Effects of length of cut of whole crop corn silage on milk production in dairy cows. II. Effects on milk yield, milk composition and ruminal VFA during long-term feeding



Effects of length of cut of whole crop corn silage on milk production in dairy cows. II. Effects on milk yield, milk composition and ruminal VFA during long-term feeding



Bulletin of the National Institute of Animal Industry, Japan (45): 7-12



Maize was harvested in Oct. 1981 at yellow ripeness, cut to 6 or 24 mm and ensiled. From Jan. to April 1982 twenty eight Holstein-Friesian cows in 2 groups were given the silages mixed 1:1 (DM basis) with commercial compound feed (11.9% digestible crude protein; 67% TDN) to cover standards for maintenance and production.
