Voluntary intake and efficiency of utilisation of whole-crop maize silage



Voluntary intake and efficiency of utilisation of whole-crop maize silage



Animal Feed Science and Technology 1(2/3): 441-454



Intake and nutritive value of maize silage are reviewed. Ensiling of whole-crop maize was associated with major changes in composition which appeared to be detrimental to nutritive value; the most important were the production of organic acids and the degradation of plant protein to non-protein N. Intake could be increased by restricting fermentation, particularly by ensiling the crop at 30-35% DM.
