In light of this situation and with no immediate relief in sight, dairymen dairymen need to buy feed carefully and wisely. When buying feeds, determine which of the available feeds provide provide nutrients at the least cost. While feeds may-be nearly the same cost, one may be a better buy because of the energy and protein it supplies. , Milo is the cheapest energy feed available in most areas of Oklahoma. Oklahoma. Corn in most areas is priced high enough that it is not as economical economical as milo or barley for the basic grain in a dairy mix. Oats are rather high and should be used on a limited basis.
