An evaluation of three stages of maturity of hay fed with two concentrate levels for lactating dairy cows



An evaluation of three stages of maturity of hay fed with two concentrate levels for lactating dairy cows



Canadian Journal of Animal Science 63(3): 623-629



Brome-lucerne hay was cut on 10 June, 30 June and 22 July at 10% bloom, 50% bloom and full bloom or early seed set. Voluntary intake by Hereford steers in g DM/W0.75 were 127.9, 128.1 and 114.0, respectively. DM digestibility was 70.7, 67.0 and 58.0%, crude protein digestibility 70.8, 66.4 and 53.3% and total digestible nutrients 69.0, 66.5 and 56.6%.
