Effects of dietary forage proportion on digestive function in maintenance-fed beef cows. 3. Bermudagrass and clover hays



Effects of dietary forage proportion on digestive function in maintenance-fed beef cows. 3. Bermudagrass and clover hays



Archiv für Tierernahrung 37(11): 1009-1020



In a Latin square design of trial 5 Hereford X Aberdeen-Angus cows with rumen and duodenal cannulae were given diets with ratios of Bermuda grass (B) : clover (C) hays of 0:1, 0.25:0.75, 0.5:0.5, 0.75:0.25 and 1:0. Feed intake was 85% of free intake of B (1.35% of body weight). For B and C contents of nitrogen, neutral detergent fibre (NDF) and acid detergent lignin (ADL) were 1.88 and 2.30, 79.6 and 55.3 and 5.2 and 6.3%, respectively.
