Improving milk production from the main roughages in Chugoku area. III. The effect of the quality of Italian ryegrass silage on milk production



Improving milk production from the main roughages in Chugoku area. III. The effect of the quality of Italian ryegrass silage on milk production



Bulletin of Hyogo Prefectural Experiment Station of Animal Husbandry (16): 28-31



In a 3 X 3 Latin square design trial with 21 day periods 6 cows were offered silage of Italian ryegrass with high (78 or 85%) or low (34 or 50%) moisture content, or 1st or 2nd cut grass. All cows received 5 kg concentrates daily. Daily DM intake of low moisture silage was 30% higher than intake of high moisture silage; DM intake from 1st cut grass was higher but that of 2nd cut grass lower than DM intake of high moisture silage.
