Dairy feed analysis results from Dr. Karen L. Jacobsen's Farmer-to-Farmer assignment with Partners of the Americas, March, 2012 are below.  Please scroll down to the bottom of the page for the results.
As a Farmer to Farmer volunteer with Partners of the Americas, Dr. Karen Jacobsen went on an assignment to Nicaragua working with cattle nutrition. Dr. Jacobsen provided technical assistance and shared her professional expertise with dairy producers in regards to their feed rations and forage quality. Additionally, Dr. Jacobsen had 16 dairy feed samples analyzed at Dairy One Laboratory in New York so the producers can have an exact understanding of their cattle's nutrition.  The feeds analyzed included:

  Weighing Peanut Hulls on a dairy farm in Nicaragua, March, 2012 Peanut hulls are a common forage substitute for cattle feed in Nicaragua, especially because of the long dry season without rain.  Here, Dr. Karen Jacobsen is demonstrating the importance of knowing the weights of feeds offered to cattle.  A common 5-gallon bucket on the farm is weighed so that the dairyman will know the volume to weight conversion of the feed he is using.
