How to feed a dairy herd

How do you explain what is involved in feeding a dairy herd? The power of grass may be easy to see but the careful mix in the daily dairy ration is more complicated. In this ‘Farming is Magic’ short film, Ben Walker shows his method for making the mixing up of cow food amazing and memorable.

Rather than just talking about it, Ben scales the process down and keeps it simple and hands-on: the ‘Pop Up Cow Kitchen’ in the corner of the feed barn is always a great success.

Visitors can see, hear, touch and get involved in mixing all the ingredients to feed one cow. By doing all this before showing the daily task of preparing feed in a mixer wagon and delivering it to the cows in the fields, Ben makes the topic of feeding a dairy herd interesting and memorable.
