Voluntary intake and milk production obtained with maize silage, grass silage, prewilted grass silage and grass hay fed to dairy cows



Voluntary intake and milk production obtained with maize silage, grass silage, prewilted grass silage and grass hay fed to dairy cows



Revue de l' Agriculture 28(2): 337-355



3 trials were carried out to determine the voluntary intake of maize silage, 1st-cut Italian ryegrass silage, prewilted Italian ryegrass silage and Italian ryegrass hay by dairy cows. Each trial was carried out with 15 cows of 3 different breeds for 18 weeks. Cows were fed the experimental forages ad lib. and concentrates were varied according to milk production, intake of roughage, body weight and number of lactation.
