Digestion of high quality alfalfa hay of three particle lengths by lactating dairy cows



Digestion of high quality alfalfa hay of three particle lengths by lactating dairy cows



Journal of Dairy Science 67(Suppl. 1): 114



In a Latin-square trial with 3-wk periods, 6 cows were fed ad lib. 17%-crude protein diets containing long, chopped (0.78 cm) or pelleted (0.17 cm particle length) lucerne hay.
