Direct cut and wilted silage for dairy cows in late lactation



Direct cut and wilted silage for dairy cows in late lactation



The challenge: efficient dairy production Proceedings of the conference organized by the Australian and New Zealand Societies of Animal Production March 25-28-1985, Albury Wodonga, Australia: 120-121



Silage from ryegrass/white clover cut direct (18% DM) or wilted (32% DM) and double chopped (short) or flail-cut (long) was given to 32 cows for 28 days at 100 or 80% of voluntary intake. Short chopping increased DM intake without affecting milk yield or composition. Wilting increased av. daily ad lib. DM intake from 9.4 to 12.1 kg but only increased milk yield from 7.9 to 8.3 kg.
