Abstract
Fresh beet pulp was pressed to 13% moisture and ensiled in trenches without or with 2% molasses or 30% beet tops. Proximate composition of the fresh pressed pulp, and the pulp ensiled without or with molasses or beet tops was, respectively, crude protein 10.3, 10.1, 9.8 and 9.8; fat 0.8, 2.2, 2.0 and 1.2; crude fibre 21.5, 23.1, 20.2 and 31.5; nitrogen-free extract 63.1, 59.6, 62.2 and 50.7; ash 4.3, 6.0, 5.8 and 6.8%; feed units 1.14, 0.96, 0.98 and 0.84/kg; and digestible protein 51, 50, 49 and 51 g/kg. Young bulls given pressed pulp silage gained 913 g daily, which was 1.38% greater than in controls. Average daily bodyweight gain of Polish Red bulls given daily 50 kg ensiled pulp and 1.5 kg grains concentrate was the same (864 vs. 866 g) as that of controls given 40 kg ensiled pulp and 2.5 kg grain concentrate, but the test group took 1.7 compared with 2.9 kg concentrates/kg gain.
