Cultivars of forage sorghum for silage. II. Fermentation and nutritional characteristics of the silage



Cultivars of forage sorghum for silage. II. Fermentation and nutritional characteristics of the silage



Revista Argentina de Produccion Animal 12(2): 163-167



Six forage sorghum cultivars, differing widely in growth cycle and quality, were grown in Rafaela, Santa Fe, Argentina, in 1988-89, cut finely and ensiled in laboratory microsilos before analysis 90 d later. Fermentation was good in all samples with pH ranging from 3.2 to 4.2 and no evidence of butyric or propionic acids.
