Studies on the improvement in utilization of sorghum silages. 3. The effect of stage of maturity at harvest and cutting frequency on the nutritive value and yield of hybrid sorgo silage



Studies on the improvement in utilization of sorghum silages. 3. The effect of stage of maturity at harvest and cutting frequency on the nutritive value and yield of hybrid sorgo silage



Bulletin of the Faculty of Agriculture, Miyazaki University 29(2): 311-322



The nutritive value of hybrid sorghum silages cut at the boot, flowering and milk stages in 1977-80 was compared. Silage preservation was good when cut at the milk stage in all yr, but was poor when cut at the boot stage in 1978. CP, CF and neutral detergent fibre decreased and NFE, acid detergent fibre and lignin increased between the boot and milk stage. DM, CP and fibre digestibilities were greater for boot stage than milk stage silage but DM intake by goats or sheep was not affected.
