Abstract The dietary crude protein requirement for high producing dairy cattle (30 to 50 kg milk/d) ranges from 14 to 22% of dietary DM. The concentration of protein needed in the diet of cows can be expected to increase in the future as management technology and genetic selection further enhance milk producing ability. Protein can increase milk yield by providing more amino acids, by increasing available energy, and by altering efficiency of utilization of absorbed nutrients.
