New online dairy calculator from Cargill

August 13, 2019

Cargill has launched a new online calculator for dairy farmers to quickly and conveniently analyze their milk component efficiency. The tool can be accessed at cargilldairydreams.com/calculator. “Component efficiency is a real measure of dairy herd efficiency. Dairy farmers can see how well their cows are converting pounds of feed into pounds of milk components,” said Mike Messman, Dairy Technical Services Manager at Cargill. “To do the calculation by hand requires a few mathematical steps so we wanted to simplify the process and ensure all dairy farmers could calculate this for themselves at any time.”
