Grass silage as a basic feed for store lambs. 2. Effect of harvesting system and chop length of grass silage on silage intake and performance of store lambs



Grass silage as a basic feed for store lambs. 2. Effect of harvesting system and chop length of grass silage on silage intake and performance of store lambs



Grass and Forage Science 51(4): 378-388



A perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) sward was cut at a leafy stage of growth and harvested with different harvesters to produce silages differing in chop length to evaluate the effect of silage chop length on silage intake and on the performance of store lambs when silage was fed as the sole diet.
