Boosting milk proteins to fulfil cheesemaking contract

Boosting milk proteins to fulfil cheesemaking contract January 2021

Last summer, Jason and Becky Mills had to increase their milk solids to meet their buyer’s new requirements. They did this through a range of management changes, most significant of which was feeding protected methionine.

Like many producers, Jason and Becky Mills—who milk 140 Holsteins at Eastwood Farm, near Torrington in Devon—have had to address the requirement to increase the quality of their milk.

They had lots of warning that their buyer’s ‘standard litre’ for their cheese contract was increasing to 4.2% fat and 3.4% protein in spring 2020. So they started taking action in plenty of time.
