2003 BUSINESS DAIRY GRAZING FARM BUSINESS ANALYSIS SUMMARY

This report summarizes the financial and production records of 9 dairy grazing farms across Michigan. Intensive grazing implies providing as much of the needed roughages from pasture. These 9 farms indicated that they grazed dairy cows at least three months of the year and that grazing provided more than 30 percent of the forage consumed during the year. To be included, the farms must have produced at least 50 percent of gross cash farm income from milk and dairy animal sales. The farms in this report were located throughout Michigan. The records came from Michigan State University�s TelFarm/MicroTel project, the Farm Credit Service system, or by AgriSolutions in Michigan. The values were pooled into averages for reporting purposes. Farm records checked for accuracy. While considerable variation in the data exists, average values are reported in the summary tables and discussion that follow.
