Nutritive value and milk production in silages of Guinea grass cv. Likoni, star grass and King grass without molasses



Nutritive value and milk production in silages of Guinea grass cv. Likoni, star grass and King grass without molasses



Pastos y Forrajes 8(2): 297-305



In feeding trials with 9 Holstein X Zebu cows and 18 half bred sheep, intake, digestibility and milk production of silage of (a) Guinea grass Likoni, (b) star grass (Cynodon plectostachyus) Tocumen and (c) King grass (Pennisetum purpureum X P. americanum) were investigated. (a) and (b) were ensiled at 60 days and (c) at 80 days, with no additives. Daily milk production was 5.6, 4.6 and 4.0 kg/cow for (a), (b) and (c), resp.
