I know imperial units to some extent (gallons, lb, oz, feet, inches, miles, pts and fl.oz, acres) alhough at my age we were taught metric in school but everyone still used imperial (Britain). Then moved to NZ which is entirely metric and learned the kilometres, hectare, metres, litres, kg system.
Which is why I was a little thrown to see on this forum recently that a US gallon is not an imperial gallon. Have you got any more anomalies like that to trip me up?
Proverbs: it depends on what sort of Holsteins you've got, but 22 - 23 litres isn't an unusual peak for grassfed Holstein herds in NZ - and that's on top quality grass in late spring. Herds doing much more than that per cow are probably being given a supplementary feed on top.
