Estimation of net energy of Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) silage and hay

Zootecnia e Nutrizione Animale 18(6): 271-283
Estimation of net energy of Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) silage and hay
Net energy was estimated in silage and hay prepared from Italian ryegrass (harvested at the heading stage and several days later, respectively) in 2 digestibility and calorimetric experiments in 4 adult Bergamasca wethers fed the 2 fodders to appetite. Nitrogen in silage and hay was 2.53 and 1.88%, and neutral detergent fibre (NDF) 55.0 and 63.8%, respectively. Intake of DM was 45.1 and 61.2 g/kg0.75. Digestible energy intake was similar for both fodders.
