Abstract

The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate effects of feeding and manure management interventions on the technical, economic, and environmental performance of Indonesian dairy farms, and to assess the adoption potential of these interventions. Various interventions were tested on 18 practical dairy farms in Lembang Sub-District in West Java, Indonesia. Results showed that ration balancing, mineral supplementation, feeding high quality compound concentrate feed, and (vermi-) composting have potential to improve the profitability of dairy farming, health of dairy cows, and/or reduce environmental pollution of dairy farming.
