Description

This study was undertaken as part of a northeast regional effort to ascertain the methods used in feeding forages and concentrates to daily animals and to determine the relative amount of labor used under various systems. Special emphasis was given to methods of handling silages on Maine farms. Information obtained from one-day-a-month timings of feeding chores by 39 dairymen over a period of 13 months permitted comparisons of labor used for various systems of feeding dairy animals.
