Response of cows in early lactation when offered maize silage to appetite and restricted areas of pasture



Response of cows in early lactation when offered maize silage to appetite and restricted areas of pasture



Proceedings of the New Zealand Society of Animal Production 37: 39-45



One group of cows in early lactation in New Zealand grazed a fresh area of pasture each day sufficient to provide near full feeding. For 3 groups 80, 60 or 40% of this area was offered and the cows got maize silage to appetite for 5 weeks. For 11 weeks thereafter equal numbers of cows were stocked at 3.7 or 4.9/ha. Intake of maize silage increased with increase of pasture restriction and represented 37, 47 and 54% of daily intake of DM.
