A new study by University of Wisconsin researchers offers a look at the impact that various technologies have on dairy farm business performance. For example, authors found that income per cow was significantly higher for farms that use recombinant bovine somatotropin, feed a TMR and have free-stall housing and a pit parlor or flat barn compared to those who use a pipeline system.

Use the study findings to help evaluate the adoption of new technology for your dairy. For complete results, follow this link (PDF format).
