Chemical composition, fermentation characteristics, digestibility and intake of forage silages: changes in relation to the initial green forage



Chemical composition, fermentation characteristics, digestibility and intake of forage silages: changes in relation to the initial green forage



Annales de Zootechnie 22(1): 1-35



Between 1966 and 1969 in France silage was made from forages of known digestibility and voluntary intake by sheep. Of the 87 silages 11 were of cocksfoot, 17 of tall fescue, 8 of timothy, 14 of perennial ryegrass, 12 of Italian ryegrass, 3 of a mixture of perennial ryegrass and timothy, 15 of natural pasture and 7 of red clover.
