Finishing of store lambs on silage-based diet. 2. Influence of breed-type, lamb weight and length of the finishing period on feed intake and lamb performance



Finishing of store lambs on silage-based diet. 2. Influence of breed-type, lamb weight and length of the finishing period on feed intake and lamb performance



Irish Journal of Agricultural Research 25(3): 347-361



In 2 experiments 2 cuts of silage from perennial ryegrass and white clover sward were untreated, treated with formic acid or wilted for 24 h before ensiling with a double-chop harvester. The silages were given freely to groups of 24 lowland store lambs and supplemented with concentrates at 0, 350 or 700 g daily. Galway and Suffolk crossbred lambs were compared on each treatment. Each breed type was subdivided into heavy and light lambs.
