A note on the feeding of fodder beet to dairy youngstock



Animal Production 46(2): 297-299



In experiment 1, 20 British Friesian heifers were given for 56 days barley straw ad libitum plus barley 2.5 kg and soyabean oilmeal (SBM) 0.25 kg or fodder beet (metabolizable energy (ME) 13.0 MJ/kg and crude protein (CP) 9.3%) 2.0 kg and SBM 0.75 kg. Total DM intake was similar for both treatments. For SBM and fodder beet diets CP intakes were 558 and 577 g/day and weight gains were 0.76 and 0.73 kg/day, respectively.
