Vetting forages for dairy cows


, : Vetting forages for dairy cows. In Practice 6(6): 186-8, 190, 192

This discussion considers, with respect to winter rations for dairy cattle in the UK: analysis of DM, pH, protein, modified acid detergent fibre, feeding value and digestible crude protein; chemical composition of forages; balancing the digestion of forage energy and protein; on-farm evaluation of silage; production and metabolic responses of cows.
