The utilization of maize silage for intensive beef production. 2. The effect of urea on silage fermentation and on the voluntary intake and performance of young cattle fed maize silage-based diets



The utilization of maize silage for intensive beef production. 2. The effect of urea on silage fermentation and on the voluntary intake and performance of young cattle fed maize silage-based diets



Journal of Agricultural Science, UK 84(2): 365-372



Maize was cut at 22.6, 27.0 or 41.6% DM and ensiled in 4-kg quantities in polythene bags without additive or after the addition of urea at 0.5, 1.0, 1.5 or 2.0% of the crop DM content. Silos were opened at intervals up to 96 days. Maize of 23.4% DM content was ensiled in 10-t butyl rubber silos without additive or after the addition of urea at 1.0% or fishmeal at 4.0% of the crop DM content.
