How can a cow produce milk from grass alone?



How can a cow produce milk from grass alone?



Fourrages Actualites (22): 17-20



Units of energy used for calculating nutritive value of forage and supplementary feed are defined and the feeding values of natural grassland, cocksfoot, tall fescue and Italian and perennial ryegrass at 4 growth stages are tabulated. It is calculated that a 600 kg-cow in the 2nd month of lactation would require 19.2 kg DM from good grass to produce 30 kg of milk.
