Factors affecting substitution rates in dairy cows on silage-based rations



Factors affecting substitution rates in dairy cows on silage-based rations



Recent developments in ruminant nutrition 2: 223-236



The wide range in substitution rates of silage for concentrates is reviewed. Substitution of concentrates for silage can be influenced by the characteristics of the silage defined in terms of its intake as a sole feed modified for its effect on gut fill. Further, substitution rate can be influenced by type of concentrate, defined principally in terms of its protein content.
