article description
Dairy cow herd enterprise records from Kansas Farm Management Association farms over the past 4 years have shown an increase in returns to labor and management from $252 to $355 per cow. Returns for higher milkproducing cows were over $400 each. Cost per hundred weight of milk produced per cow for the higher-producing herds compared with lower-producing herds was about the same. In 1994, for every extra $1.00 spent on feed and other variable costs, the higher-producing herds earned $1.28.; Dairy Day, 1995, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, 1995; Typo of author's name L.
