DAIRY HERD FEED STOCKS

 

Recent research by the Victorian Department of Primary Industries (DPI) have demonstrated that the traditional use of grape wine marc as a feed stock for dairy cows has multiple benefits.

 

Cows fed with winery marc increased fatty acid content and milk production by 5% along with decreased methane output of 20%

 

The benefit to the wine industry is a relatively easy way of disposing of their waste.

 

Traditionally farmers in wine regions have fed cattle & dairy herds with grape wine marc, the waste seeds, skins & stalks, but there’s a limit to the use of such feed supplements.

 

Checks on the sources & integrity of grape marc are a necessity to ensure that residues are not being transferred to the meat or milk.
