The dry matter pounds saved with the nutrient dense approach of Microbiology Nutrition is an opportunity that tightens down costs, while still being able to put milk in the tank.

The industry shares that producers need a feed efficiency of 1.5 pounds of milk, or greater to be profitable. This means that for every pound of feed fed on a dry matter basis, the cow is making at least 1.5 pounds of milk from it.  The below chart shows the feed efficiencies from varying production levels and dry matter intakes:
               90lbsof milk / 45lbs DMI = 2.0lbs of milk per dry matter pound
               90lbsof milk / 68lbs DMI = 1.3lbs of milk per dry matter pound
               75lbsof milk / 45lbs DMI = 1.6lbs of milk per dry matter pound
               68lbsof milk / 52lbs DMI = 1.3lbs of milk per dry matter pound
