Maize silage and/or wilted grass silage in the feed of beef cattle (bulls). Influence on growth, feed conversion rates and carcass quality



Maize silage and/or wilted grass silage in the feed of beef cattle (bulls). Influence on growth, feed conversion rates and carcass quality



Rapport, Proefstation voor de Rundveehouderij, Netherlands (84): 38



Four groups of bulls were fed with different combinations of maize and/or wilted grass silage, with differing levels of concentrates added. The bulls fed with maize silage had markedly better growth rates.
