Abstract Phase feeding with maize meal in a study with organic dairy cattle resulted in a positive energy balance at the start of lactation, but in a disappointing milk production.. In the trial maize meal was used to provide cattle with extra energy at the beginning of the lactation compared to a ration with maize silage. Feed intake by maize meal-cows was higher, but milk yield lower, resulting in a positive energy balance. Cows that were fed maize silage produced more milk and realised higher returns. Concentrate allocation by using Dynamic Linear Models resulted in additional savings on concentrates. The system offers opportunities for measurement feeding of home- (or regionally-) grown crops.
