Agri-science can now tell us the exact nutrient content of feed so we can provide our cows a more nutritious diet, which makes for healthier cows and higher milk production. Genetic analysis can now tell us the quality of a cow sooner and with greater detail than standard observation. By breeding the cows and bulls with the best genetics we are creating better milking herds. Technology has given us better milking machines; some dairies are even using robots to milk cows. Computers help us track the health and care of our animals. As technology provides labor efficiency it lowers our cost of production.
