the amount of Nilk out of each cow that has been bred into her. Purina has evolved through years of study of our own Grade Herd that on a Good sound pro Gram of sound management Good Breeding careful Sanita Tion and Good feeding the Dairy Man can reasonably set a goal of per Day per cow profit Over feed Cost or 530.00 per month per cow profit Over feed Cost.

Profits then Are determined by just three things. 1. Amount of milk sold. 2. Price of milk. And 3. Cost to produce. Since the Price of milk is out of our control let s work on the other two profit influencing fac tors i.e., amount of milk sold and the Cost to produce that milk. The amount of milk produced is controlled by four factors 1. Body weight in form of milk making ability. 2. Body Condi Tion carried into lactation. 3. Body condition she keeps thru lactation. The first two factors Are taken care of through proper conditioning of the cow through her dry period which we will take up in our next column. The third Factor is taken care of through a proper Leeding schedule during her milking period. The most important fac Tor that the Dairyman has tha control of is his Cost to produce 100 pounds of milk. This Cost is determined by four fac tors. 1. Cost of Grain Hay. Pas Ture and silage. 2. Ratio of Grain fed to milk produced. 3. Average milk per cow. And 4. Ratio of dry cows to milk info cows. Tie dairymen in this area who Are on our Dpi get a monthly picture of their opera Tion and have direct control Over the four factors listed above.
