Finishing of store lambs on silage-based diets. 1. Effect of formic acid treatment or wilting and concentrate supplementation on silage intake and performance of store lambs



Finishing of store lambs on silage-based diets. 1. Effect of formic acid treatment or wilting and concentrate supplementation on silage intake and performance of store lambs



Irish Journal of Agricultural Research 25(3): 327-345



Herbage was cut from a perennial ryegrass/white clover sward either in early June (1st cut, experiment 1) or in August (2nd cut, experiment 2) and was ensiled untreated (U) or treated (F) with formic acid (2.5 litres/t) or wilted for 24 h before harvesting (W) with a double-chop harvester. Each silage was fed freely to Galway and Suffolk-X store lambs alone or supplemented with 350 or 700 g concentrates daily, using 24 lambs per treatment.
