Intensive milk production on tropical pastures



Intensive milk production on tropical pastures



Agro, Dominican Re ic 10(91): 28-32



At the Hacienda El Jobo, El Salvador, an intensive system of milk production using Pangola grass and star grass (Cynodon plectostachyus) with concentrates developed over the past 25 yr has surpassed that of most other milk production systems in the area. Annual milk and lean beef production/ha during 1974-8 averaged 20 565 l and 202 kg, resp. Daily milk/production reached a peak of 12.8 l/cow at the end of the dry season and a min. of 10.5 l towards the end of the wet season.
