RESEARCH SHOWS WITH A LOW MILK PRICE YOU NEED MORE GRASS IN THE DIET TO BE PROFITABLE.
"OPEX increases $1/kg MS for every 10% reduction in the proportion of grazed grass in the diet, even though feed costs would only be expected to increase by 30 to 40c/kg MS. This highlights the dangers of marginal analyses, with non-feedcosts associated with feeding supplements at least equal to the actual cost of the supplement, and quite possibly more."
