Finishing of store lambs on silage-based diets. 3. Effects of formic acid with or without formaldehyde as silage additives and barley supplementation on silage intake and lamb performance



Finishing of store lambs on silage-based diets. 3. Effects of formic acid with or without formaldehyde as silage additives and barley supplementation on silage intake and lamb performance



Irish Journal of Agricultural Research 25(3): 363-377



Silage was cut from a perennial ryegrass sward in late May/early June with a double-chop flail harvester and ensiled untreated (U) or treated with formic acid at 2.3 litres/t (FA) or with an equal mixture of formic acid and formalin (35% formaldehyde) at 4.6 litres/t (FF). The silages were given freely to Galway store lambs (41 kg liveweight) alone or supplemented with barley at 250 or 500 g daily during 12 weeks, using 24 lambs per treatment.
