Feeding of dairy cows with maize silage. Intake and production: influence of height of cutting of maize and the distribution of hay, urea or brewers grain supplement



Feeding of dairy cows with maize silage. Intake and production: influence of height of cutting of maize and the distribution of hay, urea or brewers grain supplement



Revue de l' Agriculture 28(3): 593-624



In 16-week trials in 1972-3, there was no significant difference between maize DM content, digestibility and chemical composition or milk production, milk fat and protein content with dairy cows fed on maize cut at 13 or 38 cm. In trials in 1972-4, addition of grass hay to a maize silage diet significantly reduced maize silage intake by cows, but had no effect on milk production or milk fat and protein content.
