The association of maize silage with urea: the effect on the ammonia content of the rumen fluid, the N flow in the duodenum, the nitrogen and energy balances and the milk production



The association of maize silage with urea: the effect on the ammonia content of the rumen fluid, the N flow in the duodenum, the nitrogen and energy balances and the milk production



Archiv für Tierernahrung 34(3): 227-235



In several trials feeding value of maize silage supplemented with urea was compared with that of unsupplemented silage (control). In 2 dry cows with permanent rumen cannula ammonia was measured in rumen fluid. Rapid hydrolysis of urea produced high NH3 concentrations, but the control diet did not supply enough fermentable nitrogen for the rumen flora.
