Energy consumption on dairy farms



Energy consumption on dairy farms



Jaarverslag 1979, Proefstation voor de Rundveehouderij: 93-99



Energy consumption on modern dairy farms is computed for 15 farm situations, starting from a basic situation where 46.5 loose-housed cows yielding 6000 kg milk/yr graze day and night at 2.24 cows/ha on a farm with 25 ha permanent grassland fertilized with 400 kg N/ha. In this situation total energy input/kg milk is 7.95 MJ, of which 44% is concentrates, 29.1% artificial fertilizer and 8.1% electricity, giving energy costs of 7.2 Dutch cents/kg milk.
