Research from the university of british columbia animal welfare program confirms what many dairy producers already know — cows should have fresh feed waiting for them upon their return from the parlor.

The study, reported in the December Journal of Dairy Science, also found that feed bunk attendance was higher during the day and early evening compared to late night and early morning.
