Forage species for silage. 2. Nutritive value and quality of the silage of cultivars of maize (Zea mays L.), sorghum (Sorghum sp.) and pearl millet (Pennisetum americanum Schum)



Forage species for silage. 2. Nutritive value and quality of the silage of cultivars of maize (Zea mays L.), sorghum (Sorghum sp.) and pearl millet (Pennisetum americanum Schum)



Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Zootecnia 7(2): 183-195



In a trial in Guaiba, Rio Grande do Sul, fresh herbage of 4 maize cv., 4 sorghum and 4 pearl millet was ensiled in experimental polythene silos when the DM content was about 30%. Pearl millet had the highest contents of CP (9.32-11.99%) and DM digestibility (58.01-64.14%) in the original herbage DM; maize had CP contents of 8.35-8.92% and DM digestibility of 56.98-57.33%; sorghum had the lowest CP content (7.11-7.13%) and DM digestibility (46.46-49.63%).
