Microprocessor based farm management system for dairy family farms

Microprocessor based farm management system for dairy family farms

Livestock environment III Proceedings of the 3rd international livestock environment symposium, Toronto, Canada, 25-27 April 1988: 242-247

With the intensive use of automatic concentrate dispensers, problems have arisen with ration calculations based on milk yields. To overcome these problems, a multivariant estimation program was used with a microcomputer to predict the DM intake of individual cows. These data were then used to calculate the required concentrates for each cow.
