Ivan Klabunde, tester in the Todd County DHIA, reports an average production of 27.5 pounds of butterfat per cow during July. An average of 769.5 pounds of milk were produced by the 418 cows that were tested. Average butterfat test for the month was 3.57 percent. This slight increase in test was possibly due to several factors but primarily because a large number of cows were nearing the end of their lactation period.
