"The first thing that hit me...was the reduction in waste."

Michael Schulz feeds his 500 dairy cows a high-hay TMR
with his Patz 800 Series Twin Screw Vertical Mixer.
Michael Schulz runs a 500-head organic dairy operation at Timboon in the rolling country of Western Victoria, Australia. In addition to certified organic milk, he produces organic cheese and yogurt to sell at local delicatessens, independent supermarkets, and farmers' markets.

To ensure his herd receives a well-balanced, nutritious diet, Michael purchased a 620 cu. ft. Patz 800 Series Twin Screw Vertical Mixer to process his high-hay rations. After his cows began consuming the thorough, consistent TMR from his Patz Mixer, Michael saw results almost immediately. "The first thing that hit me like a slap in the face was the reduction in waste," he said. Hay waste had decreased dramatically, from 35% down to 5%.

The next benefits Michael experienced were a boost in butterfat components and a sizeable increase in milk production of 1,000 liters per day! He reported, "My butterfat went from a low of 3.1% butterfat for the past two years in late winter and early spring to a healthy 3.9 or 4.0%, which is a reflection on the improved animal nutrition that my Patz Mixer provides."
