This is a difficult newsletter to write with so many factors affecting the farm in play. It is even more difficult with your farm business on the line. We have been through both low and high milk prices and high grain prices times before. Farms survived then and will now but not without some change. An old farmer is saying that “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.”
If you are not there, one of the key steps is to maximize the milk produced by the least expensive feeds. In short, you want more money for your efforts which is not the same as more milk.
