Hear just a few of the success stories from dairy farmers we've helped increase ECM and lower feed costs.
Today the herd is averaging 102 pounds of milk, 4.28 butterfat and 3.2 percent protein. ECM (Energy Corrected Milk and Feed Efficiency) is now at 110.74 pounds, a jump of more than 18 pounds, which has significantly improved the bottom line.

It didn’t take long for Christianson to see significant improvement. “We knew we were onto something because four days after the switch the cows were up 11 pounds in the tank. In less than two months they were up over 100 pounds,” said Williams.

“The results from switching to Barton Kiefer Dairy Consulting have been impressive to the say the least. Within 2 months of switching our average milk production was at 102 lbs. We saw a 15 pound plus average increase in milk and components also increased, which I had hoped we would accomplish. Plus, our pregnancy rate also increased. Learning to feed different types of grasses has also helped my nutrient management practices in manure applications on those acres.”
