Replacement ratios of maize silage and concentrates in feeding dairy cows



Replacement ratios of maize silage and concentrates in feeding dairy cows



Poljoprivredna Znanstvena Smotra 29: 667-678



In a Latin square design 12 cows were given feeds in which 10% of the net energy was supplied by lucerne hay and 90% by concentrate, or with 10, 30 or 50% by maize silage at the expense of concentrate. Silage increased milk yield and its fat content. With no silage 1 kg total starch equivalent (SE) produced 1.80 kg fat-corrected milk, and with 10, 30 or 50% silage the yield was 1.83, 1.95 and 2.02 kg. Corresponding values for SE above maintenance were 3.32, 3.36, 3.84 and 4.02 kg.
